I am new to this whole thing. When I say new, I mean NEW. I have no credentials yet.... I have been hired on to a extremely small fire almost private fire dept. They have a large grant that they have to use so and a good share of that money will go for my training. There are currently only a few people on the dept right now and by the end of 2005 they are hoping to have 20 people. This department, mostly for political reasons, does not even have Mutual Aid with the neighboring fire dept. Anyway, I am looking forward to the training, and experience. Is there anything that I should know or any words of wisdom any of you veterans would care to share?
