Explorer Firefighter seeking advice
I am 15 and Captain of my local Explorer division I really love the Fire service and want to make it my carrer. But our department gets very few calls and because if that I don't get to practice very much. When i turn 16 next year I am going after my FF2 and I would like any advice you have

Stick with it! Read and train, read and train, read and train. And by "train" I don't mean walk through the motions, I mean bust your behind, just as if it were the real thing.
Learn all the jobs, at some point you'll have to do them

Thanks BVFD. I've been geting my hands on any and all books I can. Thanks again for the advice.
