im fixing to start my mod 2 and npq 1 classes so im getting ready for the fun and hands on stuff maybe not too much lecturing and more burning lets get r done ive been waiting for this we will be using a propane burn building so its not a "real" red dragon but its close enough and if something goes wrong someone can shut off the source.

push ups! lots of upper body strenghtening workouts, probably do a bit of running and generaal exercising stuff. just stay in shape really--you are gonna want leg strength and lots of upperbody strength. try out some core workouts and cardio-vascular stuff too because breething is important too- the longer you can make your air last the better off you are.

fire girl i like your attitude i think tha we should all approach the fire service with that attitude that we have mire to learn i feel that it would save lives im off probation as well but i feel that i have much more to learn and i do know that i can teach a few of the guys some thngs as well

hi- i am a volunteer firefighter just going into my fourth year, and i still consider myself a probie- even though we have about 10 guys 'under' me. obviously, i have been taken off probation, and taken numerous trainings and classes, but i don't feel like the one whose been around forever, so for now- i'm still learning and i'm a probie.....
