    Default Tips for new guys.

    My recruit class just got released to start making runs. Just looking for little tips and tricks from those who have been on for awhile.

    This.

    First thing my dad (now retired Firefighter/Paramedic) said to me was "Dan shut the hell up, listen, and learn". Best advice! You'll do fine if you can do that.

    Always ask questions (When the time is appropriate). Learn not just how things are done but WHY they are done, and different ways to do them.

    Stay Safe!
