Forum / Fire Service Noobie
I have been reading this forum for about a year now, and decided I would finally register and get involved instead of just reading.
I am 19, and reside in Rapid City, South Dakota. I have been a volunteer firefighter for nearly a year, and am with two departments.
I had attended an engineering college for a while, and decided that it was not for me, as my mind was always jumping to firefighting. Being that a station was across the street from my campus didn't help either
To cut a long story short, I'm now attending a tech school to obtain my degree in Fire Science.
I could bore you with a long drawn-out history of me, and where my interests come from, however, I will spare you. I'd love to get to know some of the members here, and in turn, will answer to the best of my ability any question you can throw at me.
Additionally; I am from South Dakota, any SD FF's on here?

Oh and also, are there any very good posts I should make sure to read? I've read a lot of stuff on the forum, but chances are good I missed something I should've read before I start asking questions.
Additionally, I'm looking to get an early jump start on my hiring process (pre-testing, practicing exams, physical workouts, etc) and was wondering if anyone has had any particularly good experiences with a particular preparation book, workout, etc.
Thanks again for the help
