    Lightbulb Diabetic Firefighters

    Hi, I am sixteen and a type one diabetic. I was just wondering if I can be a firefighter. If I can be a firefighter I was wondering what I need to do to get hired with a department. All I know is that diabetics can't drive fire trucks but I don't know how true that is. I saw someone post something on some other site saying that diabetics can't be firefighters because they might go low during a fire and can't stop and get something to eat. I personally believe that is true but won't happen because stations like the one where I am a fire explore will only go on a fire call once a month or less most of the calls are medical and auto accidents. I would like to hear from people that are firefighters or knows anybody who is a diabetic (type one) working as a firefighter.

    thank you and stay safe.
