Hi everyone!

So for those who have been around for the past year or so will remember that I conducted ​a survey asking full time firefighters and above the following questions:

  1. What is your role in the fire department?
  2. What personality traits do you like in a probationary firefighter?
  3. What type of background do you prefer from new recruits?
  4. If you had to start all over, what is one thing you would do to better prepare for a career as a firefighter?
  5. In 1 sentence or less, what piece of advice would you give a new recruit?​

We had a total of 39 full time firefighters and above answer the survey! (Thank you)

Here is the survey breakdown:

I've been wanting to post this for awhile now but kept putting it off and at one point completely forgot about it but here it is, finally!

So what I would like to do is every week for the next 4 weeks is post 10 survey answers. Since this week is the first week and we don't have exactly 40 answers, I will post the first 9 answers. On the 5th week, I will be posting a wrap up with all the statistics ​and takeaways of this survey.

So let's get right to it! Here are the first 9 survey answers! Enjoy!
