I'd say that whether or not a convicted felon should be allowed to become a firefighter, after he or she has served their sentence, depends on what crimes they committed. Firefighters interact with children a lot; so I'd say that no one who has been convicted of rape, or child-molestation (or attempted rape or child-molestation), should be allowed to become a firefighter.
America was built on the foundation of discrimination.
Who all thought Smokey was going to take off his head and be a hot woman. Lol

They can be firefighters. Not all systems have combined fire+EMT. There’s good reason to be skeptical of past criminal history for medics. There is a pile of strong narcotics sitting in ambulances and you have to trust the medics to not use or sell that.

There’s no profit in ex cons being legit. That’s all it boils down to. Pun intended.
So where supposed to teach the inmates how to stand on their feet after they served their time. But when they get out and find a new passion, the people in charge say, no no choose something else, you know something that doesn't involve helping others. Screw that non sense. Being a paramedic myself, first responders are short staffed. Let them work a job that not many are willing to do.
Surprising Chuck Norris has never been in a fight, only slaughters.
Let California burn , this is self inflicted. They made their bed, let them burn in it.
