MENTORING PROGRAM FOR NEW HIRES
I AM LOOKING FOR INFORMATION FROM ANY FIRE DEPARTMENT WHO HAS A MENTORING PROGRAM FOR NEW FIREFIGHTERS. WE ARE GOING TO START A PROGRAM HERE AND I DO NOT WANT TO REINVENT THE WHEEL IF I DO NOT HAVE TO. THANK YOU.

1. A new hire or a new firefighter is commonly referred to as a proby...short for probationary firefighter. A proby is someone who has completed initial training but is still not quite a real fireman yet, they should never forget that and should take advantage of every opportunity to learn.
2. Every probie has a "mentor" - his company officer! The officer should never let a proby out of his sight, he is responsible for his proby even more so than the rest of the crew. The officer should show his proby the way, take advantage of every opportunity to teach and not hesitate to hang a foot in the proby's *** if he screws up.
3. Are you guys really just starting this???
