    Default Hi / Introduction

    Hi guys,

    I have been reading over this website for a few months now and decided to join the forum.

    I am enrolled in EMT school and going to fire school in Central FL next year. I have been very interested in becoming a FF but have been in real estate development for the last several years after graduating from college in 2006. I have been living in NC but I was born in South FL and had been living in Orlando up until last year. I realize getting a job as a FF is very competitive, but I look forward to working hard and plugging away at it until it happens. I have 2 family members that are FF's. One has retired and one is currently working in South FL. Everyone I know loves it and I've never been around a group of people that actually love their job.

    I just wanted to say hello to everybody and I'd definitely like to hear from you all. Any pointers, words of encouragement, pros and cons of the fire schools in Central FL, stories, etc are certainly welcomed.

    PS - I am hoping to get into Central FL Fire Academy. I hear it's hard to get into. Hopefully having my EMT and a 4 yr degree (in Business) will get me into fire school. I've also heard good things about Valencia but I am heavily leaning towards Central FL Fire Academy. I've talked to the director several times and he's been very helpful and encouraging.

    Thanks for reading...
