Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I was 15 when I joined Antioch FD. I mainly started in the FD to get out of school since our schools in Clarke County AL encourage you to go to fires. There is not one career FD in Clarke County... After my first few fires, I knew it was in my blood and I would want to do this for the rest of my life.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
The rush of adrineline is a great feeling but the best part is when its over you do not lose your high since you know you have helped someone in some way.

It is unlikely that we'll advertise again before this fall.
Our official web site typically advertises the test dates and process at: http://www.hiltonheadislandsc.gov/

We also usually advertise on the South Carolina on Fire page at:
http://www.sconfire.com/

SConFire often has some good fire-rescue stories from my department and our neighbors in Bluffton, Burton, Beaufort/Port Royal, and Lady's Island/St. Helena.

We advertise nationally approximately once every two years.
We hold a written test for a large group. Usually this is about 150 applicants or so. This test is pass/fail. Everyone that passes is invited back for a physical ability test about a month later. That test is also pass/fail. Everyone that passes the PAT is invited to an oral interview with a panel of firefighters, apparatus operators, and company officers immediately after a shower and lunch. The oral is scored by a standardized point system, and the results are normalized with statistical methods.

The test results are evaluated by our town human resources department. H.R. ranks the applicants based on experience, education, and existing qualifications, then notifies each successful candidate that he/she is on the hire list.

We usually go about 50 deep into the list. We don't hire that many, but some applicants accept other jobs, some choose not to move for the job, and some don't pass the pre-hire background check.

We still lose some new firefighters to homesickness in the first year or so, but our recruiting is pretty successful. We don't have our own training center yet, so we're limited to 3 candidates per recruit scho0l at the state fire academy. Training, not hiring, is the limiting factor on keeping fully staffed for us.
