you ask to many questions!!!!!!!!!!
if you look at fort worth, they pay while you go through training and a little more after you get out:::
Base Salary - $3,104 monthly during training (approximately six months) / $3999 monthly upon graduation ($47,986 annually)
cannot say much on medical cert, except I think you can get emt through the state of texas and or the nation registry and either is good to work in texas
suggest once again talk to hazco and they will tell you for sure,
or justwait and someone will but me straight
sounds like in your case you want to play it safe on get the certs first and then apply what ever works for you
as far as follow on training kind of depends on the dept you work for and where you want to go,
for medical paramedic would be a good thing to get.
on the fire side there are so many classes you can take that you will be doing it the rest of your career.
most departments either do thier own training, have instructors come in, or send you out to get the needed hours on both the fire and medical
