    Default Apologies

    Hey all new and old I just wanted to apologize to you all publicly for my actions and reactions. The week in question I landed 2 fatalities in the same week after having none. I did not think they were affecting me but they obviously were, I have talked with my A/C about it for awhile now and things are much better. I apologize again and look forward to learning from you all!

    It is a process.

    Just let me say, I don't think you need to apologize, you didn't kill any of us.

    Recognizing that you are feeling some effects is 90% of the battle to recovery.

    Now that you have this off your chest, go out and do good work my friend.

    Most of us have been there, so I wouldn't dwell on it here again.

    Ok, now get in the kitchen and finish the dishes.


    Now any of you that have ever sat around a firehouse table with some salty jakes for any period of time would understand the humor and understanding of my above comment.
    I can't believe they actually pay me to do this!!!

    One friend noted yesterday that a fire officer only carries a flashlight, sometimes prompting grumbling from firefighters who have to lug tools and hoses.
    "The old saying is you never know how heavy that flashlight can become," the friend said.

    I smell a lesson learned.



    Signs of a good firefighter who learns lessons.

    I got to echo the above.

    No need to apologize, and now get in that kitchen and finish cleaning up.
