    Default Fairfax county fire department

    I am taking the test with the Fairfax county fire department this week, and was wondering if havig little to no experience means that I don't stand a chance at getting a job? I am joining a vol. dept here in NY in the mean time to get experience, but I feel that I might be wasting my time traveling there to take the test.

    Only experiance that helps in the process is being a medic. GO FOR IT! FFX is a great department.
