    Another member at my dept turned me on to the Americorp's program. I have not looked deeper into the program so i dont know it all, but they arrange programs for you to do some on call time with local or out of state FD's or EMS agencies in which they will pay you a small sum for your time. At the end they also give you something like $4000 for college tuition.

    Check with your local University or Technical College that has fire or ems classes. They should know where to look.

    Also check the firefighter/ems organizations such as different firefighter associations, fire chief's associations, etc.
