You Never Get A Second Chance....

As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

My department recently merged with the larger regional department in the area. For most of us this is a great thing. We now have easier access to resources and training, have more job diversity and have more promotional ability.
A little while ago some of us were able to start the integration process by being stationed at some of our new department's busier stations. One firefighter was lucky enough to catch a working fire his first shift. Unfortunately, he threw up while working the fire. I'm not sure of the details. Hopefully he had just eaten a large meal or has been sick lately. As for now, there are a lot of people making the running joke that this firefighter is allergic to smoke and/or fire. It's all in good fun and, as my captain said, he'll live it down 15-20 years.

Welcome to the department.

The next 15-20 yrs...that right there is why I do my very best to not do something embarassing that would require calling the Fire Department. Poor hubby, he'd never live it down. LOL

I completely agree. I'm only calling the fire department if my house is fully engulfed in flames or if someone is dying.

Ahahahaha, how embarassing would that be?!! At that point I'd have to be waiting outside "heya guys! Who brought the marshmallows?"
