    Default Yeah

    I get what you guys are saying but i was hoping for something motivating for us to yell. Something about strength or overcoming fear, you know along those lines. I ahve been looking online and not really found anything i really liked. I figured that you all might have some sayings or something that could help. Thanks in advance.

    A lot of guys can come up with something. But there has got to be a saying or slogan that defines the legacy of your class. I graduated from the NYS Fire Academy in June. We were the 55th Recruit Class. We were known as the "Double Nickels". Our PT instructor was past military and is a CO in a Shock Concentration Camp so we had lots of stuff to yell out.

    When I went through a CC Academy last year, we had several military guys to help us with this. Our cadence during running was something like this:

    FA! (FA! echo)
    13! (echo)
    Mighty mean! (echo)
    Mighty lean! (echo)
    Hoorah! (echo)
    Hoorah! (echo)


    I know that's no where near original, or if what you're looking for..

    If you're looking for more of an inspiration quote type thing..check out Edward F Crocker, the Chief of FDNY back in the early 1900's. He had several great quotes, one of which is on my wall...



    "I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a Fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear
    to be a lowly one; but those who know the work which a Fireman has to do believe his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save... lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice."

    Perfect.

    And if that one doesn't work, pick up any fire catalog and flip to the t-shirt section. Plenty of inspirational stuff there.

    Chief, I just completed a CC fire academy, which was part of my rookie school that I had to do for my new Department. What it was is the city use to run an academy when they hired. Some of the guys there that taught the academy for the city also work part time for the local CC and developed an academy through them. So anyone that needed their certifications could attend. So in my class there were new hires, volunteers from the county and then a few that were getting their certs in hopes of a job, cause the city has been known to hire one or two as needed from the academy. It is run like an academy, uniforms, rank structure, push-ups, etc. The only downfall is that not all the instructors were from the city so we didn't learn everything my depts way, which for us new hires was important, But from having come from another municipal dept it was a decent program and some well trained firefighters emerged from it. It was more than just a certification program, it was a fire academy, and I believe one of the first ones in my state. Plus it saves the city money. Of course.
