    Exclamation Welcome

    First of all, welcome to the forums and also welcome to the fire service. As an explorer you will learn the basics of both the firematic and medical fields while gaining both physical and mental training. Please note though, that while you are now a part of the fire service, the road to becoming a volunteer is a long yet rewarding process and the road to being a line officer is an even longer process. Please don't get ahead of yourself but take the time to open your mind and ears and gain as much knowledge as possible to help your career in the fire service.

    Again, Welcome and Good Luck Brother

    Congrats, show up do what you need to do and asdk all kinds of questions. Don't let you fd actions ruin you schooling though. I allways say the fd will still be there when you're done with school. Read from some of the BONEHEADS that have been on here running their yappers acting like know it alls and smart asses in this section. Don't ever act that way! Learn from their mistakes.

    Don't think that becoming an officer will be as soon as you become a ff. All of this takes time and alot of training. Good luck to you.

    If no one else has said it clearly! Eyes and ears open!!! MOUTH SHUT. unless you have a smart question or an object is about to fall on her head.

    but yah... try to learn as much as you can. ask questions that are relevant.
    Hope I did not sound rude or mean just looking out for you.

    Hope you have fun and welcome to the Explorer community! (and juniors and cadets and all the other branches of our little world in the fire community).

    Welcome to the gang Kid. All I can tell you is try and make everything you do, good or bad, a learning experiance and take something away from it. Listen to what the Senior guys tell you, as in my eyes experiance is probably the best thing to learn from. Best of luck to you and enjoy!

    Welcome man, and it looks like everyone has already given the advice, so I won't repeat it.

    Let us know if you have any questions, they'll get answered.

    Thumbs up Good for you

    It is good to see the young generation wanting to follow in their parents footsteps. I did follow in my fathers and uncles. Now I am a safety officer in upstate New York
