home again. It’ll take a month to de-condition myself after such an intense week. I miss my boys ( and girl ), theres so much will come out of this, hopefully i’ll get time to work on it all, i’ll be looking into further modules & qualifications which is sommat none of us have ever done. squillions of training i’ll need to do here locally. Its really cool for me to feel like part of the ‘real’ fire & rescue service, we’re always felt that retaineds ( part time ) were very seperate from the big clever proffessional whole timers. I’ve never trained with whole timers before, & have been at some incidents in the past where they’ve certainly treated us like the village idiots. But actually considering these guys have been to many thousand incidents to our couple of hundred, and that theyve had years more training, have tonnes more equipment & resources, get paid six times as much, considering these things, we highlanders did pretty damn well actually. we ROCK !
