It was good to see you too! I am proud of Steve and his accomplishments. He has a great future ahead of him. I had to make the trip to wish him well. Hope to see you in the future as well.
Stay safe Jerry

Hey thanks Chris. It was cool seeing you and Dave as well. Kinda funny, I recognized his voice before I looked at him. I guess the old guy isn't completely goofy...yet.

hey nice post on pass assisted maydays

How your company handles their turnover process.

This is mostly for the volunteer/combine departments, but any input is welcome. At my station here in College Park, MD the process of becoming an interior firemen is very intense as you have to have FF1, EMT-B, and go through our station in house training. The in house training is very demanding and is pretty much equivalent to FF1 and FF2 according to how we do things at our station. This process usually takes about 3 months over the summer, training every night. I am just looking to see what other companies out there are doing. Training is something that is imperative to success as a firemen and is taken very seriously here. What do you guys do? Or is it just FF1 and you are good to go?
Stay safe, Chris
