    Not yet. I'm dropping off a volunteer application tomorrow though. I'll do EMT-B in the summer semester once my Hep B vaccination series is complete. As for an academy, my only option would be an online/onsite program due to work obligations. So far I like the way the Texas Fire Academy looks, and it also happens to be run by the volunteer department I'm applying to.

    Yep, I'm here in northwest Austin, and will probably be joining a local dept in January (submitted completed app in May but there's been a budget freeze.)

    I'll be volunteer, since my day job is mechanical engineer.
