Default Any Professional Firefighters

13 year career firefighter here in South St. Louis County (Mehlville).
Just wondering if there are any more of us 'Brothers' here.

Was a volunteer firefighter/EMT for 5 years in Ohio. This time of year was always the worst as people do stupid things to stay warm.

Here to you guys!

I am a firefighter in California. I work for the State Fire Dept., Cal-Fire. I've been on the job for ten years, I'm an Engineer, and I love it. There are only two things I love more than brewing, my family and firefighting. Glad to hear that there are others on the forum. Any others? Take care, perhaps a firefighter beer swap is in order?

Cheers

I put on the Bunker gear once a year, as a ERT Member. I work in a gas plant, and its a requirement that we are trained just in case......

Not paid but 25+ yrs as a volunteer. I'm pretty much at the point where I stick to the fund raising side of the house and let the young bucks go eat smoke. When I started OSHA didn't exist and we still got to ride in harness on the back step of the trucks to calls. Ah, such fun at 20 below in the winter.

I don't ride the trucks anymore but still on the job with 31 years under the belt. I now answer 911 and 7 digit lines and tell the others where to go as a fire dispatcher. I work in a rural area with a small population compared to most of you but we cover many square miles and numerous towns.
