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.

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
I found that firefighters do more calls than just structure fires, so with that I've established an acronym I use and teach others in my company. FIRE; First unit, Identify, Resources, Evaluate. It's simple and can't be used for any type of call. I know it won't ever catch like SLICERS but it works. First…

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
When I think of slicers or dicers I think of an acronym to remind you of interior attack tactics. S you should constantly be aware of your surroundings by maintaining your situational awareness while making an interior attack. L locating the fire is really apart of size up I.e. Seat of the fire and extension.…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
As you can most likely tell, I am in favor of the questioning. Thank you for your concern, but I am not offended. This arena does not lend itself kindly to the soft skinned.
