My 20 year old son was diagnosed with T1 at age 9. In the last several months, he's wanted to make a big change and go to school for EMT and Fire Science. We just found out, per NFPA Article 1582, section 6.18.1 that having Diabetes mellitus and being insulin dependent disqualifies him from meeting the requirements to become a firefighter, and not being able to obtain a CDL might hinder his chance at being an EMT. Does anyone know anything different? We're devastated. We thought he was limited to not flying commercial airliners and not being able to serve in the military. :frown: Thank you.
