Howdy y'all,
I've just been given a conditional job offer by James City County in Virginia pending background investigation. I'm not too worried since I don't have so much as a traffic ticket.
I volunteered as an EMT for a year and a half then worked in a pediatric ER through paramedic school. I have always aspired to be a firefighter/paramedic but have NO experience with the fire side. What do I need to know about academy? What do I need to know about entering the fire service?

Thanks,
the new girl
