Fire departments love trades- were you the guy cleaning the floor or were you working with an actual trade?
I'd take a guy who understood how a house was built over some guy who did 3 calls a year with some department in the boondocks and drank on every training night in the hall training orifice.
And for the love of god don't list everything. I don't care if you mowed lawns when you were 15 or were president of the chess club. List the stuff pertinent to the job and I would be putting some time in upgrading your medical qualifications- first aid / CPR / EMR (or whatever it's called where you are)
