    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    I would say that if you have to wait a year to be provided with a radio, I would wait. If your Chief wanted you to have a radio at this time, I'm sure it would be addressed. It sounds more like a policy thing, not anything personal against you.

    I completely agree with you on this topic. We have a junior firefighter group of about 8 kids and of those one has a pager and a radio. The radio doesn't have transmitting capability on our service channel but we do have a talk around channel that we use for training that he can talk to us on. They go to fires with us but are only allowed outside the hot zone and they help with changeing bottles and stuff of that nature. they do not go to anything on a highway or that invovles a car. They also do not go to any medical calls at all. there will be plenty of these type calls when you become of age. You need to focus on the fundamentals first and work your way up from there.
