    im going to be honest and you're probably not going to like my answer.

    lets play oral board for a minute - why should _FD hire you? what have you done to prepare for the position?

    no fire cert? no emt cert? im sure you can find a department that doesnt require it (no emt will be hard and medical is like 80% of the job), but i hope you realize that you show no initiative for the career, there are 1000s of other candidates who will be looked at over you. every board ive been on ask in some form what have you done to prepare/why do you want to be a firefighter? and i highly doubt you will have an answer to convince them you really want the job... i wouldnt waste your time.
