Thanks for making me feel old, Dale! I have a 16 year old son. He wants to be a carpenter though. Anyway, you've got the right attitude. No matter how much you know, we can always learn more. The Fire Service is all about learning and then improving what you know. How old do you have to be there in Ohio before you're no longer a Junior? Stay safe!
well dale I'm not as old as Brian, but I've got toddlers and I remember when I was your age and watching my dad do the fire thing, seems like yesterday I was counting the ding's on the home alarm as dad got ready and I'd tell him where he had to go, I'm sure you dont have a clue what I mean by ding alarm but Brian probably does, anyways welcome aboard:)

If you are from the Bainbridge Twp in Geauga county, I assume so, then sit back and absorb. There is a wealth of knowledge on your department and those guys will be more than willing to pass it on. I personally know a lot of, if not most of that department. I also work with them in mutual aid on our full time departments. Good guys, lots of knowledge. That being said, you don't know as much as you think. You are there to learn. Learn as much as you can.
