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?

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.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

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.
