  • Career Announcement

    I started a new job on January 11th. I am the Assistant Chief of Training for the Verona Fire Department in Wisconsin. It is a 3/4 time job with a combination department that has career staff, paid on premise, and paid on call members.
    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

    Congratulations!
    ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

        Good deal.

        It sounded like you needed something to keep you busy.

        It looks like they have a fleet of Pierce's ..... I guess that makes you a Kool-Aid drinker now.

          Sounds like a great gig. Good Luck!

          That'a a fine looking firehouse. (Or is it a fire "station"?) Even nicer than most of the Long Island vollie houses I've seen.

            I did need something to keep me busy.

            Nope, still not a Kool-Aid drinker.

              It is quite the place. I call it a firehouse. They call it a fire station. Nicer than Long Island? I don't know about that. We don't have a Tiki bar, or a banquet hall, or even a hot tub!

                  Honestly, retiring as young as you can is the best move ever.

                      No hot tub? The conditions we are being forced to work under in this economy! Congratulations, a good training officer/chief can have a huge impact on a department.

                        True enough I suppose. They obviously built the place with growth in mind. 8 fire and 8 EMS bunk rooms, as well as a separate 3 bunks, day room and kitchen for interns.

                          Well, I guess we gave up the hot tub for the second story patio deck!

                          Thanks for the kind words.

                            Probably for the best .... I would hate to see Don in a Speedo.
