Tallahassee, Fla (WTXL)---Firefighters save lives, not to mention millions of dollars a year in property damage. The career itself has grown seven percent in the last two years and if you've ever held on to those childhood dreams of being a firefighter, studies indicate now is the time to act.

Captain Mike Bellamy with the Tallahassee City Fire Department joined us this morning to discuss what it takes to make it with the Tallahassee Fire Department. 

Bellamy says it's best to get fit, volunteer, and enroll in the fire academy! To learn how to do so visit the Tallahassee Fire Department's website.
