    Default firefighter in indiana

    I live in indiana and i have thought about becoming a firefighter for a long time. I just dont know where to start to pursue the career. Do i just start taking local classes and then apply somewhere? Where can i get a list of requirements? I suppose my ultimate question would be who do i contact locally to get me started?

    thanks everyone

    The first thing is what part of Indiana do you live in and are you willing to move? Some areas of the state are better for getting a job than others. Are there any vol. departments around you? Ivy Tech has a fire science program. Most hospitals offer EMT-B courses as well as Ivy Tech. Answering these questions will help you get on the right path. Feel free to PM me if yuo have more questions.
