    Here are a couple more.

    Memphis Tennessee is accepting applications for firefighter/paramedics and are now offering a 10,000 dollar sign on bonus.

    Washington DC is always accepting applications for firefighter/paramedics as well.

    Google both city web sites and you should be able to find applications.

    Memphis needs ff/medics bad. You get a $10,000 signing bonus and make $3,700 a month starting off.

    Houston is 19 years old, but 60 hours of college. So you probably have to be around 20 to have that many hours.

    San Antonio is testing this summer also. I'm not sure what their age requirement is.

    I don't know about being certified as a firefighter. Chances are they teach you what they want you to know on that end, however they do require that you be certified as a paramedic to be eligible for the ff/medic positions at this time.

    Don't know if you'd consider San Bernardino County Big, but we have over 300 FT personnel.

    Here is the job announcement area on the website:

    http://www.sbcfire.org/emp_opportunities/index.asp

    I know that we will be hiring at least 40 more people before the end of the year.
