Riley recommends the following next steps:
A firefighter/paramedic will have diverse works days making each day different and typically not the Monday through Friday daytime work hours. The comradery among the people you work with is like no other. Your firefighting background can lead to a variety of careers not typically thought of - fire inspection, fire and life safety education, related insurance jobs and education/training.. Additional areas such as wildland firefighting are of interest to some because of the outdoor nature of the work. Whichever firefighting role you choose, good physical fitness is important and provides you with life skills and experience that can be applied to other careers.
