    I had to deal with some of the same stuff. All the officers of my old department were tailboard firemen with my dad. I grew up with a bunch of their kids and many of them were on with me. I spent a bunch of days in classes listening to "old timers" with stories about this fire and that wreck type stuff with my dad. Also got some of that " I can't believe this, I remember you climbing around on the trucks in your diapers" and" My god I feel old". Type stuff.

    Then when I got hired on with my career dept. I was a rookie all over again.

    No but when I was a kid I had firefighter lessons in my country because military service is mandatory and they were preparing us for careers. But I don't remember much of it.

    I did 5 years as a f/t firemedic in a smaller town before moving to the city to go ems exclusively. I love it, I miss it. I haven't found a volunteer agency that suits my needs here. Most are not pushing career level training to volunteers and the safety level is uh, non-existent. End goal is PA school, and ems exclusively in a biiiig system (we do in a week what our city did back home all year) looks a lot better on the grad school apps. Can't wait til I'm done and can find a volunteer or small p/t to continue with.

    Keep training and stay safe!! Once you're hooked it will never leave your blood..

    I started in my local VFD when I was in High School at 16. When I moved away to college I got on the VFD there, then when I settled here I joined this VFD. I leave for awhile now and then but I always come back. On a hiatus right now, moving in the summer, but I have already talked to the FD about joining. By the way # 8, personal fave.

    I worked for eight years as a medic for a fire dept in Colorado. When I moved to NC, I was looking for something different. So I became a cop. The work isn't as physical (most of the time), but I don't get paid to sleep, either.

    You'd be hard pressed to ever find me at a fire without a halligan. Even as a driver. I am still a "truckie" after all. Ladder 4 Cheauffer.
