I have been in the fire service as a Volly for 2 years now, and absolutely love it. I am doing the corporate thing right now but dread getting up for work each morning. I am 28 and would love to get into a paid department. I am in NY state and have been taking all of the state offered classes possible, and will be taking the
EMT-B course over the summer.

Do you guys think that it is to late in life to try to get into a paid department? If not, what is the best way to go about increasing my chances of getting into one? I am in NY state and have been taking all of the state classes possible, and will be taking the EMT course over the summer.

Any advise that you guys out there can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
