    Default Newbie but loooking good still

    Hey all. I'm Jason, a recently Firefighter One by the State of Colorado. I'm new here and I'm really close, I hope and I feel, to getting onto my first Volunteer Fire Department!

    I'm nineteen and Firefighting runs in the family. My Dad is a Honorary Retired Firefighter from PA, my cousin currently a Firefighter in PA, and I'm the newest Firefighter of the family. Don't worry, we got nurses, techs, and cops in our family too; make for interesting medical discussions when I get back to PA.

    This is what I currently have in training and certifications for the Fire Service:

    -5 1/2 months as a cadet in an internship with a Fire Department

    -Completed Fire Academy (4th highest grade, even beat my Squad Leader!)

    -Firefighter One certification by the State of Colorado

    -Haz-Mat Awareness certification by the State of Colorado

    -Completed S-130/190 Wildland Firefighter (just have to Pact Test)

    -Certification of Achievement (award from Fire Academy for hard-work)

    -AED/CPR Certified (need to re-certify)


    Well, I hope to be able to talk with other Firefighters, EMS workers, and Rescue workers here. And I'll give any advice to anyone just starting into the Fire Service in training or looking at it (it helps to get the view from someone who just been through it/going through it).

    I hope to talk to you all soon!

    -Jason

    Thumbs up you sound pretty talented for someone so young

    hey jason i'm danielle. You seem like you have alot going for you and your willing to go all the way. I'm from Delaware. and i'm new to the firefighting buisness. I volunteer for a small town called gumboro, i'm also a junior member and the youngest girl in the fire company. I've gone to fire school in dover and have taken and graduated from basic firefighting, vehicle rescue, haz-mat, and structual firefighting. i realized this is something i want to do . But i also want to take emt classes and then go to ocean city Maryland and become a paramedic. Most people say i can't do it because i'mma girl and i'm small.. i'm 5'2 ..100lbs.. but i can do anything i put my mind too and i defiantly have my mind on this. well its nice to meet another junior member thats ambitious and if you have any advice i'd really like to hear it ...thank you

    You can do anything you want, as long as you have the heart to do it.
