    Default Just got hired!!

    Just about 25 days ago I had an interview with my local Vol. Fire Dept. and 2 weeks ago I did the physical ability test - and passed. Last week I took the physical exam, and passed that too. So now I'm hired and will start training with the department at the end of January - I can't wait!! I just completed FF I & II so most of the training will be repetitive, but it will be a great refresher. I start my EMT training next week too. I worked hard to prepare for the interview and the physical abitlity test and I'm glad it all paid off. Besides keeping my mouth shut and eyes open, does anyone have any other advise for me?

    What department are you about to get on, it sounds like the exact same process I'm going through right now.
