Chief Lepore thank you for all the great advice you have given in the forums. My question to you is should i attend paramedic school starting in May or attend a firefighter academy. I currently live in Dallas and i have my EMT already with some hospital experience as i was a nurses assistant before my EMT. I also have two college degrees. I really want to work for Dallas Fire Rescue and during my final internship for my EMT i had the privilege ro ride along with firefighter/paramedics. It has given me great insight and it was a great learning experience as well. I am doing everything it takes so i can be ready when the test comes along in the fall. Thank you for your time and any adivce you could give me.

If I was a city manager and my academy flushed out 40%, I would fire the chief or take issue with the commission.My posts reflect my views and opinions, not the organization I work for or my IAFF local. Some of which they may not agree. I.A.C.O.J. member
