Well, I didn't fall asleep..

Real short night, about an hour, just paperwork and introductions.. It's gonna be at least 5 classes before I can respond to calls but we will be meeting twice a week so that will go quick. In the mean time I can respond to the firehouse and at least sign in with my kid.. I'm no longer chomping at the bit, starting the process feels a bunch better,

Oh yeah, I got a key and an invite to the Christmas party next week

Just a bump to see if there are any more Brothers and Sisters out there on the forum.

Just wanted to thank all firefighters for your very dangerous work and being their for us! Here's a video, approx. 9 minutes long, I uploaded to YouTube.com that you can use for your training.....I think it will be very self explaining......I took it from across the street in my neighborhood.....at the end, I pull the scene back to where I was standing so you can visualize how far I was away but that I was very apprehensive during this incident....a golf cart on fire and how they were going about putting it out.....as I mentioned, it should be a good training film for new firefighters.....thanks again!!

FIRE THAT DESTROYED A NEIGHBOR'S GOLF CART IN THE STREET

Thanks for posting. There's things my dept. would do different for that, but hindsight is always 20/20. You never know how it will go until you get there.
