    Default Nashville FD..... What should I do to get hired on?

    Im fresh out of high school and I am looking to be a Firefighter, but I almost have no idea where to start. I read somewhere i should get my EMT first?

    First off, in order to apply to Nashville you must be within 2 months of your 21st birthday. Secondly, you can only apply when they open the job up for applications once every 3 yrs or so. The next testing session will probably be the summer or fall of 2013. Last go around about 4200 people applied and about half of that actually made the hire list. So far, they've only hired around 60 off the list. I would go to school and get a degree in something you could actually use and pick up my EMT along the way. Then apply to Nashville or surrounding agencies and see what happens. You can check out the main Nashville thread to keep up to date on what is going on.
