In order to be accepted within a discourse community
In order to be accepted within a discourse community, an individual must learn typical ways of communication and interconnection between those within the community. Within this paper I will prove that I entered a discourse community of my wild-land Firefighting Crew by continuously acquiring knowledge, establishing my integrity, and learning the career that I love to serve. I grew up watching my family members serve our community through the fire service. You can ask my parents I always wanted to become a firefighter since I was young. To join the fire service where it is simple and yet still very difficult.
I am still part of the Utah County Sheriffs Wild Land Fire Division. Individuals within the cities might have thought of us normal city firefighters but we were wild-land firefighters that grew to depend and love on one another within the brotherhood. From having to work really hard on terrible assignments to working the incredible suppression assignment, seeing a lot of fire activity, using tactical but safe methods, members share experience, knowledge and responsibilities.
