Hello, my name is Ryan. I live in Conway, Arkansas. And I need some advice on what would probably be the best route for me to take to become a firefighter. Such as which would make me more qualified and such. My dad keeps urging me to go and get atleast a bachelors in business, that way I would have something to fall back on. And as far as I can, a business degree would help me with moving up in the ranks? Possibly? Anyways, I know I pretty much have to get the associates degree in Fire Science and get EMT training. But I just need advice on exactly what order and what all I should do. Much appreciated...Ryan.
