Flashover Friday: “I fight your Fears”

OK, after somebody pushed my buttons last week. (firestudent) I just could not deal with this half A$$ dance around the subject crap anymore.† OK, in no particular order.

When you work at THE slowest company in the city “I fight your fears” must refer to insomnia.† And you were appointed there?† Come on.

    C’mon Anchor, my friend out East, Firestudent was only trying to be his politically correct self, as we bosses have to do, however, I feel your pain my Brother! Let’s see, to answer your statement, If you don’t know the difference between an intake and a discharge after being a DO for 15+ years, you might be marginal.That’s was my version of PC,Defended Firestudent and handed you an awesome example, if I do say so myself, oh wait Bro, I just did! Learn now grasshopper, this is your future.
    Be Safe Bro!

    How about this:
    You might be “marginal” If you get assigned to a great house and you think you are as salty as the firefighters who are forced to work with you. YOU’RE NOT.

    You might be marginal if you “forget” to bring a tool with you to force doors on a mutiple alarm job, on a primary search.

The World is not on fire.
BRAVO. Very good observations. Thanks for writing this. Decisions/leadership based upon fear or lack of training is unacceptable. These things need to be said, to counteract the attitudes that are trying to influence future generations of firefighters.

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
I'm not sure how the Portsmouth, VA FD normally operates but that is an embarrassment. I am not understanding any part of why the hose team did not make entry while one other member broke out the window with an extension ladder to provide quick ventilation. From what is seen, and the conditions present, in…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
Actually it does not seem to raise the temperatures at the floor in most cases. Do you feel feel different after attack begins? Of course you do. Steam is produced when water hits the fire and you feel the humidity through your gear. This is going to happen regardless of whether the stream entered a…

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
Marques, As I have been following this debate for the past few weeks, and looking for the best way to respond, I could find no "correct" way to join the conversation without maybe coming off as narrow-minded.

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
Though hitting a fire from the outside lowers the temperature in the room, it raises it closer to the floor. I've been a firefighter for 14 years and work for an inner city department. You'd better be damn sure there are no victims in the structure anywhere near where those heated gasses are going to…
