no longer a probie-traditions?
I'd like some imput about what your depts do once a FF has completed his probationary period. Is it just another day at the firehouse or is there some sort of congrats/ceremony?
We have just recently implemented a new probie policy that gives the probies and ORANGE lid instead of a yellow one. Once he has satisfied the minimun training and time requirements he will receive a yellow lid and will lose the probie title. To just hand over a yellow lid without more recognition seems a little lame, we're wondering what else we could do to make this "a big deal" for our new FFs. Any ideas? What does your dept do?
