To better organize all of this information you are going to be soon obtaining, I recommend getting a binder with some blank paper. This will be the storage location for the information that you obtain during your research. If you are extremely computer literate, then by all means feel free to develop a spread sheet or data base of some form or fashion. However, I prefer the binder because you can keep it with you at all times since it is portable. Future articles will go into other items that you can carry with you inside the binder to assist you with achieving your dream of becoming a firefighter!
Until next month, keep on believing in yourself and your abilities and don’t lose focus on your most important goal - becoming a full-time paid firefighter! There is a badge out there with your name on it. No one is going to hand it to you or lead you to it. It is up to you to go out there and find it. If you don’t, somebody else will!
