907farmer Volunteer/paid Emt, Firefighter in Girdwood Alaska. About 35 mile south of Anchorage, and a wild land firefighter 2. Been with the dept for going in 3 years now.

My volunteer/paid department is set up so we are paid while on a call or in training. Training is mandatory once a week for 4-5 hours plus shifts. We have 12 hour call shifts that require out of towners to sleep in the station. We are also required to have at least 48 hours in call shifts per month.

If pays for the gas and oil changes.

A degree in anything will help. Most departments want to get accredited and that helps. A lot of depts will require that for promotion too. A degree in Physical Education will get you far in today's fire service.

Either fire degree or experience and certifications with a volunteer FD.
Don't need it for professional Dept, but every bit helps: prior experience, college degree, ect. I did the college degree route, don't use my degree (arson), but I'm sure it helped me get on, and will help me get promoted.

Can't hurt, and college is a great experience! Do remember, you will be given a polygraph, so don't raise TOO much hell!

oilwell1415 21 year Civil Air Patrol member. Somewhere around 40 finds and nearly a dozen SAR qualifications. Pay sucks, but I've had experiences that I wouldn't trade for anything. Probably a few more experiences I would trade for nothing, LOL.

If you are interested in EMS you can get a lot of the training for free, or real close to it through CAP, and have a little more experience to base your decision to make it a career or not on.
