My advice would be to go to your local dept. and check in with them. Tell them you are considering a career in the fire fighting field and would like to volunteer to see what it is like. Most will at least give you the details on what it takes to become a firefighter whether it is volunteer or paid. Most states have minimum requirements for firefighters regardless of whether they are paid or not for things such as interior attack. Get withem and let them help you. Get a little experience, stay clean and you may get a large dept. to pay for your education.

This is the best way to go about it. Most depts will point you in the direction of a firefighter class. Our volunteer dept reimburses you for the cost of the class after 1 year of service

Yeah I agree talk to the local dept as they will have their own bylaws Im sure. How it works where I live is you need one of the fireman to sponsor you and you go through a years probation and then the dept votes you in or out. In michigan you have to have so many hours of practicals and book work to be on the roster I used to be a full time fireman or pump operator. They did away with the full time employees and went all volunteer.
