Question about moving around, lifestyle, etc.
I'm currently 19 years old and seriously considering a career in the Firefighting / EMS field. Since it is so hard to get hired at many places I am looking into moving at some point to a new area to work as either a firefighter or an EMT to start out. I also realize that I may either need to (to find a better job such as going from an EMT to a firefighter) or want to move again (to a nicer area) after I make my first move to a new area. The first time that I moved in my life was when I moved to college last year 2 hours from my hometown. Because of this the idea of moving around to other areas, most likely outside my home state of California, is exciting but makes me nervous at the same time as I wouldn't know anyone and I would have to adjust to the area while working or going through training. I was just hoping to get some comments on this from people who have been in the situation before me and how you handled it, what you thought of it both before going and after, was it easy to adjust, etc. Thanks in advance for any replies!
