    Firehouse Forums Community,


    Hello everyone! I just thought I'd introduce myself and tell you a bit about how I got on Firehouse Forums in the first place. For starters, I'm from Mid-Michigan, I am a fire photographer, and I was an Explorer for the department next to where I live now for roughly two years before being forced to resign due to moving cities. I have always had a passion in Fire/EMS and I am actually going to my local high school's fire academy next year to get my Firefighter I/II and whatnot. As of now, my current city's department doesn't have an Explorer program, however, I intend on getting one started so I can get back into it. As for how I got onto the Firehouse Forums website, I was looking for different tips and advice from people that have gone through the academy or have some "words of wisdom" when it comes to the fire service. I guess this really sums it all up for now. Thank you guys for letting me become a part of this great community!


    Stay safe,


    Explorer Clark

        Sounds good

        If a career in FD is your goal, you are on the right track.

        Apply yourself

        Stay out of any trouble,,,,,, Including parking tickets

        Start working out weights and running/ breathing

        If you are a swimmer, good for getting in shape

        Find a couple of mentors that will guide you

        Would leave the explorer alone,,, till you get hired

          It's nice to see someone have a clear purpose at a young age. I'm wondering .. Will the average grades at high school affect training as a firefighter? Do I need to work with tutors as I prepare to enter a regular university or college? Or you can study only the necessary subjects and give others to WriteMyAssignment.com. I know that many colleges and universities have high competition for admission.
