Moving to a different state/ and the academy
I have recently been applying and testing for positions out of the state of Ohio. There are so many firefighter medics in this state it is hard to even get a job when the economy is not bad.
As said I have applied for a few metro departments and they seem to be moving the process along very quickly. I have a girlfriend who also has a 5 year old daughter that will be moving along if I go. She is pretty worried about moving away from her family and even mine, as she will know nobody, and moving her daughter somewhere completely different. Basically she is worried it will be hard to raise her daughter by ourselves (babysitting, and work conflicts, etc.) I completely understand her point, but if anybody has some insight on this.
Also, metro fire academies- DeKalb, Nashville, D.C, Fairfax County- Any info on what its like would be great.
