To belong to such a brotherhood is incredibly rewarding.

Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil, that true love never dies. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in.

Riding on all the apparatus is a good learning experience. Diversification is key when younger. As you age and attain more knowledge you can better serve your dept. by specializing in a few disciplines. You will have a good solid foundation then maybe start instrcting.. or just being a great practicianer. USAR work is an awesome field always expanding with modern equipment. Vehicle rescue is also a specialty with the latest generation of cutters/spreaders/rams. We use Holmatro. I still like the big 42" Hurst spreaders just the same

Over my 37 years I have found my place in the Haz mat world now.. but still a truckie. I wear the red hat but believe me I still go in and do it. I am basically a glorified fire fighter.. that's all. I live for and love to work. as my dad told me and I have heard from several others, you go to a job you love and you will never have to go to work.

One little tip...I know they are for waiters but try this on for size. Never stop going to school. If there is a class take it. If you have to travel.. partner up share the expenses and get everything you can. Your resume will be your meal ticket. Make them not be able to be without you.

good luck

Well, when i was 18 I vollie'd in Michigan (wildfire, first responder, started emt) but lost sponsership with the local fire departmnet when i got a careless driving in my personal car (off roading on private land). It was 7 years ago and i changed my "stripes" to blue, brown, and black lol (don't ask and I won't tell).

Still help if they need a 4X4, or wildfire "knowledgeable Citizen" (and my dad is a national fire officer III)

Been doing it for 4 years.

I currently work on an Industrial department, Local I-088. Hamilton Sundstrand Emergency Services. 16 Firefighter/ EMT's, 4 Captains, 1 Chief. If anyone has any questions about the Industrial aspect, I'll answer what I can.

On the outside I volunteer as well in Suffield, CT.

Oh, and whatever you do, do it humbly. I can't stand the whackers in this job.
