well depends on what department you wanna join... most paids want atleast an emt basic some want an emt cardiac and there even some like fdny the just want a certified first responder.also it wouldn't hurt to get an asociates or bacholars degree in fire scienc eor some fire class. also get as many certifications as possibel like firefighter 1001 and 1002. you really don't need anything every thing should be taught to you at the academy
