    Hey all, I had my interview today for the Lieutenant position after a year wait. Per the business administrator I should get promoted either next Wednesday or Thursday the latest along with 4 other guys.
    If this happens as he said I am going back on the line with my old tour & out of fire prevention. which is a mixed feeling, I like them both and will have to get use to the 24 hour shifts again, as well as being in charge of either an engine, truck or squad company (some times all 3 at once).

    Also decided to get 2 new Tattoo's, 1 to cover my ex's initals & 1 because I wanted it for a while. I am enclosing pictures of them, in case anyone wants to see them.

    By the way this promotion should allow me alot more time here, till I get a part time job when the economy improves (hopefully for everyone it will be soon).

    Thanks again everyone for the congrats. I got promoted Tuesday morning & am just getting off my 1st day working a 24 hr shift in 5 years.
    Started off interesting, was acting captain in my old station & 1st call was a working house fire and we were the 1st due engine. Couldn't have asked for a better start to my new position :D
    Had 2 smaller ones afterwards too, I won't say what my new nick name is here :lmao:

    Again thanks all.

    OK - I won't ask. :D But it definitely sounds like the start to the new position could not have been a better one. :)

    Several years back, I attended a "Citizens Fire Academy" here (OKC) - it was a 10 week course - one week per night. One of the best things I have ever done!!

    For the most part it was a classroom setting, with different departments/stations giving presentations re: various aspects of the Fire Service. (The Arson/Fire Investigation was my favorite!) But we also got to repel down the fire training tower, ride up in one of the buckets, man a firehose, and spend a Saturday at a firehouse, including riding along on any calls that came in. It was a fantastically cool learning experience - and a great mix of people in the class - young to not-so-young. If it sounds appealing and your local fire department offers something similar, I would highly recommend it. I believe the concept is to give taxpayers a better understanding of all the aspects of what the tax dollars are used for by the department. :) :)

    One of our local police departments does a similar thing - I haven't done it yet, but would like to. However I'm not sure if you get to ride along on shoot-outs. :D
