    Check your state regs to see how many laws are/were broken.

    I was speaking to this little pup regarding NJ laws.

    Believe it or not, but we have been getting smacked by feeder bands of gustav from time to time. Man they are viscious and nasty. I feel for our Brothers in the path of this sumbitch.

    Flood waters in many areas here are leveling off, or going down, but I just came home from work, and the waters were too rough, so we didn't send anyone out on the jet skis, and closed early cause of the weather associated with Gustav.

    this thread is very upsetting to read. seriously both sides need to shut the hell up!

    1.the jr's should NOT be aloud to have lights in their car as simple as it is. it is too dangerous.
    2.you should NEVER respond during school. however if your 18 and in your last months of high school (end of april,may,june) and you have no classes going on such as a free period why not? your legally an adult AND legally capable of being a real firefighter as well as having a pov.
    3.jr's need to wait. seriously 2 years isn't that long! just wait!


    as for you seniors out there...jesus christ! alls you do is put down the juniors and treat them like dirt! show some class and courtesy! they want to help and be just like you some day. so that kid has a forum? so what? he is just having a good time and is happy with what he is doing.

    BY THE WAY...Jr's CAN do a lot of things so I would stop bashing them instead of saying all's they can do is "hand out water at scenes".

    jr's can-
    1.help draft water and pumping.
    2.do FULL exterior attack on a fire
    3.fight brush fires
    4.be active on man hunts for missing people and amber alerts
    5.use power tools under supervision

    not only can jr's do firefighting but ALSO be active MRT's at the age of 14 in CT! if they have the training they can! as well as an EMT at 16. i know of emt's who assist in medical calls and are 16 and can do just as much as the other emt. paramedic I believe here though is 18.

    so seriously...junior members just drop it you can't have blue lights. and senior members stop acting like dicks because it looks very unprofessional and not the appearance of what a TRUE firefighter is.

    there is no reason that a explorer, junior, cadet should ever have lights or sirens that is just for what reason there should be no explorers responding even if they have ff1 or what ever and please refer to the learning for life rules

    Cool

    Wow, i find it a little surprising that you "Senior" members show such disrespect to a child asking a question. Not even a question if he could have a blue light, but a question as to more or less other have blue lights. Just answer the question "no our juniors are not allowed to have light" or "yes our juniors run lights".

    You wonder why junior members aren't stickin' around. Well, if I was a junior not gettin' paid I wouldn't want to hear your mouth either. So you've heard the question before. Who cares about if it's been posted before. Your goin to hear the same question a dozen more times before the end of it all.

    I can't stand when "Senior" members bash these jr. members because of their questions. Lead by example. If your a ****** they will be a ******.

    By the way, if you plan on becoming a medic with that attitude, I'd seriously reconsider.

    but, that's just my opinion. nothing more

    Are we even reading the same thread?

    I asked him, several times, to clarify what makes Juniors so important as to have blue lights.

    When he got snarky, he got both barrels.

    I was an Explorer for a busy career city dept, and was a volunteer on a moderatly busy dept with Juniors. They always knew the apparatus inside and out, and they were the ones who I would go to when I first started out to find out where something was located.
    I would go out of my way to teach whatever I could to them in return.

    However, when they get lippy, they got put on their ***, quick.

    They have no room to bitch, especially on an issue such as this.

    I'm not getting into an argument with someone with barely enough experience to wipe his own butt let alone place bandages on patients. Only 6 years of experience and your talking smack to a junior? Do you know where the hose goes on the pumper? Heck your still a junior yourself. And don't even say anything about going to medic school. I'm not impressed your still a pup yourself. Just remember pup, sticky side down.

    (Not so funny when a more experience person is slappin' you down is it.)

    If you want to be a mentor to these juniors answer their questions or just leave the forum. You do no good by arguing with them or back talking a teenager. Besides don't you remember when you were a teenager. It sucked!

    I also didn't have blue lights in my POV, and talked back to Firefighters.

    I find it hard to believe that in your younger days that you never got mad or disheartened about not being able to do something. Attacking fires, helping in some fashion, or being like the other firefighters (i.e. having blue lights). Call it jealousy or what have you. People mimic the people they look up to, in this case a JR firefighter looks up to his superior (probably a bad choice of words) and wants to be like him or her. Now the JR didn't ask whether he can or not. He/she ask why is it legal to do it in that state and not his/hers.

    Your job as the role model (the senior member, the one he/she looks up to) is to reinforce why or why not they can or can not have the blue lights. Not put down the JR member because he got mad because you wouldn't listen to his questions because you didn't want to see past him being a junior member. In your eye an inferior person.

    JR members are invaluable. They ARE our future, They CAN be useful on scene, and WILL be the ones your children will look up to in the future. Whether or not he talks back to you is irrelevant. What is relevant is, did you listen to him as he listened to you, and did you answer his question to the best of your knowledge and help him to the best of your ability.

    I'm sure you are a good EMT/FF but Now, is your time become a good/great role model. Starting on this forum.

    Juniors and Lights- Not happening with our dept, not even a probastionary firefighter can have a red light, you have to be a firefighter before you get used a permit and have taken a defensive driving course.

    As far as juniors leaving school, absoultly not happening, first off because the high school is like 10 miles from the station,the only way a junior from our department could leave school was if the chief called the school and said he needed the juniors (never happend while I was in high school. I issed so many fires because of this.
