Questions About Federal Fire Departments.
Ok a little background first. Been a Volunteer firefighter for 6 years and recently got my paramedic. I also have FFI, FFII, Instructor 1, Hazmat ops, vehicle rescue tech, all Pro Board. I have various other certs but they are not pro board.
I have been trying to move into the DC area I have recently applied to Fort Meyer and Fort Belvoir. These positions are FF/BLS I know its not for a medic firefighter and my medic wont help too much in the hiring, but I need a job anything I can get at this point.
So my questions are
1. I know Driver operator is big as well as ARFF, do I even stand a chance without these certs?
2. What is the physical agility test, there is no info on USAJOBS.gov about what it consist of.
3. Does the Army employ FF/Medics or is paramedic another position altogether? All I have seen on the government site is for firefighter BLS not ALS.
