Years With Department/Agency
I am going to take fire science classes and first response classes at Savannah Tech in the fall of 2010.
I am a 17 year old southern gal. I enjoy riding horses and four-wheelers, fishing, hiking, and camping. If I am not outside it is probably raining, or I am doing school (I am homeschooled). I love animals, and have two horses, a goat, three dogs, and a cat.
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I want to be a firefighter because I want to help make a difference in the world. I want to help people. Even if it means taking some bad, with the good.
Keep in touch with me over the year and I will let you know if we will have a Jun class in 2010. You will want to apply around Aug. It takes about 6-8 months to get through everything. Enjoy your last year of school.
We are scheduled to hire 85 new positions plus replacements over the next fire years. We usually do a recurit school every Jan and Jun of about 30 people. This might only be a Jan school over the next 5 years because of budget. Just giving people an option to start a career instead of college. We will train you in our academy for 24 weeks, alot of that training can be applied to a fire science degree at the local college. Best part is you get paid to do all of this. Check out the website and keep the questions comming. When do you graduate?

Trying to come back to GA. to work. Born and raised here in TN. but I was gone for 20 yrs., 14 of that in the Atlanta area. Moved back to TN. in 2000. I was a police officer in Cobb and Paulding Counties, prior to coming back to TN. I'm applying for a officers position in Cartersville as we speak. Got a friend who insist I stay in an extra bedroom he has the days I work and come home to TN. on my off days, if I get the job.
Thank you, I needed that verse this morning. I'm about to run over to Chattanooga for a TVA job fair this afternoon I have been out of work off and on for 18 mos., since my fire chief,s job was eliminated in Aug. 2007. I have filled out countless applications but the rest of America is looking for work now too. I get aggravated with it but I know God will and is taking care of me and he wouldn't have allowed that door to close in 2007 if he didn't have something else for me, I just have to keep in mind that it will be on his time schedule. I,ll let you know what happens. Paul
