I've decided to forsake my quest for a job in IT, as well as the several thousand dollars I've thrown into my quest for a degree in neurology for a career as a firefighter. It seems like an interesting job that fills the medical criteria I've wanted since I was a kid (EMT/Paramedic is part of firefighting here in Florida) and at the same time adds the excitement of burning buildings and car wrecks. I don't really know why I'm bothering to let you all know this, but feel free to call me an idiot or applaud my idiocy.

So what's the process of becoming one? Are you going to be EMT/Paramedic? Meaning you don't run into the burning buildings?

In order to be a firefighter in Florida you have to be an EMT. The odds of you actually going on a fire call are something like 80:1 vs a car accident or heart attack.

Go for it. I've heard its good to have certification for everything (fire, emt, police) before you apply. Also, make sure you're in good shape.

Why don't you become a volunteer fire fighter first and see how you like it. I was one for several years and im in the process of joining a new dept now. At least being a volunteer you will get lots of training before you start the professional route and get an idea if you would like the job.

So this guy at my work used to be an engineer but now he's the IT guy and he fixes the computers and shit and one day I was sitting at my workstation and there was this huge explosion and I was like FUCK WHAT IS GOING THE FUCK ON DUDES and I ran outside and the IT guy was spraying the flaming dumpster with a hose and the fire started to lick the side of the building and then another thing blew up and fire puffed out and we all jumped back when the firetruck showed up and put it out and oh god it was a fucking jolt of awesome in the ass.

This thread reminded me of that story. It's a great story. Should I tell it again?

I noticed how, EMTs and firefighters are way hotter than us, being them with those uniforms while we had our raggy scrubs.

I've been riding on ambulances since I was 16, and I've been a NY State Certified EMT-B for almost 2 years now... I joined the USAF in March and I'm a Flight Medic now. Emergency Medicine is an amazing job, and I would encourage anyone who has interest to try it out...
