    Default welcome and congrats.

    I used to be on JCFPD and Knob Noster FD (1998 - 2003). I moved from there and now work in columbia Mo as a FF / Paramedic. Those guys in Warrensburg are great guys and can teach you alot. Keep your head down and listen to what the senior guys tell you. You will have a lot of fun.. Congrats and tell the guys hi for me.

    Thanks guys! Got geared up and everything went smooth! We had 2 roll overs so far today, haven't been able to make it out on either and I probably won't until I get some training. But, I'm loving everything so far! =)
    Stay safe,

    sorry to jump in, I can't start a new thread for some reason. I was looking for info on how Columbia Fire does its hiring practices. I'm all done with everything and I thought it kind of weird that they don't have an eligibilty list. Any info would be great.

    Anyone coming to Fire school? Stop by the Murphy's Fire & Rescue booth and say Hi. We will be having hospitality Friday night at the Holiday in express. We also will have an American LaFrance Demo pumper outside, please check it out.

    Can't post a new thread for some reason???

    Are you talking about the thing down in Columbia? It sounds like quite a few guys from our station are going. I won't be there because I didn't know about it until recently and I must work.
    Being a newbie, I was wondering what tools I should get. All I have right now is your bunker gear basics. I don't have time to search the forums for this info as I have lots of school work and an assignment due at 4.
    Thanks in advance,
    Tim

    I'm heading out early enough in the morning that I can partake in as much of the equipment expo as possible. Hopfully the snow won't keep me from making the early grant workshop, but I'm having my doubts. As it is I'd likely have to leave at 0800, which is earlier than I care to (I'd like to sleep past 0700 one time this year).

    I'll make sure I stop by your booth and have a looksy.

    Pancho--You'll find all kinds of topics on here about what to carry. Right now I keep lineman pliers, wire cutters (upgrading to cable cutters), a pair of mechanics gloves (rescue gloves work too, something to roll/load hose after a call and use on car wrecks), and a phillips and flat screwdriver. Several guys cut out the screwdrivers and lineman pliers with a leatherman.

    I've heard conflicting stories....we are supposedly testing sometime this.

    I also heard they are going to run another class off this list.

    No word exactly when either are supposed to happen.

    Alright, I'm looking to buy some doo-dads for firefighting. All I have is the essentials. I'm looking at getting a couple flashlights, maybe a belt, gloves, and anything else you guys might recommend. What is a good place to buy from and what do you recommend getting?
    Thanks,
    Tim
