Seriously, I hope "they were out of pagers" was not the only reason you weren't issued a pager the first time you walked in the station. I'd like to think a new guy would at least have to show his face for a few weeks and learn his way around the trucks a bit, get a little orientation under his belt before being cleared to start running calls.Just got on with Sunnyvale Fire Rescue last night. Got my T-shirt and call # (but no pager yet, they were out of pagers).

Paincourtville Volunteer Fire Department
"I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

I'm thinking about heading up there early tonight just to "inventory" the ambulance and learn where things are kept. I was talking with a medic there and she recommended I do this because it really helps you when you need to get stuff ASAP.
I appreciate everyone's comments and advice! This thread has been a great help to me - and I plan to apply what I've learned while serving my community.
