    Yelling is only an issue if you cannot follow orders. Understand that the fire/rescue service is a paramilitary organization. For this to work there has to be rank. Listen to your officers and you wont get yelled at.

    As far as school, expect to study a lot. As cliche as it sounds, be the best you can. Make yourself invaluable.

    Expect to keep your ears open and your mouth closed.

    That was the best advice I saw on here when I first joined the forum and started reading old threads.

    Your life and the lives of others will depend on your physical fitness one day. Don't wait for that day to arrive. Show your drive by getting in the shape of your life and stay that way.
