First Drill

Welp, my first official fire drill was lastnight.  What an experience that was!  I learn't a lot, and actually got to fight a car fire right off the bat.  I felt kind of like I was tossed into the scene, and was told to put it out quick, but there was very little instruction as to what I should be doing, whos on the hose,  whos grabbing the tools, etc...  So I just grabbed the hose and went.  One of the Officers was beside me showing me what to do once we started approaching.

All in all, it wasn't too bad, although I decided that my twice a week visits to the gym are going to be required for sure.  Towards the end of the attack, I was so exhausted from wrestling with the hose, that I was getting a little weak.  I didn't mind the sweating in the hot bunker gear.  Fact is, I could stand to loose a few pounds through sweat :)

All in all, I did learn a lot.  It was overall a very exciting and fun experience, and the guys are great.  Cant wait for next drill.
