  • Hello Everyone

    Hello everyone, I thought I would take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Matt and I am currently signed up for my upcoming local fire academy night class beginning in February as I currently work full time. I have recently volunteered to help out however I could at one of the busiest local stations and was able to ride along on their rescue unit for a couple of days to get a better feel for the career and culture which confirmed this career as a good fit for me.

    The fire service has always interested me and I feel it is a very satisfying field that always provides opportunity to learn new things and skills while helping those in need. In the meantime of waiting for the academy to start I have been learning all I can find about firefighting and EMT work along with preparing for the physical abilities test in January which is slightly different the CPAT but the same concept (I may have a few questions about some details and preparations for this that I will create a separate topic in the correct location for).

    Once the storm blows through Florida and things settle down I am going to take the advice of the academy secretary and attempt to find a local "sponsor" station that has a lower call volume to help me with the physical aspects of the academy, as the secretary said finding a sponsor station is a great way to stay motivated and in shape before and during the academy as well as refine any skills I have issues with.

    Anyways it is great to be here and I look forward to interacting with all of you.

    ​​​​​​​-Matt
