I know this has been beaten like a dead horse, but my question is very specific. I decided after 6 years of being an acountant, that I really want to live the dream and go back to school for EMT & fire. Anyone here on Glock Talk have any advice on: Testing in Florida Should I get my paramedic cert before or during the actaual application process? Who are considered the best cities or counties to work for in South Florida (from North Palm Beach to Miami)? Which city or county is a good place to get your foot in the door (Maybe not the best pay, but openings are common)? What time and what day is a good time to visit a station? What is the best way to get a firefighter to be your mentor? Any help from Florida firefighters would be sincerely appreciated.
