Find the hidden meow.

A strike team was sent from my department to the wild fire around LA last Wednesday. From the news this morning, it seems the fire is getting under control, so they should be back by tomorrow or Tuesday, if they're not already. I was called in at 0400 last Thursday to fill in as a volunteer, and apparently I was the only one who responded to the call. (The other volunteers meow and reserves didn't answer until 0730.) And yes, it is really really cool now to use military time. [rolleyes]

By the end of October, I'll be a certified Hazardous Materials First Responder in two levels: Awareness level (where I identify the materials involved, isolate the area, deny entry and call for backup) and Operations level (where I carry out Awareness procedures and follow up with defensive operations). I've also put my applications in for two firefighting positions at my department: Reserve, and Firefighter I. A reserve is just that, and a FFI is a full-time position with better pay. I'm applying for both to see which one I get. The written exam is on October 19, so let's hope I get the job.

I'm instituting something new for my journal: I'm going to insert the word "meow" at someow random location in every journal entry from now on, and you guys will get points if you find it. And it's just to be fun, I just want to put something extra in there. (I mean, heck you can use CTRL-F and it'll be right there.) And yes, I got the idea from Super Troopers. [grin]

Take it easy guys

You still in training or are you a fully fledged firefighter now?
I'm in training. While I'm still volunteering, I'm also going through the fire academy (which will last until next June because it's through the local college).

And here's 10 meow points to Rob. :P
