Research it well. Visit you local fire station, talk to the firefighters and question them ... they are generally very willing to help interested persons.

The training is excellent and will prepare you well for what will be expected of you. To "fit-in" you have got to be a team player, there's really no room for those who aren't. Who wants to work along someone for 25-30 years who only thinks of themself ? Your life may someday depend on them.

Do not consider this job if you are afraid of heights or confined spaces or squemish, in this job people will literally die in your arms; it's something you must give thought to. Having said all that ... the job is very safisfying

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
