Normal minus. Texas takes the cuffs off.
This is something that may help me along in the process. At least I've worked with vents & stuff before.
Little late seeing this, but I took the UF program. I think @VentMonkey and I can attest that it's simply a pick one of them (Creighton vs UF) and go for it if you wanna do a full course. Derek was a great teacherm
Hmmm.
Creighton looks like it wants 3 references and an essay. An essay isn't a huge deal but getting 3 people to write reference letters a week before Christmas might be unrealistic. Their admission deadline is Dec 21st.

UF doesn't seem to have those requirements. Their admission for Spring 2022 is open a bit longer.

UF is winning with the Wife Factor right now as well. Her reply was "Ooooh... we can go to the beach after your clinical days are finished."

District’s insurance is covering, their dumpster on their property which is pretty cool.

Yeah chief I don’t know how my suspension got messed up either. Oh and by the way they’re Kings.

It's a solid program and you get a **** ton of CE's from it. I've still got all my material from class and still reference it.

When the Chief calls and starts off congrats on being one of the only stations in our Battalion to have consistently maintained full staffing....

And finishes with that means one of us needs to go Long Term Relief at one of the others for the rest of this month and all of next (amd of course I'm the low guy on the totem pole in terms of time in at the station here...)

Today's duck hunt was a dud. The group got one duck. Still cool trying a new style of hunting though.

Have you tried this style yet?

Sorry I didn't get to our most recent spammer sooner, but DOT frowns on me playing on my phone while driving.

Ensuring that my son understands the importance of down time once he discovers the bell on his first Matchbox Firehouse set.

I did tell him “his guy’s” may end filing a complaint with their Matchbox union if they didn’t get adequate rest. He could care less.

Yep, officially ready to tackle a large municipality’s fire services.

Sounds like his opinion on rest is 12 hour shifts! 😅

Got a cozy blanket and a good book for Christmas, so I would say I made out pretty well on the presents front.

Probably the cutest moment at our celebration was when my sister brought in a container full of presents and my three y.o. nephew starting grabbing them out of the container and going up and handing them to people at random. 🤣🥰 So when it came to actual present handing-out time, he and his twin sister got to do the honors
