Congrats, but like DFurtman said, make sure to listen to what the experienced guys tell you and dont be scared to ask something. Asking questions shows you want to learn."If it was easy, someone else would of done it already." - Lt. Ray McCormack FDNY

The following is part of our new member orientation....good words to remember....
Once accepted as a member, you are a part of the Company. You are allowed use of the building and encouraged to bring friends and family to visit and share your interest. We have simple rules and expect everyone to act like adults. Treat the firehouse as you would your own home. If itís messy, donít be afraid to clean it. If you break it, donít be afraid to let someone know itís broke Ė most times we can fix it.
We have been around for 125+ years. There is a lot of pride in the fire company. We put forth effort to keep that pride and keep it something to be proud of. We ask members to conduct themselves accordingly in the public. Members may purchase and wear fire company clothing, we even encourage that. But we ask they do it with honor. We do not tolerate members making us look bad in the public eye.
We are a ďbrotherhoodĒ and will watch out for each other, help each other, console each other, and yes even risk our lives for each other. We respect each other and work to have others respect us back. We can bust each others chops mercilessly, and 5 minutes later be helping them build their house. We look to be strong members of our community and have the firehouse be a strong force."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?
