Nice to see you are interested in the profession. I was a call FF for 9 years before I move out of town and loved it. I have no time to join now so I am happy working as an EMT full time. I have been an EMT for 18 years and the only reason I got my EMT was because of the Fire Dept. I have 4 daughters so no time for the Voly or call depts at this time but I might look into it in the future. Take care and the 1 thing I want to pass on is LISTEN to the senior FF on your dept, they are full of knowledge and will teach you to be safe. Have fun and be safe.
