    Default First "real" Structure Fire

    OK, so I have been hanging around the forums awhile, and I`ve been through FF1/2, and just got off probation at the Volunteer FD, and today...it finally paid off, a fire that was all in the attic/roof and man it was awesome! All the academy training paid off, and I learedn alot from it too...Now, i KNOW I am hooked.....

    Congrats Young Man.

    Sounds like it went well. May the rest of them be safe too.

    Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

    Congrats on your first worker...

    Now just wait until the first time you get toned out and, as you're responding hear either

    "...We have a large glow in the sky..."

    OR

    "...All units responding, we're getting numerous phone calls on this..."

    And of course the classic

    "...Be advised, per a member on scene, this WILL be a working fire!"
    ...South of the James...By Invitation Only!

    yeah, just just imagine how awesome it will be when your first in the door with the nozzle. that will cure you of any woosie outside truckie ideas
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!
