Check out Roll Call Forum and put some info about your Fire House in... Like to hear what your station is like, what you have as well as for number for firefighters as well as number of calls. Pass it around to your Firefighter Friends too....

Buddy your right, one thing no one likes is change.
Unless it's a new truck, but then again we are so in love with the old one that we don't want to give it up. But we all have to remember the days when we first got on and how horny we where for that first call. Although there is some difference now from then, I know some of the older guys who said they where given a pager and gear and told your a firefighter. It's no longer the boys club now, there is a lot more training and safety put in behind all of it. Not everything is taught out of a book, your right on that part that it take years of doing. We all judge the new guy, and forget sometimes what the new guy must feel like walking into the family. But we hope that maybe one of the older guys grabs the new guy before the black sheep of the family gets to him first.

just remember it takes time not just training makes a good firefighter. And Most old timers have trained thou the years and have seen a lot that is not taught in the class room. Yes some old timers may doubt what a younger firefighter can do. But they have done the real thing an proven them selfs. And sometime it is hard for them to look at new ways to do things. They go with what has worked in the pass. Just remember one day you will be the old timer. Just hang in there, and be safe.

Like your comment about Old Timers, it's something else with the difference of opinion on what an Old timer and a Newbee are. Times have changed and one thing people do not like is change. As a trainer it's a bitch to convert the old guys to the new ways....
