    Talking HELLO! from NH

    Hello,
    Well, Im not really sure how this works, but Im willing to try it out. I was told by some friends that this was a great place to meet and talk with others in the business from all over the US.

    So to start I guess, Im on a fire department in southern NH. We are a pay by call department and have about 25 firefighters, a paramedic, and about 10 EMS. OOH and our newest group/members our 8 explorers. Were a pretty good size group. We have three houses spread over the town. Each housing atleast two pieces of apperatus.

    Im twenty-two, and on my fifth year of service with the department. I love every minute of it. Lately we've been a little slow though. Good for the community, not good for my pay check. Hopefully in the next year or so Ill be full time somewhere in the area. Thats the goal and all.

    Well gotta go.

    Don't remember names, but one guy used to be on Tynsboro MA. FD. Two other guys (I think they were brothers) drove a tiny tan car with a lightbar on the roof and flame seat covers.

    I took level 1 somewheres else, but I started recuit school in the beginning of Level 2 and it was fun. There were only 2 females (including myself). It's a little hard, because most of the recruits work for the cities (concord, manch). But I learned sooo much. Make sure you know your knots before you do level 2.

    Hi
    Good luck at keene.
    Were in central NH?

    thanks for the advise on the knots been trying to brush up on all that lately w/ the dept.
    Yah and find that its either just me or one other female when I take most classes. But I havent run into any trouble with it. I can't wait hard work but alot of fun is just what I like. Im sure the full time guys have a ton to teach that you would never think of and have some great stories of learning experiences.
