Shoot for the Moon

2020-01-28T21:15:40+00:00

Shoot for the Moon We all have dreams. It is what keeps us moving forward. Dreams get us out of bed in the morning. Some dreams are attainable. Some are not. But, we still dream. Here is a situation where I was asked to give my opinion. Captain Bob- I've been offered a position to pitch with the minors.  It doesn't pay much, and I don't know if I'm good enough to make it to the majors.  My dilemma is I've also been offered a fire job. What do I do? This was my reply: Since I was a kid, I had a [...]

It’s An Early Christmas!

2020-03-07T01:03:29+00:00

It's An Early Christmas! I told Nick that in our experience, this meeting was going to include a job offer conditional on passing the medical.  It was exciting news. This was an emotional time. Not only did Nick get this e-mail on his birthday, but he was driving home for Thanksgiving the next day. That very next week, Nick was with the other candidates in the lobby when they called his name first. As it turned out, my prediction was correct. This was a job offer pending the medical.  I told Nick they probably called him first because he was [...]

Not Your Momma’s Oral

2020-03-07T00:38:25+00:00

Not Your Momma’s Oral Sometimes, you will hear folks talk about how easy it was in the '70s to get hired as a firefighter. Back then, people got hired right off the street. There was no test. It was just a handshake. You see, fire departments in the late '60s and early '70s earned incentives for hiring guys coming back from Vietnam. Those guys now have 30 years in service, and they are ready to retire. They are prepared to pass the torch. Here is the reality. There isn't a department in any state that isn't looking at several firefighters [...]

Using Capt Bob’s program I was called back for the chiefs oral. I ended up #2 on the list and now proudly wear the badge for Denver. I would not have been in this position if it wasn’t for “Captain Bob’s” program.

“I tested for 10 years taking 73 tests. My next oral was in two weeks. I wanted to figure out what the heck I was doing wrong… with Captain Bob’s program and coaching, I was shocked to see I had ranked number one and got my badge.”
