Senior Firefighter Paramedic resume example with 9+ years of experience

(555) 432-1000,
, , 100 Montgomery St. 10th Floor

My name is Jessica Claire, I go by "Willie". I am 25 years old and have been involved in the fire department since I was 16 years old (career and volunteer). I would like to first thank you for the opportunity and consideration in my application for Camp Peary Fire Department. I began with Mathews County Volunteer Fire Department and then continued toward a career by getting my Paramedic Certification and applying for the Jessicasburg Fire Department. I have been working for the City of Jessicasburg for over 4 years. I have enjoyed my time working for the City of Jessicasburg and have learned a lot from my mentors and officers. I have worked to earn the position of Senior FF there and that has given me more responsibility and leadership in the department. I have completed multiple classes to gain certifications to help with career development as well as special skills. I am a member of the James City County/ Jessicasburg Technical Rescue Team. I think of myself as a proficient firefighter with advanced capabilities, but with the understanding that there is much more to learn in this career. I am looking toward a career at Camp Peary because I believe I can be an asset to the department as well as I look forward to continuing my education and experiences for a long and successful career. I appreciate the opportunity and look forward to hearing from you.
