I was wondering how hard it is to get a job at the Baltimore fire department?
I am planning on applying during the next application period, and was wondering what my chances are for getting hired. How many people usually apply and how many positions are usually available? Would it benefit me to go through paramedic class before I apply or do they not accept that? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

And I know most new hires have to ride the rescue for a few years, that doesnt bother me.
