    Requirements vary by State

    So you need to check with your State,

    You can find you find your state office of emergency Management at http://www.fema.gov/about/contact/statedr.shtm

    Training, education and other requirements for firefighters vary from state to state and from locality to locality. If you want to become a career firefighter, the bestthing to do is to contact the fire department's personnel office to find out what the employment requirements are.

    If you want to become a volunteer firefighter within your community, schedule an appointment with the Chief of the department or a designated officer to talk about the requirements. Additional information on the volunteer fire service may be found on the National Volunteer Fire Council's Web site.
