    I reveiwed those websites. Maybe someone who works for Rural Metro would better answer my questions about the department. I have questions about the following which I am unable to find on their website (pay scale, advancement opportunities, station life).

    Also, the fire certs should not be a problem but what about my paramedic cert. How hard are the to transfer. I know here in Florida it is easier to take the classes again then to try and have them trasnfered.

    Thanks again

    Just to add that you may want to study the IFSTA firefighter I&II book because the Arizona test has some trickey questions. BAck when I took it, I thought the NREMT was easier than it was.

    Also be sure to do some reading on Rural/Metro before you go with them...

    PM me about pay,
    as far as medic goes, do you have NREMT? If you have/get NREMT the state will give you a temp 6-month card to work and than you just need to take a refresher to get the two-year card.

    Arizona does not have reciprocal agreements for EMT certification with any other state or jurisdiction. However, if you have current EMT certification or licensure in another state or jurisdiction, have current NREMT registration, or have current NREMT reregistration eligibility, you may apply for initial two-year Arizona EMT certification after completing an Arizona ALS refresher or EMT-B refresher rather than an Arizona EMT-B, EMT-I(99), or EMT-P course. The requirements for initial two-year EMT certification are provided in R9-25-404, available here.

    In addition, if you hold current NREMT registration as an EMT-Basic or EMT-Paramedic, but have not yet completed an Arizona ALS refresher or EMT-B refresher, you may apply for one temporary 6-month EMT-B or EMT-P certification. Temporary 6-month EMT certification may be extended for 18 months after an EMT completes an Arizona ALS refresher or EMT-B refresher. The requirements for temporary certification are provided in R9-25-405, available here
