    I guess it will depend on (1) what your age is, (2) what department you wish to apply to, and (3) what age restriction that department has. In my dept there is no age limit for entry, but you would have to complete a rigorous training academy, assuming that you passed all the requirements for the position and were offered a position. We recently made an offer to a 52 y/o (previous experience as F.F.) but he declined the offer.I guess the thought of 19 weeks in the academy was not to his taste, who knows.
