This one should inspire all of you who keep hearing how long it will take to get into the fire department.

I decided to become a firefighter just about a year ago. I went to school to become an EMT, and as soon as I started classes, I was told about Firecareers.com. Within my first month, I was testing in Oakland, and made it all the way to the Chief’s oral. Unfortunately, they went on a hiring freeze, but after two more months I landed another Chief’s interview in Raton, New Mexico. A month later, I was offered a job, and here I am, a full-time, paid firefighter.

If I didn’t have Firecareers.com as a resource, I’m not sure how I would have found out about all these opportunities. With all the effort of applications, tests, and training it was a relief to know I could just check my email to find out about upcoming openings. I can’t imagine trying to do all this on my own. For my money and time, there is just nothing better.

Thanks again Firecareers.com,
