    Yeah everything is different according to georgraphy. Example: I see more traditional helmets in one fire station up here than I ever did in LA. Let me ask you a question.
    Does your department donn your gear before you mount the trucks to go on a medical call?

    Generally we do not wear full turn out gear for a medical call because it simply isn't necessary. The only time you will see people gear up is if the medical call is part of a vehicle accident, involves machinery or equipment, or inclement weather, or the firefighter was working out and is in work out clothes.

    We generally wear our station uniforms and our reflective safety vests.

    Alright, now let's use your policy as an example. You are wearing only turnout pants, and you are diverted from a medical call to a structure fire, you will unbuckle and start gearing up would you not?

    Depends on how close we are. Many officers are sticklers on the no dressing out while we drive. Some will have the MPO stop the rig to dress out. Some will have the crew dress out on arrival. Some will still allow dressing out while in motion.

    which is still against the "no-gearing up" in the moving truck mentality that you guys have. So it's alright to do it sometimes, but not all the time? Doesn't sound right. Either you allow it or don't.

    First of all, I don't make policy, I am a grunt. Secondly, we are not supposed to dress in route. Thirdly, you are a real smart *** you know that? You were a JUNIOR firefighter, and are not even a firefighter currently, and you like to try and act like you have a freaking clue. My advice? Grow up, shut up, and stop trying to justify your mistakes by pointing at others. I bet you were a real joy as a junior walking around behind people never smart enough to know when to shut the hell up.

    Who is this "we"? You went out of your way to post in a thread, to express that you dont care. Congrats.

    It is not directed at the responses. It is directed at 6Durion1. His post are not for his informational purposes or to expand his horizons in this thread. He is merely trying to stir up crap. He is spouting off incorrect memories (acording to LAFE) of an event that happened several years ago. Why? He is trolling! Looking to fire people up, that is why i have not responded to any of his questions in this thread.

    The "we" i was refering to is anybody that has taken the time to post or read this thread. The reason for my post was to show my displeasure in taking the time to read (listen in the web world) a thread (a public conversation in the web world) in the tactics section that is not about tactics but an attempt by someone who obviously is not trying to learn but to furfill his own personal desires.

    Then what the f uck ARE you doing??? Could have fooled me.

    Most of the guys in here have more time sitting on the schitter in their firehouses than you have total time in the fire service. Therefore, a word of advice: Close your piehole/STFU/do whatever you need to do to disconnect your vocal cords from your thoughts until you have at least 5 or 6 years on the job.........Now get in the kitchen and clean the dishes, rookie.

    But I'm a rookie and all of you are experienced, so I'll shut the fu*k up as long as you don't talk about my former department.

    Progressive? Have you been down here? We have a 2 month in probie who will run circles around you. Labeling yourself as a progressive is actually "laugh-out-loud" hilarious.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, I hope in your time of need that you are assisted by a firefighter just like yourself.
