New Volunteer- Many Questions
I was hired a a local volunteer fire department that runs about 250 calls per year. When I was hired, they did't explain their expectations of me. They gave me my gear and a pager. Everything else I have been having to figure out on my own. So far, the weekly training has been everyone standing around talking or working on the trucks. I'm all about taking the initiative and doing what needs to be done, but I am surprised that I am aloud to go to calls without any training. They seem more worried about getting everyone's help doing projects and fixing things around the station than training and practicing.
I joined this department to help people and to gain experience to help me someday being a career firefighter.
