    Anyone on here know of anyone that's hiring fire fightersor EMT's? I'm located in San Diego but if something good enough pops up I'm willing to relocate. I'm a certified EMT and I get my Associates Degree in Fire Science and Technology next Thursday. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreicated!

    Yeah I checked it out last night! I need to sign up and become a member so I can see all the postings. Any recommendations on things I should be doing in the mean time? CPAT, academies, etc.?

    Are you in shape? If not get to it!

    I work out 7 days a week to stay in shape. Google some work outs.

    Far as CPAT you can take the test and its good for one year so if a department requires it you can show them the card with your time.



    Some departments have their own like the ones around here dont do the cpat.

    They have their own.

    How much exp do you have?

    Gilbert AZ is hiring. its just SE of Phoenix. not too far from you. Take the test on National Testing Network for $40 and then send the results to depts all over the place for $7 each.


    Hopefully OH doesn't hire a 22yo EMT with only a AAS in fire. But it is an opening and if you meet the min requirements, why not apply?

    Nationsl testing network? I must look into this!!!!

    Also yeah I know but you cant judge on age, i met a guy that was 26 and chief of a volunteer department and he is pretty smart about calling situations!

    The AAS might be the no go though think they require a bachelors degree.


    Personally i would not want to do it, i dont have nearly enough experience

    haha that's funny I grew up in Gilbert, I might have to make some phone calls on that one. As far as experience goes not a whole lot yet, just my associates, EMT, and some volunteering stuff here and there. I haven't had any work related experience yet unfortunately. Trying to get hired for anything out here in SD insanely hard. You won't even get looked at unless you're a medic.
