Paramedics are strongly encouraged to test (you will need NREMT-P to become State of Alaska MICP licensed). And as a reminder, anyone can apply for the testing - successful applicants will receive Firefighter I/II and EMT-Basic training in the new hire academy.

For further information about the Anchorage Fire Department new hire testing this summer and about the department in general, check out the websites below:
