    Default Hello from sunny Arizona

    Hello, my name is Beth and I live in Chandler, AZ. I am currently a desktop publisher but will be getting into the FF/EMT program starting this summer at Mesa CC. Quite the career change, eh?

    I'm still trying to figure out my reasoning for this...early mid-life crisis? Perhaps it's finally dawning on me that I really want to do something with my life, and for me, that entails helping others. I had the priviledge of going on a ride-along with Northwest Fire down in Tuscon a while ago and was just so blown away by it...I couldn't get it out of my mind. That sense of belonging and helping others was amazing. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted it. So that's where I am.

    I look forward to reading what everyone has to say and their advice about things. This is a great place to be.

    Beth

    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong

    Cool

    Hi Beth. Welcome to the forums. Good luck on your road to become an FF/EMT. Do you know where you want to work? Chandler may be hiring.

    I have family in Chandler and in Phoenix too.



    Good Luck.


    Stay Safe & Well out there.....

    I'd like to work for Phoenix, but really, I'll take what I can get.

    I'm about a year and a half out until I really start looking (after I get my EMT and FF 1 & 2 from MCC). Until then, it's networking, networking, networking for me. Oh, and some studying.
