    I used to live in Camden County GA. Every person on the squad was also a Firefighter. The county also had engines running ALS as first responders outside of the city areas. I dont know if you have to be a medic or not, but If you could get on with them it would be a dual role.

    Apply for the job would be the first step.......if they are not hiring where you live or would like to work, and the job is really what you want, apply other places and be ready to move. If you are an EMT-I, you can get hired if you just go for it.

    If you have your NREMT-I then try newport news,va. We make it required that all new hires get at least emt-I. Here is the page NNFD.org
