what's california looking for?
There is a very good chance that I will be moving to california in the next couple of years (to Lodi...an hour outisde of sacramento) and was wondering what the fire depts are looking for in an applicant. I currently live in Illinois an I am on a volunteer dept and plan on going career after school. I have my EMT-B, and am currently working on my Fire Apparatus Engineer certification, and in the next year should be FF2 certified. I know out here anymore, they want you to be FF2/Paramedic before they even consider you (atleast up north that is...)
Any info on what Fire Depts in Northern California are looking for would be greatly appreciated!
