The future of employment in emergency services is excellent. There is a nationwide shortage of firefighters and paramedics. As the population in the United States continues to grow, and the “baby boomers” get older, there will be a greater demand on emergency services and EMS in particular.

The City of Houston alone has a large number of firefighters who will be retiring in the next few years, and all have to be replaced with new employees. HFD alone anticipates hiring 1500 new firefighters in the next 5 years.
