I have allot of certs and state EMT but not national reg yet. Im looking for some advice to help me get off my feet in the fire service. Im not really sure where to start out, should i volunteer or apply for city and cal fire dpts? keeping in mind that i have no fire experience other than through my FF1 academy i feel like my chances of getting a job right out of the academy are slim to none. Any advice would be great. Thanks.
