    after i do the wildland academy hopefully make it thru the week and also once i turn 18 theres this program i wana do its called americorps its pretty cool cause it started this year but basically you do this program for a year or once you finish 1700 hours or more but during that time doing the program your getting paid not that good but it doesnt matter cause you great training once you finish with it you get 20 certs all free and then you get like 5000 on education like an emt class or something

    I was a medic and as far as I can recall I was never jealous of the police or fire services. We all went on the same runs and did the jobs we were trained for.

    No wildland here in MS, state forestry dept takes care of all that. We do the little stuff here too. We did have a guy claim his tractor backfired and burned up almost an acre not long ago.

    Sunday morning at around 05:15 the Engine one house over from us caught a stolen truck on fire. Two minutes later we were sent to a drowning in their district (victim pulled to shore by neighbors.....CPR, defib by us, no luck :(). While we were both enroute to those calls a working structure fire came in and we were supposed to be the first two Engines due. It's a crazy job when you go from every unit in the City being in the barn to about 30 guys working thier asses off in the span of about 6 minutes.

    :D

    Here, in my county here at least, volunteer depts. cover areas not designated as wildlife refuge or city limits. We cover everything a paid dept would; it's just with our low call volume having a paid dept isn't economical.

    Most vol. depts. I know of will take any age below 18 with parents consent, however they are limited in their duties. One you hit 18 you can begin training and drive any county-owned vehicle at 21.
