    Geez, are all these forums now just a bunch of jackasses or what?

    Well let me educate you a lil then. a riding assignment isn't where you sit in the truck but what you are going to actually do. From the companies that I have been around up there they are not anal enough to have to put alil note stating you have to sit here etc.... They do the job by assignment which is what the original poster was getting at I think. IF not I dont know where each one exactly sits on the truck and I dont really care.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    The reason I asked the question is we were having a talk at the kitchen table a few shifts back, about this topic and I would like to share it with the rest of my crew if I find out. No one on my shift knew what CFDs riding assignments were and were curious since we are not to far from Chicago. Our disscusion was brought up because we were getting everyones point of view if they liked our current system. Our current system is Officer: TIC, halligan,Driver: if going to the roof then saw and a hook, Irons: Halligan, Flathead or sledgehammer, rabbit tool ( Out of our 9 trucks, T4 which is a quint b/c its at our airport Irons seat will have nozzle if the truck is operating as a engine, Roof: 6 foot hook, pickhead, roof rope, Hook(OV): 6 ft. hook or longer , and halligan, when done with OV joins officer and irons for search and takes in halligan and a 2.5 gallon can. Engine Officer: TIC (halligan sometimes), Nozzle, Backup, Door, Driver. Squad is about the same as truck. Any opinions on our current system that I could possible relay back to the guys. Thanks
