    Post 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

    Thanks,

    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
