Interviewing for the fire department isn't the same as interviewing for other jobs. Your not competing against others based on the interview. The interview is more of an informational meeting with the fire chief.

You don't make mistakes in this line of work.. If you do, someone may die.

This job is not for everybody. You've got to really love it to stay in it and make a career out of it.

I am a left below the knee amputee and am going to be 55 years old soon. I am a front line firefighter and slated to retire September 1, 2017. I have literally interviewed at every hospital for a job but as soon as the subject of me being an amputee comes up I never hear from them again. It is hurtful, discouraging and frightening. I have 25 experience in the field and it is such a shame they throw that away and are so descriminatory. I am starting to feel desperate. In this field it's truly who you know not what you know. I guess I need to think out of the box and look for Paramedic jobs outside of the hospital. Can anyone help me?
