My uncles used to take me to the stations all the time. But NOW..Time's getting closer...I have 3 yrs to go. I am very active down the firehouse..Cleaning Trucks...the station.Helping out at fundraisers and stuff. and I love it! I am also learning ALOT at the station. But anyway..These 3 yrs are gonna go by fast and I hope my kids will keep the tradition going in the family.Be safe Heres a picture of my "Future Station"

    Well I guess you could say that I'm a second generation ff. due to a cousin and an uncle. My brother-in-law is a true third generation. His grandfather was a chief and then his father was a ff at the dept I work for. This is my wifes brother and family. My sisters husband is a second generation as his uncle is a Lt. at our dept. (my sisters husband a I work for the same dept. on the same shift as does his uncle who is my Lt.) We also have two other family members that are other generation ffs. My wifes uncle and his son with whom I work with along with the above others. I hope that my son or daughter will want to follow in my footsteps cause they both love seeing "daddy" at the firehouse and always enjoy "daddy's fire trucks" Stay safe Jeff

    I suppose I can consider myself the second generation by way of my Mom's side of the family. My uncle is retired from the Flagstaff, Arizona Fire Department.

    Second gen. here. Dad started as firefighter and retired as chief 27 yrs. later. Ive been on the same dept for 16 yrs and we did get a chance to work together the last few years of his career, and that was great.
    My son hasnt decided yet and i will not press him. Its not the same as when I started.

    I just got some pretty good news... I've just been assigned where my Dad started, st#17. Like you LT trk106, I got to enjoy a few years working for my Dad before he retired as Chief. Starting mon the 14th I'll be orienting a new Lt at that station. I hope they let me stay... they run alot of fires on a regular basis. Just wanted to spread the good news. Thanks again for all of your responses. T.C./B.S.

    Hello from a second generation firefighter from Canada. My dad and I are in the same dept together, him with 17 years of service and me with 3. I hope someday when I have children they will become volunteers too. It is very rewarding and it takes a very special person to do the job.
    Keep up the good work & stay safe.

    I'm a 3rd generation in a way. My great uncle had passed the bug on to my father. However, my father "retired" when he was young. That was before I was even thought of. I joined a vol. department on my own and will never regret it. And an intresting side note I have 2 cousins (my fahters blood nephew's) who are also fire fighters. It has to be in the blood or something.

    I am a second generation firefighter. My dad was a volunteer for about 15 years, since then he had retired from answering the calls. I am in my 8th going into my 9th year as a volunteer. He was a captain in the department and so am I now, my 3rd year. I was always interested in the field, everytime his pager would go off I had always raced him to the door hoping he would take me to the firehouse to watch them leave and prayed i could go to. As I was getting involved with fire service he was leaving it. When i joined a new company I am in now, I tried getting him back into it, it didn't work. Currently Im trying to make this my career that I've always dreamed of. It is very interesting to read these about everyone coming into this profession.

    Right now I am 4th generation, with all seven in my dad's family running actively. Most of them currently hold positions from Chief on down through the administration. My younger brother just joined and there are two more wanting and waiting to join. We are carring on the tradition of running in the same fire house for another generation.

    I am a second generation firefighter. My dad is still a career ladderman in Logansport, IN. Fire Dept, (32 years)and I volunteer with North Star VFD, AK. the military brought me up here. This is my second dept, I was a volunteer with Gore Hill VFD just outsde Great Falls, MT. for over 5 years. My wife's dad was a career ff in Huntington Beach, CA area back in the 60's, stories about running in LA during the Watts Riots almost unreal. He got out of that and went on to ministering for the Salvation Army where he volunteered in Coos Bay/North Bend OR for a while when they lived there. We don't have any children yet, but I would hope to continue a tradition, however if it doesn't workout o'well.

    Be Safe!

    i did it *** backwards, but, have it straight now. I joined the volunteers first and then after a year my father joined. undoubtly, some of the best times we ever had together, outside of golf. my 18 year old son has been an EMT for two years and just joined me in the volunteer fire department. i just hope he enjoys it as much as i do.

    Yeah, I guess I did it bass ackwards too!
    My older brother and I took the test together but I got appointed first Then he came on a couple years later. He drives the ladder truck on my group and is the cook.I was his boss.
    Then my Nephew came on and is now a lieutenant in the same department.
    It's fun working together but it can get complicated too!

    Good Luck and be careful out there,EXJAKE:-)

    My dad was with the same departnent as I am for 60 years. I've with them for 33 years. We both held the rank of Chief for a number of years. I hope that my son and daughters will also "take up te gauntlet" and become part of the firefighting family.

    I'm a true 4th generation Boston firefighter. My Greatgrandfather started out in 1912. My grandfather in 1944 along with an Uncle, my Dad started in 1969, and is still an active member. I was appointed to the Boston fire dept in 1998. As far as i know I am the only true 4th generation firefighter Bosotn has on the active roster, I do not count my uncle as a generation. I only count Father's.

    BFD1071 HATS OFF TO YOU! I don't think anyone will disagree that that is some kind of heritage. Keep the faith, Brother.
