Wash DC -- FF/Paramedic (national registry)

Post  Sean Wilson on Tue Dec 28, 2010 5:26 pm

Saw a job posting recently for FF/Paramedic for DC. All you need to apply is National Registry Paramedic. You would go thru the DC fire academy, so you do not need fire cert's to apply.

Best of luck. Bob Perry's son got laid off from Monroe FD in Michigan a year and a half ago, and is now a DC firefighter. So it can be done. You wanna be a big-city fireman? You wanna work in the ghetto and fight a lot of fire? Here's your chance.
