    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.

    It appears that the firefighters watching this thing burn are members of the Minnie Pearl fan club!

    Do you mean the laminated accountability tags hanging from their helmets? They get unclipped from the helment and placed on the "accountability" board right before entering the structure. Since they are exterior, their tags would still be with them.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    Oh, I know exactly what they are and their intended purpose. Again, an item dangling from their helmets looking to get caught up on something either inside or outside a structure. Or cutting out someone from a car, etc.

    And no, they dont always get taken off the helmets.

    Now that freaking funny has hell. :

    In all actuality it's Bossier Bobby's Chief and his marry band of yard breathing safety sallies They happen to be driving by a occupied house which was on fire, but was outside their district and thus someone else problem. But they decided to stop any way so that they could just take notes on how unsafe the real FFs were. By running down the real FFs, they feel less like the wussies that they are.
