    Default February '08 Recruit Class

    Anyone else going to the February class? I just found out I'm going. Any info would be great from people who have been there/are there.

    I can't give you specific info on Connecticut's academy. I have been through two others and found the hard work was well worth it in the end. You'll meet people from all over the state and some of these classmates will be friends for a lifetime. Pay attention, work hard, you'll be fine.

    I was in class 39 we had 2 volly's in there by the time class was over one was offered a job. What a good time. Lots of hard work running and studying. I had a good time and learned alot. Instructors are first class up there you can tell they really care about teaching and not just presenting material and testing you on it. You will have a good time and make many friends.

    Whatever Bohan was at the academy, he's been a nice black cloud since he showed up on the line.

    Three months on the line and we've caught 4 or 5 good jobs on our shift.

    I hope Newington VOLUNTEER Fire Department isn't paying 5 grand to send you. That would be a huge waste of money.

    I think puting yourself through the academy is a great idea. It will make you more marketable in the job market. It is as simple as you are cheaper to hire!
    IAFF member, Love this job! Remember the oath!

    I believe you are going to the hartford county Fire 1 not the recruit class. NVFD does not take place in recruit classes. What company are you a member of?

    I'm with Co. 1 but I am going to the recruit fire at the fire academy. On my own dollar though.
