Just had some questions regarding FDNY EMS. I'm currently looking to make a change in careers and am considering joining FDNY EMS. I have no intentions of becoming a fireman like most others, I would like to be a paramedic though. I am deciding whether to do 6 months of volunteer work after I get my EMT-B, and they apply to medic school, or perhaps apply directly to the FDNY as an EMT, and then apply to go for medic training once I'm in.
If there's anyone in FDNY EMS that is active or retired that could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
