The FDNY swore in 320 new Probationary Firefighters on Dec. 29. They now begin 18 weeks of training at the Fire Academy.
My cousin is fresh out of firefighting academy where they were given courses on PTSD. He told me about triggers, like how burnt flesh is one of the worst, and how smelling anything similar after retrieving a body from a fire can put you right back in that situation mentally. His chief has some issues after pulling a 9yo with 3rd degree burns from a treehouse fire, cuz he had a young daughter at the time. This is the shit Tumblr wants to equate with "hands and money make kinda me uncomfortable".
