How long does the hiring process take?
From what I've been reading it seems like the hiring process for firefighters takes a while. Testing is done every couple of years or something like that? The reason I ask is because I am currently a sophomore in college and will be taking my EMT-B class in the fall or next spring and am trying to figure out when a good time to apply is. I want to finish my degree first, but don't want to sit around for 2 years after graduation before I can get a job....it would be much better to go to the academy soon after graduation.
P.S. Sorry for the rushed message but I'm a little short on time...hope it's not too unclear
