    Thank you for all of the great advice! I was blessed and fortunate enough to be given this great opportunity with Eloy Fire District. Its a small department halfway between Phoenix and Tucson on the I-10. So far everyone I have had the pleasure of meeting there has been very helpful.

    Wolverine-

    1. Start with the 60 minutes and see what you're captain says from there. (You'll probably end up with about 30 minutes with Caps feedback.)

    3. During this period of time, you won't generally be asked your opinion on anything unless you're being set up to get hammered! If its a serious situation, you'll know...Act accordingly.

    4. Early in the morning. Get a rhythm about how early is good by starting at 6 and working outward based on when the others generally get up. This also means in the kitchen and around the station...sit down last...get up and get in the suds first. In fact, don't sit down anywhere outside a meal until everyone is lights out unless you're studying. Make sure its facing away or in another common room away from any TV.

    7. This is a saying about what goes on around a fire station between the other guys and you...Alot of times they'll test your mettle by giving you a hard time regularly...If they know something gets to you, expect to hear it ALOT. Don't worry though...If they're giving you a hard time (and you're taking it well), it generally means they like you and you're gonna do great.

    Side note: If something on a call bothers you (bad run...EMS horror show type thing, close call in a fire, etc...), get through the call and do your job. Then when you get back and have a bit of time to think about how you're doing, decide if you need some help from your captain. If you've got a good captain, they'll likely pick it up before you say anything. That would be normal, especially if you haven't seen much. Above all here, keep your head, have courage, and do the job first...People will now be counting on you for real.

    While you're in school, feel free to PM me here with any questions.

    Again...Well done.

    PaulC.

    Congrats, It has only been 10 months since I was in your exact spot. I am still on cloud 9, and don't think I'll ever come down. Where will you be serving?
