I am exploring the possibility of entering the side of FF Rehab while I heal from a knee injury last spring but I'm not sure how great the opportunity is. Last time I did rehab work was in high school when I couldn't go interior. So I'm no stranger but feel there's so much to learn about just rehab programs in FD.

Recently, I have enrolled in a community college that offers both Fire Science and Paramedic degrees at night. It works perfect with my current work schedule until I complete both degrees and make a career change back into Fire/EMS full time. Although I am stoked to do this, I just found out that the F.S. program does not include the IFSAC FF1 certification. I have long debated whether I wanted to go just into EMS first and later add Firefighting if that's where I fel I needed to be. The…Continue
