Where firefighters come to talk training

30& Club... Wanna Join? Pay your Dues

This article is being posted, with permission from the author Jake Rixner

In everyone's career, things are said or done that make the "light bulb turn on".  This article was one of the things that I read early in my career that had a tremendous impact on me.  Immediately after reading it, I knew I had to be a member of the 30% Club, that a 30 percenter was the type of fireman I wanted to be.  Though I 've had this article tucked away for a long time, now seems like a great time to talk about some good 'ol hard-nosed firefighting... enjoy!
