    Default Howdy from Florida!

    Hey, folks. I have just come across this Forum and thrilled at the information gleaned so far.

    I live in Florida and am looking to changed careers in a few years, applied for EMT/FF school starting in August (night school) and continuing to work full time as a teacher.

    I have always been service oriented and rescue is something that I feel will be as rewarding, if not more so, than teaching.

    Are there any other teachers cum EMTs or Firefighters out there?

    Hope you don't plan on getting hired right now.
    At least in most areas of Fla, FF jobs are like gold.

    Actually platinum.

    In any case, welcome.

    I haven't even started EMT school yet. This is way, way down the road, since I am working full time to put myself through school.

    I already work for the county so should have a foot in.

    Since he is taking night classes, it will take at least a year for him complete EMT and FF school. I believe (personally) that within a year or 2, jobs will open up around here.

    Good luck.

    It will probably be more like three years. I am considering Paramedic school after FF and volunteering over my summer vacation and weekends.

    The school I am going to prefers their paramedic applicants to have "fire-agency sponsorship."
