List those three people in the post in the comments section of the posted. I put up on the FACEBOOK page Brotherhood Academy Radio Facebook as book page lists those three people next to their names. Write down what they did to mentor you to make you who you are now or who you want to be in the future okay.

It's a real easy challenge. Eligible also gets you out of your comfort zone a little bit and courage guys as participate in this. I did mine okay. And I'm hoping to get some more people on their to do do. There's IT's important for us to get out of our comfort zone. Okay and if we don't get out of our comfort zone we can't grow the only way we will be able to grow anywhere in our life is to get out of that okay. I am really really bad at approaching people really bad about Taking compliments for myself off but also Opening Up to other people and explaining to them how they Changed my life or did good things from him. I have a hard time with that. It's uncomfortable for me but what I did it. Okay and it feels good. It really feels good to step out of that comfort zone so please guys go do that all right so i WanNa talk about mentorship and this is part one I should now. I guess the Wednesday box alarm I just did was maybe part one but I think that was a little bit of an introduction but part one of the mentorship program or series that we're doing on the Brotherhood Academy radio. PODCAST is happening right now. Okay let's talk about some mentorship ship stuff. Let's talk about the basics of it all right so what does mentor. Ship mean. Well it's when a person who possesses more skill experience experience or knowledge of a particular topic and creates a developmental relationship with one who desires to learn that particular topic. All right so what I'm saying there is if you're good at something if you have a skill or talent right you're on the fire department and you have something that you've been doing for a long time for example pump operator or a driver. Okay or you've been a a an officer for quite a while Or you you happen to be really really strong with ems and it's something that you're passionate about. You have that potential to be a mentor for the person coming in who wants to learn. Oh not as well who needs some assistance with that. That's what a mentor is. And that's what mentorship is okay. Now I wrote down my list of mentors on that facebook post okay. I'll name them. Okay I'll tell you them right now. All right One of them is. Peter Humphry okay. He's he's a He's our assistant. Fire chief here and when I joined the Fire Department in two thousand and one he was a lieutenant with us okay and he has a a ton of experience now but he was very aggressive right. He was very he was always the first one to do things he was assertive. He stick up for his guys and I followed him and he meant toward me and he taught me the basics ins and outs of Leadership Okay and firefighting and tactics all right a lot of the big fires that we had when I first joined because we had a lot of them of course they've dried up now just like almost everywhere else else in this country but he was always my officer he was always the one there was always following him. So he's one of my mentors he always will. It'll be he will continue to be. He's now the assistant chief and he's still mentors me. We still bounce ideas off of each other. And he's still straightens me up sometimes when I have a bad the idea about something you know. So yes so Peter Humphrey I one on my list. The next one okay is a guy named Zak ABC Gar. We grew up together. He He'd happens to be Paul's cousin. He's lieutenant with me on the Fire Department here but hey is one hundred percent topnotch coach in ems. He's a paramedic. He's got a degree in fire science degree in Para Medicine. He worked on an ambulance part time. He's a lieutenant on a career department uh-huh and did a lot of ems there. He just knows his stuff. He's an instructor he teaches. EMS stuff he. He makes sure that he makes sure that we keep up with our our our C. H. is with our ems licenses. You make sure that we that we stay on top of that. Each month. He has a classy comes out with. It's a it's a teach yourself herself type of thing where he gives you a topic. He was your website to go to you. Watch a sideshow. You take a quiz you submitted. Every month he does that force on his own on his own time. Sometimes he'll host a class last. Were people from all around the area. Police officers firefighters. EMT's paramedics they all come in. They sit in his class just so he can make sure that we are getting. Our education continued education to keep up our licenses. Okay anytime I have a question about. EMS anytime a week with it because it's a big huge weakness of mine with the Fire Department is ems. I'm not afraid to admit that I'm not a huge fan of ems but it's part of the job but he's always there to help me with that mentorship okay. He's always there to bring it up. He's always is there to boost my confidence with it right. That was my number two and this is in no particular order and I don't want you guys to do any particular order when you go onto the facebook page enlist your three people all right. The next one was a guy named Keith. Knows where the he is. A CO worker of mine who who we became very very good friends When I got hired as a dispatcher in two thousand and eight he was my trainer?.
