New to firefighting. Ohio!
Hi everyone, the name is Derek.
I am new to this in every way.
I am going to be training to be a 36 hour firefighter starting this weekend.
I have signed a contract for a year with the dept for volunteering there.
Biggest problem is my response time.
I am the farthest out from the station by 6-14 mins depending on traffic and stoplights.
If you guys have any tips, pointers, recommendations or anything I would appreciate it.
Also if you know what would be good to equip on a 2001 dodge durango, where the best deals are to get the equipment as well.
I work for min. wage and only make about $500 a month at the moment and anyway to find the best way to get it would be nice.
Thank you for reading this!
