Joe Virnig is not your average Joe. When he graduated from the Fire Science Program in 2006, his first objective was to become a professional firefighter. He attended the highly regarded fire science school affiliated with the Spokane Fire Department. However, while there he changed directions and decided his interest were more in line with Paramedicine. At that time he enrolled in the Paramedic school in Pheonix, Arizona. Joe is currently an exemplary paramedic for Ballard Ambulance, and is currently testing to get hired as a full-time firefighter.
