Im new to firehouse and forums and wanted to say hi. I want to be a firefighter when im a bit older and I have a few questions about being one. Is there anything I can do to get in good enough shape for firefighting? Is highschool football a good way to do that, we lift and theres two a days. Also, im wondering if being a cadet or having a junior membership at a fire department will help me be any better of a firefighter.
