Looking for advice from older probies (40-50 range)
I am really interested in applying for a fire fighting job and I know that the Dept in my community will be hiring in 2014. I will be 51 then. I was an explorer and then a volunteer fireman in another part of the country for almost 10 years but that ended way back in 1987.
I plan to get my EMT cert. this year and am in good shape. I also have a ton of experience with tools and the building trades.
Is it ridiculous to think I have a chance at this?? Anyone who was an older probie have any advice?
