    Default How old is to old????

    I am just turning 31 years old and now just in basic EMT and looking at a fire academy next year. Does anyone have any insight on how old is to old??? Will I be passed up for being over 30 with minimal experience???. I have spent 10 years in the Airlines and am finished with it. Any info would be highly appreciated!!!

    Well, if you are in the physical condition to do Fire Suppression, and you have the training, and state or county law will allow older Fire Fighters. Then you are good to go.

    You're not too old, we have a 49 year old probie, and he can hang in there with a lot of us younger guys!
    These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.

    Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.
