Firefighter Brittany SchultzWhat is your station and shift assignment? 
I am assigned to Station 5 (Cottage Grove Road) on the 'C' shift. 

What attracted you to this career?  
I personally lost my apartment to a fire a few years back and that was really what sparked my interest in this career path. I was shocked at how quick the firefighters responded and were able to step in on one of our worst days. You always hear about these stories, but you never think it will happen to you. 

What advice do you have for someone hoping to join the MFD as a firefighter/EMT?  
This career really just requires you to be a genuinely nice person. As long as you are willing to step in and help on someone’s worst day, accomplish any task around the station or city, and do so with a positive attitude, then the rest of the skills in this career can be taught!  

Anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
I have two Siberian Huskies named Ruben and Balto!
