Certified as a firefighter in the state of Minnesota. I just received my completion card and patches for my fireman's jacket in the mail on Friday.

Was it tough keeping up with the men? We're you taken seriously?

Thank you!

For the most part I was taken seriously. My buddy had a hard time accepting watching me lift things because he's trained to be old school and women shouldn't be doing that kind of labor when there are fine, strapping men right there, but most departments around here have had or presently have a woman on the department so many of the men at least have seen a woman firefighter before.

And, in fact, I believe I was the only person from the class who passed all segments of the testing the first time with no retakes.

Very cool. That's definitely something to be proud of. I'm jealous you get to be so close to so much eye candy lol

Eye candy. lol

I do like a man in uniform, but they're just guys around here. Nobody is looking like the firemen on tv. :)
