    Yes, you willl usually get a few welcomes. We love you young newbies. We see the future in your hands so protect it please. Remember it is not often that rewarding and thank you's can be kind of slim, but glory seekers are often disillusioned. With time an overwhelming sense of responsibility takes over.

    Learn that there is lots more than just responding and pulling a shift. Remember your volunteer brothers as well. They are required to attain the same certifications, face the same events and hold down a full time job. Their free time is firefighting and EMS duties. Remember that when you are on your free time.

    Be of character 'above reproach' and participate here often.
