    Hi! I am a resident firefighter with a county fire district in Washington. I have been volunteering for a couple of years, so I still have a lot to learn. I am 'addicted' to firefighting and EMS, I wouldn't want to do anything else! I would love to hear from some of you.

    P.S. Any of you interested in Jeeps? (CJ's)???

    I have been an EMT for 6 years, working mostly with Search and Rescue and in the Emergency Room. I was just recruited to volunteer with a small rural fire dept. in our town. They have provided me with all the gear, etc., but I'm wondering... where should I start with training. As far as EMS is concerned, I'm okay, but if they put a hose in my hands, I think I'll be pretty lost. I love Emergency work, but don't want to look stupid when they say turn on the H2O.
    Looking forward to comments. Kitty

    Kitty,

    Welcome! Your new department should have some sort of training for you. Each department is different, some train in-house, some will send you to a recruit academy. The first department I was with (in Colorado) held the recruit class at the station, and the department I am with now sent us to a region recruit school.
    Everything may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but before you know it, you'll be teaching someone else.
    Some people prefer one of either fire or EMS, but I love both, I wouldn't want to do just one of them.
    There is always something new to learn. Like I said, I am still fairly "green", but if you have any questions, I'd be glad to help.
    Be safe,
    tigger

    Hi and welcome aboard.

    As has been stated already, this is a very good site for catching up on relevant information and meeting new friends from all over the world.

    The site can be very addictive and 'er in doors' keeps moaning about the amount of time that I spend here. Good job I can access the site from work, much better.

    One thing about 'Mr Fire', you will never know it all. There is so much to study.

    The main points to remember - How he moves in those mysterious ways, that he changes environments in seconds, what his favorite foods are and the speed that he travels.

    There is also the fire prevention side - how to make life difficult for 'Mr Fire' and the investigation side - tracking down his footprints. Treat him like a wild animal, with great respect, and you won't get your butt bitten.

    Kindest regards & keep safe,

    Default Nice to meet you...

    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to take a minute and say hello. I am a new member on this forum, and have found it very informative.

    I am in the middle of a change from one job to another. I have spent the last 11 years as a police officer, and as of December 1st, I will be transfering to my local fire department as a FF/EMT. This has been a long decision making process, but in the end, I think I will be rewarded by making the switch.

    I hope to enhance my skills at paramedic school after completing my basic firefighting training. I look forward to the challenges, and the opportunity to use the teamwork, and people skills I have developed, with my new department.

    Feel free to say hello.

    Default Newbie Checking In...

    Hey all,

    New guy checking in here. I signed up a long time ago, but just started looking at the forums here recently. I'm a former paid-on-call firefighter from Woodbury, MN. I did a stint as a lieutenant but spent most of my time as an engineer. Currently I work for Waterous as a service & training tech for all of our pumps and foam systems.

    I imagine I'll hang out in the vehicle operations & engineers section around here for the most part, so if you have any pump or foam system questions don't be afraid to throw 'em at me!
    Just a guy...
