    Who is sitting on watch? Do you not have a ticket print out...does no one acknowledge reciept of the alarm back to the alarm office? Do you not have "still bells" or a buzzer or something? Who turns on the lights?

    Sh*t happens...but entire companies not getting an alarm? Something doesn't add up and it would make me think your dept needs to upgrade the equipment.

    Hell it would seem bringing back the joker to bang out the box number would be an improvement.

    Sounds almost similar to the BS system the brothers in Detroit are dealing with.

    As for the "termination" I sincerely hope that was toung in cheek.

    Seriously, w ehave a few guys that WONT get up unless you make them.
    Not really a big deal, you just kick their bed ,go pee and then go on the run
    .

    You stop to take a leak in my station, you'll be left behind and have some explaining to do.

    Does it take you longer because you squat?

    Reading between the lines, I bet that because every house is hearing the tones regardless of whether they go or not has led someone to turn the speaker to a low volume so they don't hear the radio chatter of a run they are not making. People get accustomed to hearing the noises at night and ignore them (just look at how many people live close to a railroad and still sleep all night).
    Just about any modern radio can be programmed to act like a pager. Keep it closed until a run comes in and if you're not going, close it back down so you don't have to listen to the run chatter. Setting up a switch to turn the lights on with the tone isn't too difficult, and well worth the investment. If these aren't viable options, then you should consider a house watch. After all, we are expected to respond at any time, day or night. If we have to have a house watch, then so be it, whatever it takes to fulfill the mission.

    Just wondering...Do you have any friends in the real world? Because you haven't got a single one here. But hell, if you are as insincere out there as you are here why would anyone want to be your friend?

    Really? I have yet, in the eight years on the job, to **** before taking a run in. We have 1 minute, 30 seconds to be on the road at night, so that pretty much precludes taking in that 2am leak.

    You are a liar.
    If you want us to believe that before you go on another bull **** fire/EMS run @ 2 am that you dont take a ****....then you must think folks are nuts.
    I and just about everyone i work with takes a **** in the middle of the night.
    Why wouldnt you?
    It only takes like 20 seconds...I can **** and STILL get ready as fast as i need to.
    Now, if it was a confirmed fire....then id hold it.

    Would you please go throw yourself in front of a moving train and get it over with already.

    By any chance, did your company officer-

    A. Lose a bet?
    B. **** off someone at HQ?
    C. Volunteer to take you?

    Thats not the point......With his attitude, he must be the pride of the TFD, and I bet every company officer is ringing the chief's phone off the hook to try and get him transferred to their company.........

    you anti Military?
    Why do you not support your troops.
    Without them, you wouldnt have the right to be a fool.
    The is no intitlement. There is simply reward.

    Anti-Military? Far from it... I fully support troops but to see an idividual display the attitude you have I can't say I agree you deserve a handout on finding a job and then act like you earned your position on the department.

    It was stated clearly and concisely. Apparently you were the only one who didn't understand.


    Did you understand what you wrote? Apparently not, since it proves you not only as a liar, but a hypocrite as well.

    I support the military and in fact just the other day had an interesting experience with a vet who had been in Iraq. I thanked him for his service and we sat and chatted for about a half hour. Anti-military? Not in the least.

    What I am strongly anti is liars like you. Frankly, I don't believe you are a firefighter or that you were ever in the military.


    By the way here is an example of your lies. YOUR words...not somebody saying you said it but YOUR WORDS here on this forum. LIAR.
