    It really pisses me off when people know there is a problem and dances around it or lies to your face when you confront them about.

    I hate when firefighters or officers act like high school kids and try to make jokes about people who are doing the right thing.

    Quit complaining about running calls, this is what we do and are supposed to do well. If you whine about helping the public, crawl back under the rock you crawled out from under!

    We truly are our own worst enemies as far as the public goes. Just look at some of the crap in headlines our “brothers” and “sisters” pull. Totally pisses me off.

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
Ben, Thanks a lot for your comment! You're definitely right that there needs to be hoseline protection given to the guys working above the fire; and that a TIC should be utilized when attempting VES techniques.

“Go” Versus “No-Go” A Brief Look into Survivability Profiling
