    goto your local firehouse, bring food, and talk to them about the job, maybe getting on as an explorer until your done with HS. Goto fire school, goto EMT school, fill out an application at www.coj.net. Jump through all the hoops and maybe you'll get picked up.

    They can tell you all about it.
