I have read all the forums and people explain that you need to be a medic to have a chance, test multiple times, know somebody, have a fire degree and so on. Well I don't have any of those and I just recently locked up my EMTB cert. I am a military vet and have an advanced degree.I just recently graduated from a volunteer fire academy. However, I believe I can interview and I invested in Bob's and Chief L's oral strategies. Fortunately, this department is interviewing 70 people for 9-12 positions. Amazing odds compared to everywhere else. So can it be done, somebody with such little experience given a badge?
