My path with fire service
I recently graduated high school and I am planning on taking one year of college this coming semester. I have held a few different restaurant jobs but i am looking for something through college that i could use as a good reference and as experience for the oral interview.
I met the captain at the fire station after talking with him he said i had great interviews skills and i asked what i needed to do for a ride along. My ride along day came around and i brought in donuts and shook everyones hands when i first walked in, then helped with all the morning clean up. I was the goffer on the calls i carried around the ems bag the whole day. Through out the day i was quiet, very polite asking where i needed to help out, but it was there day to relax he said so not much was going on. As i left as shook everyones hands and said there name nice to meet them and goodbye. I talked to the captain later thanking him and asking to come on heavy rescue training day. He told me he would be happy to have me and it will be a 24hr shift.
While i am up there i am going to take my courses of study sheet and ask which classes i should take besides EMT and FF1. Also try to find out if they are hiring next year if not i will ask about an intership over the summer, i will have EMT and FF1 by then.
Is there anything elses i should be doing ? Asking certain questions to get more out of the ride along i know i will need help with the oral interview. I want to get hired next year i will be 19.
