    I'm not a firefighter, but I saw your OK State logo. Did you go there? Fire protection major?

    man i got my certs in 2005, FF I & II, EMT-B, and still never got hired. There are 10,000 ppl here with the same certs. :(
    I gave up after 2 years of testing. Got burned out. pun intended. But good luck, that was just my experience here in Dallas.

    Sorry to hear that man, my experience has been pretty good so far in the Dallas area. I took Mesquite written, there were 350 guys there taking it and you had to score in the top 50, I thought no way in hell but I was #20! So now I go take their agility test in a week, pretty pumped
