    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.

    Area consists of the arm span of them both.

    Please do not judge this state by the constant group former or current vistors calling it home.

    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.

    I think he deserved it. Anyways, back to the topic at hand:
    I've learned a lot since I posted by uhh advice (if you can call it that). I asked my Chief that and told him my response, he told me to get a firefighter one book and start reading... Anyways, it was naive.

    Career or volunteer probie?

    Two very different animals with 2 very different sets of expectations at 2 months.

    Yet you'd be willing to put your rural volunteers in an urban environment and expect them to perform flawlessly.



    Either way, I'd put a first week rookie against you any day of the week.

    The progression of a volunteer will take longer than somebody who just completed a 16-week academy, as a volunteer would have to be trained over a much longer period. After that process, yes, a volunteer could perform at the level of a career firefighter trained at the academy.

    There is no doubt in my mind that a well trained volunteer could perform many, if not all tasks required in an urban environment.

    Nowhere did I say all, or even most, but there are some that would have the time and the work schedule to dedicate themselves sufficiently to do it. There are likely many more that could be trained to the level of a very competent support (ladders, fans, exterior ops, pump op/driver) member.
