Hello all. I’m a long time lurker but first time poster. A little background info, I’m 19, an avid lifter, and I’m attending college pursuing a degree in criminal justice/law enforcement. I am currently on the fence about what I want to do career wise though. I am interested in law enforcement but I have also been drawn to firefighting for quite some time. I was wondering if anyone on these boards could give me some insight into the process of becoming a firefighter, what I can do college wise (if my current path is okay), and any other things that might be handy in pursuing this career.
I have already considered volunteering at a local fire house on days where my class load is light. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
