The Firefighter 3 crew swap stories about those 'firefighter life' skills that go beyond FF1 and FF2

From who’s in charge of the remote to station laundry etiquette, the crew unpacks the lessons all new firefighters should know

On this episode of the Side Alpha Podcast, the "Firefighter 3 crew" -- Matthew Hennessy, Andrew Beck and Ben Willey -- talk to Chief Bashoor about all those firefighter life skills that no one taught you in Firefighter 1 and 2, specifically, who's in charge of the remote, laundry etiquette at the station, and other lighthearted lessons all new firefighters should know. The crew also explains how these lighthearted lessons can translate into meaningful mentorship between new and existing members.
