As I already wrote, I am a volunteer with the local firebrigade. Yesterday I went to the official place to receive my gear and had to put myself through an awfully slow process. First we had to wait, because some children were given gear. Then we had to find out, that a turtle would have been faster than those guys. And maybe more friendly.
Afterwards, I waited in cold for quite some time, because I didn’t realize the car wasn’t locked. I didn’t feel uncomfortabel, but still I got a cold.
Anyway: I have my gear. I will be fighting fires! (Or doing other things …)
