    Default I want FF as a career, how's this 4 a start...

    Hi, I知 22 and I currently live in the Los Angeles area, and I'm looking to have a long career as a Firefighter. I have read here and there, Captain Bob has a lot of great info to give, although I never personally talked to him. Anyways, I have a rough idea on what my foundation is going to be, and here it is...

    On August 30th I will start an accelerated EMT-I course at School of EMT in Long Beach. The course is exactly a month long and will hopefully soon after be working as an EMT-I. Anybody attend School of EMT? How was it? What was the difficulty level?

    And than 6 months down the road I plan to apply to UCLA's prehosptial paramedic program, which will take about 7 to 8 months.

    After this I have no clue on where to start my career as a FF. The city that I live in (Glendale) has a Cadet program, I don't know whether to start there or go straight to an accredited academy or just straight out apply for FF and go to the academy through them. Which is easier said than done I know, but I'm talking as if I have already done my research and work for the interview process and have been accepted to there academy. I知 not sure if there is anything I can do right now to start the process besides the EMT-I an EMT-P part. Is there anything else I can start myself of with? I知 really ambitious and I知 ready to get my self on the right track to be a firefighter. I am in need of advice and guidance, thanks a head of time.
