Joey, your question is an old one for most of us. However, if you want to know then do as you did and ask. Probably be better for you to ask the questions of your fellow Juniors or explorers though. Good luck with your plans to get into the fire service.
Well welcome to the family.. You are like a child still in the womb. You will either love it or hate it there is no in between. And being a diabetic is definatly a challange in this profession my advice(I too am a diabetic) keep it in check always make sure your brothers and sisters know about it and that way they can know what to watch for fire will affect your levels and the more people that know the better. You hiding it is putting your life and theirs in danger. I have two on my dept that are diabetic as well and they do not take care of themselves. And I REFUSE to go in with them. Just cuz they dont care about their life doesnt mean I dont care about mine. Good Luck sweet heart
