Listen to the Old-Timers
There’s bound to be one or two old-timers at your firehouse. Veterans may seem stuck in their ways or “old-school,” but they got to be old-timers for a reason. They’ve been around the block and made a mistake or two in the past.
The great thing about asking veterans for advice is they can save you from making your mistakes and help you solve problems. So remember, whether the old guys at the firehouse want you to shave your beard or tell you how to install your hideaways, it’s important to listen.
