    Default Departments that hire FF/EMTs?

    Hey Guys,
    I am about to start my EMT in January and then from there I will be going to the fire academy. I plan to obtain my paramedic starting in the FALL of 2009, but are any of you aware of any departments that hire Firefighter/EMTs ?? I heard that some will hire you but you need to obtain your Medic within a certain time frame. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
    -Matt

    also for the record, I am in South East Florida (Broward), however I would consider Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Miami Dade etc.

    Most departments in Polk County do not require you to be a medic. You can get hired as an EMT and there are usually incentives to become a medic. Openings are few and far between right now.
