Ok - 20 plus years as a strictly "volunteer" - then the last ten as a POC - so that means I have lost my dedication to the community ? Dang - thanks for enlighting me.

Some good points to look at from Marshal but it all depends on what definition you are looking at as for a volunteer. I volunteer to go to a call when the pager goes off. There is no one standing over me saying when the pager goes off you have to go. There might be some sort of regulation on how many calls you have to make to stay on the department but I still volunteer to go to the calls I can. Unlike a career where when you are working and getting paid you HAVE to go on calls. I still think it is hard to consider getting a shirt that I am required to wear while at training or PF events as getting paid or not being a volunteer. Either way right or wrong good or bad my county considers me a volunteer firefighter and that is what I will say I am.

Our guys get $12 a year "pay", does that make them not volunteer?
