Think about the typical injury patterns paramedics experience and go from there. Back injuries, shoulder/rotator cuff injuries, hip/knee injuries. For the most part all of them are joint injuries of some form or another. Now consider what exercises you can do to strengthen the muscles supporting all of those vulnerable joints. If you work to strengthen your back/core, back injuries are less likely to plague you etc.

Focus on strength training that will enhance joint stability and form when performing lifts. Cardio can be whatever you choose as long as it brings your heart rate up for a decent length of time.
