;What would be some of the the halachic issues of going in to a career of firefighting.for example what would be the halcha if you were required to work occasionally on shabbat, would it be considered pikuach nefesh?

It depends. If you are really considering this you should speak it over with a live rabbi.

What about being a police officer or a soldier in the army? Do either allow violating Shabbos (assuming the person would be joining voluntarily not drafted)?

Could someone voluntarily join the army, even if he wouldn't violate Shabbos, since he may be required to kill people as part of his service?
