  • I was a volunteer EMT/Paramedic as well as a FIrefighter at one time.. I think it is just trying to see if you can handle the stress and emotional ups and downs of the job. It will probably test your nerves and your emotions.. anxiety levels, etc... Trust me, this is one career that being "manic" would be perfect for. Truly, lots of people in this field turn to pills or alcohol to handle what you see... you burn out quickly. I was in the field for about a total of 10 years, and I finally retired.. I look back at the things I did and wonder, why?? I could never do it again.
