As a relative new comer to Firehouse Forums and Career Firefighting, I am interested in hearing the advice, humorous or otherwise, you have for a newbie/probie. Based on the content of the threads I have read in the past, there is alot of it out there. To start it out, my buddy sent me these:
1. Yes Sir, No Sir, Can Do Sir
2. Never Be Lazy
3. Study Hard, Learn Everything
Wedgies are your friend.

Advice, or other...Don't talk unless it improves the silence.
Life without danger is a waste of oxygen.

If you're given a job or a nickname or anything else that gets under your skin then NEVER NEVER let them know or you will have to hear it for the next 25-35 years.
But most important.....use your common sense on this job.
