Where firefighters come to talk training

I make my big move to the east coast this Friday. I am really excited, but at the same time nervous to venture out of what I call "Home". I am moving to Prince Georges County, MD. Specifically as a "live-in" Firefighter/EMT with the Laurel Vol. Rescue Squad Company 49. It was a decision I decided to make a few months ago. I wanted to gain to experience and saw my chance. They run a Rescue-Engine, Squad, Ambulance and a Dive unit mostly volunteer. They run about 6,000 calls out of one station. I want to learn about the part of the job that we see more often which is "Rescue". It should be an exciting and memorable time in my life!

I set out Friday afternoon on my 750 mile, 12 hour drive on the I-80 turnpike. I am stopping in the Lancaster area of PA to ride with my buddies fire company for a day (Eden Station 24, Lancaster County) before finally making it to PG County to my NEW HOME!

Fellow brothers I hope the best of this opportunity and look forward to learning from the experience. If anyone is in the area please lemme know... maybe we can meet up!

KTF that things will go smoothly and that you remember to just lay low and learn and not worry about fitting in. The FNG is always the one that get's picked on but it is usually out of love and remember that it will not always be you. Absorb all you can and be the first to do whatever needs to be done and do it with PRIDE!

Satay Safe and have a good trip.

Maybe if you're there for awhile I will make it over that way. Lot's of good peoples there to improve your personal and firefighting skills.
