    Smile PWC, Here I Come! (Thank you CaptBob!)

    Well, it appears some cosmic brain fart has caused the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue in Virginia to decide they want to hire a knucklehead like me. (I suspect a little "Puff, Puff, Pass" must have been occuring while they were making this decision, but who am I to complain? ) I received "The Call" this morning and I now have 2 weeks to get everything in order and move down there. It'll be a little hectic but definitely well worth it. The recruit class starts on the 26th and they will have an orientation for recruits and their family on the Thursday beforehand which I thought was quite nice.

    This is so amazing and I can't wait for my first day of training (that is unless they run out of whatever they are on and come to their senses). Thank you guys for helping me realize that firefighting is where I want to be. And I want to especially thank CaptBob for his guidance on his website and on this forum. There is no way I would have had a chance of getting this job without it. Thank you very very much! Now I am blessed enough to be able to live the dream.

    Look sharp because...Where did you get that tag line? Glad
    you paid attention. (see below)

    As for Capt. Bob, I think he is on vacation now. Please
    forward your good words to him for he loves these stories
    and can issue you a success "badge number" from his
    program.

    Congrats and good luck. I know the feeling...Bou

    My passion is to see candidates who might be stuck get turned around and nail that badge. I get emotional every time a candidate gets their badge.
