    Smile Hey

    My name is Becka and I'm from NC. I'm currently a probie at my station. I love my job! Although on scene I don't get to do a lot right now, I learn a lot by just watching. My dad has been a firefighter for over 30 years! So I got to ride along with him when I was little.

    Welcome Becka, to the best job in the world. When you're sitting in the firehouse waiting for a run, do your own training. If you have senior FFs that will help you, ask them to run you through some drills. Then talk to your officer and ask them if they might let you get some time doing stuff on scene, even if it's just some minor tasks. Check into your local FOOLS chapter. It's usually quite cheap to join and they often do some pretty good training once a month or so. Also, a great way to bond in the brother-/sister-hood.

    I'm currently going to classes for my ff1 and when I'm at the station I have people go over the trucks with me and when I'm not doing that I'm talking about stuff. When I go on calls, I get to help with hose, oil dry, and directing traffic. It depends on the type of call and how many people are on scene. When I have questions, I often ask my dad since I have access to him 24/7
