You find yourself suddenly "coverless" as your S.O. does a 360 and falls out of bed, taking all the covers with him when the pager goes off.
You bring books to read while you wait at the statoin for them to get back from the quick call.
You take separate vehicles to family gatherings or other events in fear that you may be stranded there

have to dedicate a whole room for all the fire memorbilia he has collected.
when ever you go on a road trip and have to stop at all the local fire stations to meet the "guys" and find out their average calls per year, and what apparatus they have. (That would've been five hour trip turns into a day and a half.)

as soon as you show signs of sickness he and his buddies want to stick you with an IV instead of giving you Pepto or NyQuil.
When he (and the rest of the VFF crew) beg you to have the baby at home so he/they can deliver you.
if you have ever talked about moving and the decision is down to whether or not there is a volunteer department or not.

When the family car is a mini Ambulance First Aid bag,scope, blood pressure cuff, etc also red light, sirens, scanner, in glove box instead of cloth gloves there is rubber gloves (very important:).
