Well... tomorrow's the day I have my state practicals and exam for FF1 certification. It's been a long road for me (and my family) that began in August. It seems long but the sheer volume of information and training was concentrated. We could've spent a month easily on any of the areas we covered. That's why ongoing learning is always going to be a part of me and should be for every firefighter out there. To keep not only themselves save but also their team and communities.
We had some ups and downs as a team but came together. We learned, sweated, laughed and crammed our heads with as much knowledge as humanly possible. So on this day just before testing I'm feeling confident. Casually reviewing my study notes, tying my knots and flipping through my workbook.
Here we go!
