08/03/08 104 W - + 7 - 10 Discussing Rules For Probies

There's a good discussion going on Firefighter Hourly, on the subject of rules for probies. The context is a list of rules posted by the blogger, e.g. shut up, arrive early, grab a mop, etc. The comments discuss and debate the rules and the reasons behind them. One reader posted the FDNY probie rules. Another posted a compelling "contract of expectations" utilized by their department. The readers also present a range of challenges to probationary members and the fire service, from the "me generation" to the dwindling number of working fires faced by many departments.
