I'm a vol FF considering pursuing career FF somewhere -- would getting EMT help?
I have the opportunity to go thru EMT class thru the fire dept I'm currently a firefighter with... But before I make the time commitment, wanted to ask if people think I should go for it -- in other words, will most fire dept's accept EMT cert or make you go through EMT cert again?
Might be a crazy question but my assumption is that most big city fire dept's want you to go thru their own fire academy even if you have FF1 already (is that right?), so same question for EMT...
