    Congratulations! I've never been a firefighter, but I know what it's like to work hard toward something and finally get it. I got some advice a long time ago that has paid off in every new job: ask questions, listen to answers, and never act like you have nothing to learn. I'm sure you'll do great and again, congrats!

    It's crazy to come back and read this after being on the job for five years. Thanks again
