How long before you went to firefighter 1
I have been volunteering at a local fire department for a little over a year now but they have still not sent me to firefighter 1 yet. From what I gather the classes are usually offered in January and June but for one reason or another it never works out and they say next time, which is discouraging because I want to get this out of my way then get my emt certification after. How long did it take you guys before they sent you to Firefighter 1 and also how long does an emt course take to complete? Are they only offered at certain times like ff1 or should I be looking at that in the meantime waiting for ff1? Thanks ahead of time for the imput.
