Hello. Need some help my department is tring to get a Junior Firefighters Asso. started and I need some helpon this. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. Just a few do they responed with emergency lights, responed to calls after midnight, responed to calls in POV's are do they go to station first This is just few things I'm having some issues with.
I dont know how yall do it where your from. I'm 17 years old and all our departments have junior programs but we're not little kids running around not knowing what to do. I am certified through the MS fire academy in Search and Rescue, Truck operations, Extrication, and fire tactics. I am also an EMT-Basic, and first responder. I do not like to be classified as a "junior fighter". I know what to do when I arrive at a call. Everyone at our department goes through a 90 day probationary period where we cannot run lights on our POVs. Now i have lights on my truck and am allowed to run them to a call or to the station. I understand this job is not a game, but I take my job as a volunteer very seriously.
