you must understand where everything is on the truck, mature enough to handle yourself on scene and complete enough trainings to know what your place is on scene and what to do to help out

-Pass Probationary Test

If your new don't expect to get to ride right when you join. You have to earn it through showing up to all meetings that you can attended. Don't make up Bulls**t because you don't fill like coming. If you can't attend because of school, family, or you are sick I understand. But when you only show up to Live burns, mock disaster, or fun stuff, that makes me mad. Hopefully I didn't scare you but thats just my personal felling's.

When I was a Jr, I didn't have any real requirements to ride. It's really rather sad now that I look back at it, but that's how it was. Thankfully they have changed things now which is good.If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

I would love to just show up to all the fun stuff. But I know that I'm going to have to deal with ems calls, someone setting off the automatic fire alarm, or locking them selfs out of the house.
P.S. DO NOT give me your keys they will end up in one of the following situations:
1. Down the garbage disposal.
2. In the trash.
3. Locking myself out of the house.
4. Locking the keys in the trunk.
All of these thing I've done. Let's just say I have issues with keys.
