    Smile QUESTION for firefighting file

    I am a young guy from china, and wonder strongly whether you guys would making a firefighting file about the whole spot firefighting or not. thanks.
    IN china, there are many notes about the spot firefighting,such as firefighting record, video and tapes, and handover notes. Are there any spot notes during you firefighting activities, and would you tidy it?

    I have no idea what you're talking about.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Simply, yes. I have a dog named Spot and I like to file it, the whole Spot. Sometimes I record, video and tapes, and handover notes.. but I cannot share those with you, they are a bit private and I don't think the wife would like it.

    I'd love to help you out, but I'm not sure which way you came in.

    Welcome to the forums, chenjian.

    I think you might be the first member from China, although I know there are/were a few from Asia in general, but I can't recall exactly where they were from.

    Guys, I may regret this, but I think he's legitimate and just having a hard time expressing himself in English.

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    I am going to try and guess here. Using my experience with native speakers of German, I'm guessing you used a synonym of the word you really wanted to use. That's the problem with English, so many words mean the same thing and at the same time each word can have multiple meanings depending on context. What you wrote doesn't really make too much sense. There are about three or four things it could mean.

    Are you asking about an incident report for a possible arson, or trying to put together a resume, or asking about spot fires?

    My college professor will be proud of me (she despises online dictionaries with a fiery, hot passion and loathes online translators even more). I knew that spot was the out of place word so I looked up spot in an online Chinese-english dictionary. The word that it said meant spot also meant department. Maybe he's talking about department wide statistics.

    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.

    There are big difference on firefighting behavior between CHINA and USA. What I wanna to say is the document consisting of many notes, papers, record, viodeo, which would process after a fire is put out. What i wanna is the notes, paper, writing about the whole firefighting.
    DO I make me understood this time?

    Youtube might not work in China because it is part of Google, and I believe China and Google don't get along very well.

    On the other hand, I think I'm tending to side with you regarding the OP not being legit here..."Wanna" will never come up in an online translator, and I strongly, strongly doubt that anyone at the OP's level of proficiency in English would know to write that. Conversational casualness like that does not come until an advanced state of proficiency and fluency in a language is attained, and based on the way the rest of the messages were written, it doesn't seem the OP, if legit, would be at that stage yet.

    Question Quick Question............

    Chenjian, here we have the NFPA, which is a Body that has representation from all the different organizations that are interested in Firefighting and Fire Prevention.... Do you have anything like that? Our NFPA creates "Standards" to help make our work easier for those who use the Equipment referenced in the Standard, Like all Hose Couplings are the Same. Do you have something similar, like a "Chinese National Standard Thread"??..........
