*New Firefighter* Small Groups


Congratulations! You're a firefighter! So now what?

How cool is it that you get to don your bunker gear, jump on that shiny red engine, and go knock down fire with the best of them? If that was all you had to worry about, life would be great. However, there is more to being a new firefighter than just fighting fire.  And....it's all new for your family too - your spouse, children and extended family.  You and your family have to figure out how your life will balance with being a rookie, the politics of the fire service work and how you fit into all of it, balance your career with your family life, learn how to cook for a crew, SOPs, MOPs, and navigating paperwork...just to name a few. Make sure you have the support you need on the backend to be a successful firefighter. Share stories, get and give encouragement and advice on the growing pains of developing into the firefighter and husband / father  you want to be, talk professionalism with other new firefighters and seasoned firefighters.  Join others who want to give their best to their careers in the fire department and their families at home. Join the small group created specifically for new firefighters and find the friendships, support, laughter, and guidance you need to thrive as a firefighter and a husband / father and all around great guy.

Group options include....

Small Groups For All Firefighters
small groups for men (1)

You survived fire school, being a probie, learning the ins and outs of the fire department... but what about all the rest of those life topics?

Firefighters are husbands and fathers and have lots of other responsibilities too.

Career, Volunteer, Wildland, DOD, Firefighter, Chief...

All types and titles are welcomed and encouraged to find the right fit with our many groups available.  The 24-7 Commitment Small Groups for Men are online communities of devoted firefighters who honor their marriages and families.  You'll find groups led by experienced firefighters who will bring you great topics, resources and tools for making a Commitment to not only your marriage, but to every thing you do.

Be the change you wish to see in the fire service.

Maybe you just want to join a group of firefighters doing something good for their marriages and families by being just as devoted at home as they are the firehouse.  You'll find communities of positive action and reaction.  Firefighters encouraging and supporting each other in true Brotherhood form. Share stories, get and give encouragement and advice on the growing pains of developing into the firefighter, husband and father you want to be.
