    Do you know what Police officers and firefighters have in common?
    They both want to be firefighters

    I agree! There is already enough BS between the two. No need to start a "post war".

    I've though of doing both when I grow up but I don't know yet. How is it working out for the people who do both? Likes and Dislikes?

    Didn't mean to start a war. And it was "good natured" I have a lot of respect for them.

    I enjoy doing both (fulltime Deputy Sheriff/Volunteer Fireman) The biggest difference between being a cop and being a fireman, is that when you show up at peoples homes, as a Deputy, they are hardly ever happy to see you. Why are you here? What do you want? It took you long enough to get here. Don't you have anything else better to do? And the best is when you are in a restaurant, and the parents tell their kids, "If you don't behave the deputy will arrest you!" Now on the other hand you could go to the same house or deal with the same people as a fireman, most people love you, no matter what. You could burn a mans house down to the ground and they are still happy to see you! I think that it has somthing to do this the kind of people that we deal with. Anyway, I love to help people, serve my community, and the guys I work with are the best (at both the firehouse and at the sheriff's office) After doing it for the better part of nine years, I realy don't want to do anything else.
    I hope this helps answer you question.

    The cops are the ones usually starting the BS. At least in the city I work for.

    I'm not a cop, never have been, but I absolutely HATE it when parents do that! Know what, lady, if you can't control your damn bratty kids, that's your problem, not the cop who's just in here to get some lunch. No damn wonder kids grow up not trusting or respecting authority...

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."
