      Gift idea: A money gift in honor of his Recruit Class donated to your local Burn Foundation. A gift that could help him or any one of his new brothers out there...

        I can't tell you the last time I got a steak, much less a BJ.

          If you buy a Pierce rig, they will at least treat you to a steak.

            True story- I know of a truck committee that went out for final inspection. The salesman and Pierce wanted to take them to that place and send copius amounts of alcohol through their systems prior to the final inspection the following morning (Pierce's usual motus operandi but thats another story for another time.....) They refused any alcohol (Department policy they are not allowed to drink while on company time or funds.....) The Pierce folks were dismayed.....Next morning started the inspection and 9 hours later had a punchlist of several hundred items long, including wrong drive axles and drive shaft.

            Moral of the story: When the P man offers you alcohol the night before your final, it's not because he is being sociable.

              How about a slide pole, even if you have a one story house

                  Is the stripper included in the cost?

                            I know there are allot of ideas thrown out there but when I graduated the academy my parents and my brother got me two different Streamlight flashlights. To me this has been one of the most useful and life saving tools a Firefighter can ever own. When I went though my second academy for the FDNY that was one of the big points the instructors made to always have a good light.

                            Here is what I got and love. I will never buy any other light than Streamlight ever again because of there customer service. I have givin my lights a good beating on the fire ground and any problems they have fixed or replaced the parts no question asked.

                              This is just a fire academy? Save your money for when he finishes drill school after he gets hired.

                                Semantics. I'd just about bet that what you call drill school, the OP's department calls academy...
