    I do EVERYTHING, interior firefighting and all. Been doing it since June. I only have one month left as a Junior, too. I'm gonna miss it, but at the same time I'm ready for the opportunities to become a career FF in my area as well! Hopefully, I'll get hired right here in Waynesboro. Now don't get me wrong, volunteers are great, but I want to get paid to do what I love! Don't start career bashing either...

    As for fire ground ops we can do just about anything except go into a burning structre(except during training fires). We can do overhaul/salvage, exterior attack(master streams,2 1/2" lines), horizontal ventilation and help pump.Usually the probie explorers and FF explorers are at Rehab doing BP's, checking pulses and getting water.
    I DO THE SAME THING YOU DO. YOU GUYS ARE LUCKY YOU CAN OVERHAUL, I WICH WE COULD DO THAT!!!!! NOW EAT AND SLEEP THAT IS THE BEST.

    I have done just about everything at the fire house, some times more than the members of the department.

    Around the station we do truck checks during "Duty" time. as explorers the only thing we cant do on the truck checks is drive the truck, we check all the tools and other power equipment, we also run the pumps. any time we get a call we come up to the station, if there is room on the truck and it hasn't left yet we are allowed to get on the truck,if it already left of there is no more room we stay at the station for more man power just in case we get another call. on grass fires we are allowed to get on the nob and help put it out. we are not that limited the only things we can't do is go in to a burning building or have direct pt care.

    we can also ride in "open" jump seats

    As a junior firefighter in CT im 17 and the only things we cannot do is a tool job on an extricaiton,interior attack on a structure, and the CO alarms (hense the SCBA) and the worst of all ride in the jumpseats of the older apparatus. Im a LT. of the junior department basically second in command and once we are 18 and graduate high school we can become recruits and take FF1/FF2 all that good stuff.

    We help the fd with refilling SCBA's, cleaning engines when parade time comes around. we also clean the meeting room every sunday night, and we are free to attend monthly training. I also help train and teach fellow cadets, etc.

    Nothing - I would if I could. We are only allowed at the station for monthy meetings. They also freak out about us touching anything.

    i take out the trash

    I also check all the battery powered equipment on the trucks (portables, thermal imaging camera, CO monitor, Gas Detector,etc) and charge them when it comes to it.

    There are other small things too. God that Imaging Camera is cool Helped us find a person once.
