Thanks, I'm scramming because I have to apply for paramedic in the next 2 weeks.
Even after you get hired it would make a great part time gig.
Take some Technical Rescue courses, a few advanced first aid courses and ensure your volunteer hours are way up.
On top of that im sure your still honing your interview skills, and studying for the tests.
You really shouldn't have that mentality when it comes to education in emergency services. If you're interested in getting involved in the fire service, acknowledge that the majority of calls we do are medicals. I wouldn't want a guy on my crew who slummed through his EMS education JUST to get onto the floor then when I'm actually counting on him to assist me, he really doesn't want to and just received his education to get the piece of paper. Just my .02
As for a guy having to love medical response to get hired... more often than not it's an adjustment that occurs over time. Guys who shun it are quickly pushed aside by folks who didn't lie in their interview about wanting to help people.

When you say volunteer experience what do you mean? Volunteer fire? That's great but now get involved in coaching hockey, big brothers, or working with the homeless. Other than that, I'd say continue to be honest and reflect on who you are and how you present yourself in life and work on what you are as flaws.you have to be humble and honest with yourself for this.
What exactly do you not like about working with a person who has a desire to help others, while you both help them through an emergency while advocating for them and educating them in a time of need? Sounds pretty similar to fire and I'd be worried if you feel you couldn't handle ems for a short term (it is probably the best path to fire)
