Learn your trade, execute task when given them. Don't be afraid to ask questions, when in doubt. Don't act like a jackass.

There are many things you can do to become a good fire fighter. The first is to remain quiet and learn from those that have more experience than you. Too many times now I have young eager guys join our fire department and tell me how to do my job or even better, when someone asks me a question during training someone elso answers it even though they have no idea what the answer is. Train, train, train. You should be able to identify every tool in every compartment of all you apparatus without operning the compartment door. Always look for new techniques. Don't forget to polish the nuts and bolts as well. Remember there are those that talk about the Brotherhood, and there are those the live the philosophy of the Brotherhood. You will find that those that talk about it don'y live it. Put everything you have into the Brotherhood and you will naturally reap the benefits.

Hey Josh, it works!

My (unsolicited) advice: Learn as much as you can. Take as many classes as you can possibly fit into you schedule. Don't overlook your family and personal relationships, though. Treat everyone fairly and equally, be honest, keep your cool in tight situations. People will respect you and you'll have earned the promotions you get. Keep watching, keep learning, ask questions. Did I mention "keep learning?" Delete Comment
