I'm 23 years old, and am planning on joining NAVY reserves this summer, and would like to use my training to get into my local fire department.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
When I was working Valet at St Joes hospital there was an incident where a man in an electrical wheelchair rode off the curb resulting in being pinned face down on the concrete, due to policies and procedures the only thing that I could do was call for help. That was when I decided I wanted to be a part of the response crew, someone that is properly trained to help people.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I know that it makes a difference

Hi Mai'lani. Just curious, are you from Hawaii or Micronesia area? Your first name and the turtle tattoo on your arm has Pacific Islander ring to it. How is the Navy Reserves? Take care, stay safe, Horst
Depends on which school you go to. TEEX in Texas has a 10 week program that is intense, but is not recognized in all states. Some states require a two year degree program. Wyoming does not offer a course so we have to go out of state and the programs are 6 months to 18 motnhs to complete. My chance has been put on hold until I get back from Kuwait in 2010..
