I have been a volunteer fire fighter/EMT for fifteen years. Love the station I am at and I even get along with a majority of the career fire fighters. I say that since there are very few volunteers at my station, and at this moment I think I am the last "running" volunteer. My issue is that the volunteer corporation (name witheld so I won't embarrass them) has decided to sell my volunteer station. They say that I can come ride with them but most of them do not even know who I am.
They have never given me the opportunity to recruit new people and even when I have one possible good lead, they convince the person to ride at their station.
Maybe I am just being wimpy about it but I've never felt welcome at the other station even though the career fire fighter know who I am, where I live and even call me by my first name.
