    Quick question what does the psych involve? What kind of questions do they ask? Any drawing involved?

    When did you take it? As far as I know it's been a long time since you had to draw something. I didn't have to.

Im in the mentorship program, and my mentor is a good guy, not saying anything negative about him, but he prefers to text, and usually when I try to call him, we wind up playing phone tag.. he rarely answers, and when he returns my phone call, im at work where my phone is not permitted.

    I was reading the chapter about ropes and knots yesterday, and I can't really learn a great deal about a rope or tying different knots from the book and its cheap diagrams lol.

    Anyone in the same position as me or do a lot of you guys have a fire fighter backround in terms of friends/family on job?

    In school/college I was always a good student and had good grades, so im not a dumb guy.
    Keep reading...memorize the details about the ropes, LSR, search rope.....(lengths, width, inspection times) know that stuff. They will teach you how to tie the knots. I was just like you...absolutely no ff background prior to last July and I got through and went to a great house. Study every night no matter how tired you are. Make note cards right off the bat and carry them with you everywhere. The rock is rough because the job is demanding. Keep focused the entire time you are there. Pay attention to detail because that could be the difference between life and death for you 5 months from now. They call the rock Disneyland because everything is controlled...your first day otj will be the real deal. Take it from me..day 2 I was 2nd due for a 5 alarm. Reality comes quickly. Good luck and hope to see you guys make it through.

    I'm going Saturday man. I was wondering if anyone knows if we DEFINITELY need the medical form for the info session, or if we need it for the first actual session. I've heard mixed things.

    Just waiting on a few dudes from here so we can drive to the run at 5 together. I'm excited and nervous despite having run under 12 min many times. I could barely sleep last night and woke up a few times.

    Good luck to those running today!

    Once you've done the happy dance and called all relatives and friends, let us know how it went.

    Hey fellas!

    Passed the run!! Make sure you show up early on the 15th!! I doubt there will be as many as there were today but they split us into two groups and the later group had to wait for us to be done and then they started. I got to the lot around 5:50 and there were already 30-40 cars parked. Very happy to see everyone on time. I saw a group of 4 getting out of a car, figured it was probably some of you fellas.

    When we were upstairs waiting to get the job letter I was the third guy to go in. I felt bad for whoever was on the end of that line haha.

    Just clarifying, I got my manuals and just left. I didn't see anyone else walking to the parking lot though. Did you guys leave right after picking up your manuals?

    And about the 30 questions we need to type up. When he said write four answers, does he mean one correct answer and 3 incorrect ones? (like we're making up a test with answers A,B,C and D) or just answer 4 of your own 30 correctly? I didn't really understand that.
