    Hi guys I'm new here. I found this site through the police forum since I'm always on there. My brother is very interested in joining either City of Miami or Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. Any body have any info on when they'll be hiring? My brother just graduated high school what should he do now? Take some classes to get his EMT or what? I don't know much about the Fire Department & their hiring process.

    I would recommend calling their recruitment office and/or checking out their website for starters.
