Don't show up empty handed

Contributed by: By Tony Vitalie

Most of you know if you are doing a ride along as part of your EMT class or pre-interview station visit that you never show up empty handed, but for those of you who work as Reserves and are putting in your time at a station, it's always a good idea to still show up with something to be shared with the crew you are working with.

No need to break the bank, you can make cookies or bring in ice cream, but showing up with something for everyone is just good manners and always a good gesture. It shows your generosity and spirit of giving, which is what the fire service is all about.
