    Default New guy from Cali

    I'm 23 and live in norcal. My father has been a firefighter for 14 years and is a captain. I have a degree in Business Management. I got my first responder and I have my EMT final exam wed. I joined this site hoping to gain more information about this great career as I do have many questions and enjoy feedback from different point of views.

    So, you are planning on being a firefighter?

    The degree in business management may not be of any use for you until you move up the ranks, captain and above. A fire sceince degree would be a lot better to have.

    Oh, are you just following your fathers footsteps or do you plan on making the fire service a life long career???

    Have you done any other type of work??

    Yes I'm going to start working on that fire science degree this fall. I actually went to college and studied business management because I had a full ride scholarship for basketball. My dad always told me to go get my degree before I start pursuing a fire career.

    I plan on making the fire service a life long career. I see the joy and fullfillment my dad gets from this career and it has always been something I have wanted to do. I couldnt see myself doing anything else.

    I'm trying to become a paid call firefighter in my district. Along with taking classes to obtain my fire science degree, do you have any other suggestions of what I should be doing?
