If a disability interferes with someone's ability to do a primary task, it can be grounds for not hiring them or even dismissal with no ADA repercussions whatsoever.
A seizure disorder is a serious condition and can be argued as incompatible with firefighting under NFPA 1582. Specifically, it's a Category A medical condition and strong disqualifier from the job. Under the best of circumstances, a strictly controlled condition with no seizure activity in 5 years, it may be recategorized under Category B for a return to work.
In short, eaglesrule1024, you need to be more concerned with your health than with trying to get back on a job you've only had for a few months anyway."Nemo Plus Voluptatis Quam Nos Habant"
The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.
