  • It's official...

    I got the offical notification of my promotion today. My promotion becomes effective on Saturday, January 13th when I report for duty with Group 3 as Deputy Chief.

    Group 3 was the "band of brothers" I started with back in November of 1981, so it's a "homecoming" of sorts.

    I am looking forward to the challenge (and the increase in pay that comes with it! )

    The one thing I won't miss is doing the daily rosters, filling out the attendance cards, calling for fire details and most of all,, no more BS medicals at "oh m God it's early" hours!

        That's Fantastic!!!

        Congrats on the promotion!! So that means that you only go on the big ones then? 3rd alarms or bigger?

        Awesome, couldn't have picked a better man for the job!


        Does that mean I gotta have union representation now when I talk to you?

            Well, I didn't mean to make it quite THAT big. But it won't let me change it

                  Are we going to see a new forum member named DepGonzo with 1 post to his name?
