    Post Rant About FH.Com News Contributors......

    Someone did it again!...... In the News stoies on the home Page here today, the is a Story and Photos of a 2 Alarm fire in a Vacant housing project in a run down Urban area. Although there are some good photos along with a good discription of operations, the person who submitted the story totally omitted any reference to what City the incident happened in........ Lately, a number of incidents have made it onto the News section here that have had the same error........ I'd like to ask Everyone who submits a News item to FH.Com to PLEASE be sure the Jurisdiction that handled the incident is mentioned.............

    I agree.. BossierBobby needs to know which FD it is so he can critize them on the forum!

    Aha! But you see, thats the madness to the method. If the FD/Coy etc is not mentioned directly, then they can not be critizised or "held accountable" for improper procedure.

    Agreed! I hate "right click - copy - paste -enlarge" to read dept names. But I think it has Detroit on the side of the ladder truck.

    Funny you all hate him so much and want him to go away. Yet you try to lure him into every thread so you can hate on him.
