I became an EMT-basic in 1989. Four years later in '93 I became a Paramedic. I have been in EMS now for (Holy Sun Dials Batman!, I had to do the math) 21 years.
A year after becoming a Paramedic, I was hired by the Fire Department and obviously became a fireman.
Today, I was notified by my Chief to prepare to attend the Police Academy. I've already finished the Fire Investigator course for the Texas Fire Commission. Looks like I may be on the way to being and Arson Investigator.
Of course, things can still derail this train and so I keep my excitement down as much as I can.
The Chief did say to plan around attending though.
