possession of EMT certification
"No candidate will be appointed to the position of Firefighter without possession of EMT certification." Strange just have EMT-B and be a pop out for that but not so for fire.
Current State of Minnesota EMT-B
SP demands applicants have Current State of Minnesota Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification prior to date of hire. However no such demand is required for Firefighter I and Firefighter II. Likewise everyone is going to be in the 3-month academy. So why not start every new applicant from scratch as if they had no certifications what so ever. Pop out was a reference to Montgomery County MD FF's from the late 80's and early 90's who had backgrounds as firefighters and EMT-A's who conducted the challenge process while in the academy due to having such backgrounds. If they were successful they went right out to the work force and graduated with the class when everyone finished the academy. To the best of my knowledge it is no longer conducted perhaps due to improper methods and field applications of medical standards used for shortcuts.
