    OK, so you do the job of the probie/FNG/Jr.
    And you wait around on the fireground?


    I bust my *** everyday? The only time I can remember busting my *** was when I fell on the ice.
    I take my time getting to the station, and getting to the call. I have a hott *** girlfriend, a well paying job, and a desire to see Jrs like you make asses out of themselves on online forums.


    I take you for my countertops?
    Who would do the grunt work? We would. Like we did before you came along. And like we will when you leave. Get over yourself.
    Its because of wackers like you that have wacker lights in your car that my car insurance premiums are so damn high.
    Go back to the sandbox, and find yourself a nice guy (or girl) and discover the joys of what happens outside of the firehouse.

    Post 21,

    I second every word that AJ said in what I have quoted above.

    If you were a junior or explorer around here, you would get a swift kick in the ***** and sent on your way. And the way that word travels around here, when you become of age you most likely wouldn't be getting hired anywhere either.

    So get off your power trip and realize that you are there to observe and learn and anytime that the IC or officer determines that the situation is safe enough to let an explorer help, do not brag about it, but take it as a learning experience.

    I learned so much by being an explorer and going on runs but I never claimed to "be taken for granite..." I think that my complexion is slightly different and I'm more personable.


    Take a step back, re read this thread and then hopefully you will come back to us with a new point of view.



    If not.........I will pray for your citizens.
    I agree with what everything AJ an RFRD have said...

    Dude... got beef?
    Hope you noticed it was a joke. (Hence the )

    YOU want to talk about getting priorities straight???

    Please tell me the EXPLODERS are EXPLORERS.
    And watch the bashing newbie... Calling out half of the EXPLODERS on here and saying their just like BOOTS, of all people on Dora, won't get you anywhere near respect around here.
    Take a chill pill, bro. You're new around here... Maybe take this advice - get some respect, get some more time around here, then maybe you can have some sort of credit and not get flamed for bashing people. It's like when a probationary firefighter tries telling a senior firefighter (whos got multiple years in the fire service) that he doesn't know what he's doing or tries putting him down... It doesn't work and you, or that probie FF, will not have a good reputation.

    Hey,now when I was on a vollie department,I was close enough to the station I'd ride a bike to the station.When we rolled,I'd be in back sound asleep because I'd burned all my adrenaline off just getting there.
    There were jokes about me sending off to Galls for a bike light kit but that never happened.I didn't want them.
    90% of all people I've known to have lights on their vehicles,and I am talking about officers,would only run l/s when the call was between them and the station.They call ahead and have someone put their gear on the rig.
    The other times,they'd drive without them to the station and then ride the truck to the call.
    One thing I've commented about is that your insurance WILL go up when you add the equipment to your coverage.They figure that you'll be driving faster than usual and under stress when you do so you'll be a higher risk of an accident even on top of being a 16-18 year old driver.
    Since your folks will most likely be footing that bill,ask them how much they would pay for you to drive.
    BTW,if an Explorer is restricted in what they can do,like not going interior or operating power equipment like speader jaws,why would you NEED lights and sirens on your vehicle?
