    Listen more than you talk. Ask appropriate questions. Pay attention when you are training or having something explained to you. LEARN THE JOB. It is a never ending education. Don't be a smart aleck or an arrogant azz. Don't worry about things like a leather helmet, or buying your own whiz bang gadget or tool. Those things come later when you actually know what the job is about. Honestly, the 2 things to buy before a leather helmet, and only if your department doesn't issue them, is a quality pair of leather firefighting boots (I like Black Diamond) and a quality, good fitting, good dexterity, pair of firefighting gloves (I Iike Vanguard or ProTech).
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate
