    I don't really know how the qualifications will transfer, but you can get a EMT or Paramedic cert. now. Any firefighting experience will be helpful and also make the tests for Firefighter I and II easier. You can use practical experience to challange the tests for FF I and II. With those qualifications the next step would be to get on the hiring lists for departments. They very from place to place but usually they have a written and physical test when a vacancy arrises or various times throught the year.
