Engine 10

Comments: 0

I started Fire Officer II class yesterday. It was a C-Shift day, so I got to go while on duty. Yesterday was also my day on the Engine. I got back to the station around 5 and the engine had already run 6 calls. We ran an additional 7 calls, 4 being after midnight. I have to admit, it was a blast. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It is not easy going from never expecting a call, to running several in a day. I was driving the Engine and luckily all of the calls were familiar addresses. I don’t get out much to learn the territory, but I did live close to 10′s first due for 4 years. So all in all, it was a great time.

Yeah, I know, you guys are thinking “What the hell”. This guy runs 7 calls, pumps a little mulch fire and runs a couple of alarms, and he is jumping for joy. Well trust me, it was a great day. Now I am looking forward to 2 cycles of absolutely nothing, except for FO II class.
