    No but you should not limit yourself to one dept or you may never get hired

    Test everywhere and often

    The test is a little silky.. A personality exam pretty much.. If you live in PA try and get either firefighter 1 and/or EMT.. You get extra points.. They also do vets points.

    When I went through the process in 2012 they have ALL vets hiring preference first..

    Don't let yourself get fat after you get out.. I gained weight once I got out of the army, but the medical portion has a straight height/ weight ratio similar to the military.. However if you fail, there's no tape test or anything.. So try to keep in the lighter side..

    All in all.. It's a busy department, big city.. I would've loved to work there..

    Good luck and thanks for your service.
