Good stuff Pumbaa! If it feels good do it - just make sure your Family are cool too with the changes, i'm sure it'll be good.
BTW there's no way i'm gonna start calling you 'Fire Lieutenant Pumbaa' though. You pushed it last time with the whole 'No Cute Nuns' thing.

Congrats Pumbaa! I too like aviation. I even hold a license but I lost currency ages ago, with no funds available to get current again, esp with fuel prices being what they are......

Up until about 3 or 4 years ago we bought our own gear which personally I prefer. Now we have a comisary system, we are issued 2 full sets of gear, and we have to wear ONLY the gear the department prodives and we arent allowed to customize our gear. (Now i have 2 extra full sets sitting around my house I wear when I am shoveling snow on those REAL cold days.)

If you want a extra pocket on your coat - tough
If youwant to have flip down eye shields instead of goggles - tough
If you want black NOMAX instead of the straw PBI blend - tough
If you want lighter wieght gear - tough

We do get some choices on length of our coats, rubber or leather boots, and fiberglass helmets or a leather one but thats about it

Congrats! :cheers:

I know squat about your rank structure, but I hope for your sake that being a Lieutenant as a fireman is different than being a Lieutenant in the military.
May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

One thing really caught my attention though...

> The guys make beer at the fire house (I'm also a brewing nut).

I wish I could make beer at work! It would probably be frowned upon though. Too close to all of the computers. The only down side would be if a call came in during the boil or while mashing. Still, the thought of brewing at work is cool.

Congrats, man. Does that also mean a nice bump in pay (ie, more/better brewing equipment?
I need to find time to brew more often.
