Best Answer

Most cities now require that fireman be both a paramedic and certified as at least firefighter level 1 just to get hired. It depends on the location. Check with your local department or city hall.
Most fire fighters have a high school diploma; however, the completion of community college courses or, in some cases, an associate's degree, in fire science may improve an applicant's chances for a job. A number of colleges and universities offer courses leading to 2-year or 4-year degrees in fire engineering or fire science. In recent years, an increasing proportion of new fire fighters have had some education after high school.
