Wanting to be a smoke eater
I'm completely new here, so I'll introduce myself. My name is Lauren, I'm 20 years old, and I'm slowly but surely starting the process to becoming a firefighter.
I've talked to many MANY volunteers, and they all say the same thing about Fire Fighter 1...."it's hard, but 'do-able'."
I've gotten alot of harsh feedback from some other female firefighters as well....I guess it's because I don't look the part (I'm not exactly build like a brick s#*thouse, BUT I'm far from a girly girl). I've wanted to do this for well over 5 years now, so I'm not giving up now that I'm finally getting started.
I just thought I'd ask you guys what you think it takes to make it through, and if you have any advice for a new 'buffalo' like myself.
