Hi yall I'm a rookie volunteer firefighter, and have just started firefighter training. The first call I had to go out on was a big grass and woods fire. Luckily the more experienced firefighters were there so I could watch how it was done. My husband is a Fire Captain and is a 22 year veteran with the same department. I joined the Harmony V.F.D a small Fire Department in N. East Texas. I am very proud to be part of the Fire Service.

As the other posts have said... Welcome! I think you'll find lots of good info and tons of great ideas here... and we'll always look forward to hearing your perspective. I've been out here in west Texas for 14 yrs and still learn from the forums. (So maybe you can teach an old dawg new tricks... )

Welcome. I think you chose an excellent field of volunteer work. As you probably know from your husband's experiences, people in the communities of North American cities and towns have a great deal of respect for VFFs. The people in our town(2000) help with fundraising for equipment and also donate their own free time to help our dept.
I'm sure you will have alot of trying experiences. But that's all part of the job. Enjoy the ride and stay safe.
