So, I quit my job to fully pursue firefighting. Alex, has been so encouraging during this firefighter journey. I may have quit the firefighter pursuit a while ago if it hadn't been for her support. For the next few months, Alex will be bringing in the bacon, while I am in school. My vacation has come to an end, tomorrow, July 19th I will start the Desoto Fire Academy. I have been pursuing firefighting for the past couple of years and it has turned out to be a lot more competitive career to jump into than I originally had thought. I have been unsuccessful getting hired on with several departments the past couple of years, so I have been attempting to make myself more hirable. In March I completed my EMT-Basic course, which all firefighters have to be, and now I have enrolled into a fire academy, to become a certified firefighter. This program will end in November and we will see how it helps getting me onto a fire department.
I will keep fellow bloggers posted on the new journey.
