How long are the people on your fire department considered rookies?
The reason I am asking is because I have a been a firefighter for a year now I have completely class been to all but maybe one meeting. I have done the extra unrequired trainings and been on ever call I was available for even the three am fire alarms where no one else shows up. However in March we had two men join they are friends of the chief's and know the other officers. Neither has any training however they are being allowed to be on nozzle on the hose line at fires both training and others. Also, they are fighting grass fires while at the same time I am being told that as a rookie I can't do that. I can not find anywhere in our Guildlines or SOPs anything that says how long we are suppose to be a rookie. Does anyone have any idea I can except to be a rookie?
