Will stretching my ears affect my chances of becoming a firefighter?

or most people know them as "gauges". I really want to be a firefighter, but I also want my ears stretched. Just wondering :)

Nope,an old bud from high school, I run into 3 or 4 times a year is a firefighter in NY and has had them since the 90s. As long as it doesn't interfere with the job it's up to you-there are things / rules that apply for safety reasons but he's still got them stretched

You're welcome, folks think that it's about "how it looks" that's BS. As long as it doesn't interfere you're good to go--anybody that runs into burning buildings can wear 1 of those plate lip things for all I care

Decide which you want more and which will allow you a better life. Put off the ears until you know about the job.
