Top Issues Facing Responders:
getting enough people to volunteer their time to respond to calls
I was just looking for opinons on new upcoming Officers. How many years experience do you think they should have and what type of experience. My department allows you to run for a LT position as long as you have been off probation for a year.
well congrlats on the running GOOD JOB!!!As for me been pretty busy with med calls and a few brush fires.Its gettin to be that time of year the nights are getting cooler which mean woodburners and fire places which mean trouble since some dont bother to get them cleaned and checked first.Thinking about getting a boat eor all the rain where getting!Suppose to be around 6" or so now.
