Wow. I came here to check in first thing this morning and I’m feeling quite pumped up after reading everyone’s encouraging words. Thank you and thank you.
Did you have any other relevant experience when you applied for dispatcher your first year besides the classes you took? Who did you apply with? How much work did you get? Just a few questions if you don’t mind. Thanks for all you’re info. I’m going to try to get in as many classes as I can before late spring.
I had not considered an engine crew but will look into it. Don’t know much about that at this point. And yes, I should start working on some endurance training ASAP. Can I use the excuse that my life is really busy? No, I didn’t think so. I think the idea of a partner is great. That’s really the only way I would think I’d stick to it. I should be able to scratch someone up to sweat with me. There are always roller derby teammates willing to work out.
Thanks again everyone. It’s nice to find encouragement here when it’s way too early to tell any of my family and friends. And since none of them are involved in fire besides my boyfriend, I don’t think they’d get it.
