    2.) do they usually have a keg at the firehouse and is there a limit on how much I can use it?

    3.) do I have to go on all calls or can I only on real calls when there is an actual fire?

    4.) the county uses a trunked system, can i get a scanner so I can listen or will they give me a radio. Or will i have to buy my own radio?
    You will be issued....

    1; A bell and a Johnny Ranger flashlight for your tricycle

    2; A lifetime supply of root beer flavored lolipops

    3; Instead of responding to calls you are required to watch fireman sam and other similiar life and fire safety videos.

    4;You will be issued a genuine GI Joe walkie talkie set with the bonus super spy decoder ring

    Absolutely. I recommend two light bars on the roof, front and rear. In addition headliner light bars can be mounted on the front/rear windows giving you a total of 4 lightbars. That takes care of front and rear visibility, you will still need additional lighting for the sides. You should have at least two sirens, they only work one way so you need front and rear.

    Yes there's always multiple kegs, beer and food is a major portion of most VFFs budgets. I'm not sure I understand the second part of your question regarding "limits" of keg use though. You use the keg until its empty. Then tap the next one.

    You only go on the "real" calls. And by real I mean you only go on the auto alarms and EMS runs. If you hear anything about smoke showing all you have to do is just pretend like your pager is broken and explain how much it sucks you missed the "big one". You don't want to actually go when there's a fire, that stuff is hot and can be dangerous!

    You should be issued a digital pager, voice pager, two-way radio, car scanner, and home/base scanner.


    I hope that helps....


    Couple of Points........ Some of the perks in Squirrelin......Sorry , Volunteering, vary from place to place. Here, we generally don't have a bunch of kegs around. Instead, we purchase Jack Daniels at Wholesale Prices, with the Savings trickling down to the Members.........(Literally). Also, Common Practice where people have plenty of Money is to give each Member a Portable Radio so they can always stay in touch. This is really a great way to go, since it eliminates the need to contact a Dispatcher by Phone. Instead you can call the IC directly at the Fire Scene to see if you're needed....... Last, Many folks overdo it when it comes to lightbars. I would offer a better way that saves you money, Increases available light propagation, and at the same time saves wear on your Honda Civic's Electrical Syatem. Go to any Auto/Truck parts dealer and purchase from 8 to 12 Automotive Exterior Mirrors. The Mounting Brackets that come with the Mirrors are capable of being mounted almost anywhere, so place them at Random Spacing on the Roof of the Car, and focus the light beams from only one light Bar to cover any direction around your vehicle........

    Good Luck, let us know how it works out...........

    There's no way in hell this guy is for real.

    I wonder if our ex-resident troll is back with a new username, and he thought this would stir things up without letting on that it was him.
