Dats what i want to do PremiumMods. But my friend said the town over that has full time...takes like 3 years to get in because you gotta have certificates as EMT, haz-mat and loads of other ****. Im gonna give it a shot but, during the next couple years ill be volunteer EMT

Personally I would say fully paid, because you don't have to balance work/volunteer firefighting/Family/etc. but that's just me.
But if you have lots of free time, volunteering would be fine. Some departments put you through their own Academy anyways, if your going to go Paid FT.
