A new suit...

Tonight, Thomas and I joined the local volunteer fire department.  I have a duffle and a backpack stocked with yellow pants and jacket, a helmet and goggles, a head lame, a hood, and a "baked potato cave" (a foil flame resistant "bag" you roll into if you have to protect yourself from a fire).  The gear is for wild land fires, and we will be suited up for everything else in due time.  We brought home a radio, and I got assigned a call sign. 
 
There is so much to learn, I know, but it will be great to learn and to be able to help.  My brother David and Pop are going to be driving firetrucks in the Fourth of July parade through Cimarron, so I might ride with one of them.  We'll see....
