There really are no age limits (upper or lower). The younger hires tend to have a more difficult time during the academy - mostly due to maturity, attitude and life experience. That doesn't mean they shouldn't apply. They've had a few 20 year olds go through with no problem. But they've had a 19...
Good questions. CFD is a mix of BLS and ALS. All engines and ladders are BLS, however they have 5 ALS engines. Whether BLS or ALS they function as first responders only. They do not man EMS unless needed to drive to the hospital for a critical call. They do have a number of functioning medics...
The typical response from the City regarding the diff in pay is that EMT's are responsible for paying for and attend Medic school on their own time while being employed full time. This can be quite expensive and challenging so rather than paying for school directly, they are paid more in salary...
You most likely do, however if you've filed for reciprocity (Ohio accepts reciprocity through NREMT) you can show you've filed for it. You can email the hiring Sgt directly for complete answers on this one email@example.com

Yes it could be. Hopefully it will change with the passage of the tax levy and increasing from 18 to 25 units. It's all about reducing response times.
Here's the breakdown of 2015:

The long time medical director actually became an employee of the city before the RNC over the summer. He splits his time now between the ER and the city and is in the process of revamping the protocols. As for reality, they're pretty standard (iv, o2, monitor).
Keep in mind that the major of...
Cleveland is like any other inner city ems system, as you noted. The overall majority of those hired use it for the experience to get hired on a local fire department. The rest are lifers.
No reason to think it to be unstable, it's been around since 1975 as a third service and will not be...
