    Default what other jobs are there besides in the fire service

    Im 20, in the midst of getting in shape to become a wildland firefighter, i have a back problem that may stop me from being a "firefighter". Im going to college taking the basic firetech classes and might go for a degree or something. What other careers are there besides the fire service?

    I take it you mean still fire service related? If so, sure there are. You can get your fire inspector/investigator cert and work for either a government entity as a civilian inspector (my FD has a civilian inspector) or an insurance company as an investigator.

    You may want to investigate the reasearch end of firefighting and firefighting technology as well.

    Firefighting experience would be helpful but not a requirement. A college education would be a must.
