Hi, my name is Dan Reinke i live in the great state of Minnesota. I am currently attending the university of Wisconsin River falls. I plan to become a firefighter someday, but want to get a 4 year degree as a back up plan. I am just curious to know if there is any advice on what degree may help toward getting a job as a firefighter in the future. My professor for my first aid and basic life support class is the chief in a surrounding Department, he suggested getting a 4 year degree to help me move up the ladder further down in my career, but we are both very busy and i haven't had time to arrange a meeting to get further advice. any advice would be greatly appreciated!?
