Code 3 Podcast: A millennial offers advice for new firefighters

Firefighter/EMT Tom Redden has seen the mistakes of younger firefighters and offers advice to avoid such pitfalls for new members


We’ve talked several times on this show about working with younger firefighters. But we haven’t heard their viewpoint. That’s about to change.

Millennials are sometimes a mystery to previous generations. They learn differently. They react differently. They relate differently.

In this podcast, we talk to Tom Redden, a millennial who’s been around long enough to have seen the mistakes young firefighters make and can share some advice for the new guys. Redden has been a firefighter/EMT with the Flanders Fire Department in East Lyme, Connecticut, since 2017.
