What’s it like around the station as a rookie firefighter?

Life around the station as a rookie My typical day as a rookie starts off at 4:30 am waking up before the sun comes out. I rehearse my drill for the day prior to me leaving for work. I arrive at the gate of my station at 5:10 Am and open the gate, by 5:15 I enter the station and put up the 1st pot of coffee and proceed to the bathroom to change over into uniform, from there I go back to the kitchen put up the 2nd pot of coffee and proceed to the apparatus floor to get my PPE in line, from there I go to the front office where I check the journal to see yesterdays activities as well as check the “new material” folder and the roster for the day. Now its about 5:35 and I go put up the flag and gather the newspaper and return to the kitchen and spread out the newspaper in sections on the table. I then empty the dishes from the washer and proceed back to the apparatus floor to check inventory on all 4 apparatus (truck/engine/pump/RA). Now it’s around 6:15 and Members on my shift are arriving
