Realize and Be Okay with the Fact You Can’t Make Every Call

6ec84857e5d842eb08e67b9081713316Next, you have to realize and be okay with the fact that you can’t make every call. You may know a guy or gal that walks around with radios from every department in a 30-mile radius on their duty belt and has antennas and every warning light available on their POV, but this isn’t the most efficient way to volunteer.
These guys will drop everything to run to a local firehouse. That’s okay if that’s what you want to do. But it isn’t conducive to having a balanced life. Instead, consider working for one department – the one closest to your home and set-up a schedule. Like a schedule, you would have at your paying, full-time job. Then try to make any scheduled appointments or events outside that time.
Doing this ensures you can separate your family, work, and volunteering plans. It also means less broken dinner dates or missed dance recitals. If you need to be somewhere and won’t be available to answer a call – let the chief know. By giving the boss notice, he’ll be ready to give the floor to another volunteer in case of an emergency and the crew won’t be shorthanded.
