for the most part we do that, i hate wasting time.  But we have a few individuals who no matter what have two modes, stop and slow.  then here lately we have not been having good turnout for drills period. which in-turn inhibits me from doing bigger drills.

my chief swears by starting training on time. He gets irritated if we are fooling around when its time to start. It's been ingrained in our heads as officers not to waste peoples time for training. It is also encouraged for the officers to be there earlier than the troops (volunteer dept.)  I am a stickler for having some sort of plan for training so we aren't sitting there at 1830 arguing about what we are trying to do. We train every Thursday night and usually field 20-25 people (approximately 18-20 interior personnel on an average night) We make a point to actually leave the station and go out somewhere rather than hanging around the station shooting the breeze. If there is organization to your training, people will keep coming back because they  feel like their time is well spent when they are at the firehouse.
