I have to agree with everything that has been said. I'm not sure services prefer applicants from one college over the other, but as was mentioned, if you know where you want to work when you graduate, than do whatever you can to find a college that will allow you to do your rideouts in that service ...

Online Petition

Hey Everyone, Lets help our brothers and sisters out in Frontenac County by signing their online petition. County council has voted to eliminate one ambulance from an already over worked fleet. It only takes a second. https://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/county-of-frontenac-stop-the-ambulance-cuts...
