    Mhmmm.. You are so right.. Not really though. My DPSST records show I'm with a fire department... My EMT also tells me I have to be affiliated with a department to use the skills? So unless I've created my own department and I'm chief, then I believe I'm with a fire department. Have been with the fire service since I was 16. When I was 17, I graduated high school joined the Navy. Became a corpsman, was stationed with the mighty 3/7, 3rd Battalion 7th Marines. I was in Al Qaim area—in western Al Anbar Province, basically fighting off pockets of ants that where coming over from Syrian border. I was giving an Honorable discharge in 2010 for reason that I don't want to discuss. It's medical. Joined up with my local fire department. Got on this website, and got real ****ed, and made myself look like an ***... I AM NOT A TROLL.

    What this kid is trying to say is he is a veteran of the Call of Duty Wars. Too many nights eating hot pockets and drinking redbulls so he can prestige has worn his patience thin. You'll never feel the pain he felt as his avatars were shredded by rounds. You'll never know what it's like when you just want some pizza rolls but mom is at work and you'd have to get up yourself. Life is hard after you return from war, people are cruel. They labeled him "avatar killer" and spit on his controller. He once saved his xbox live buddy whose avatar seemed middle eastern (or russian, who knows, school is for mean heads) only to be denied service at his 7-11 for smelling too bad.

    All he wants is a little respect for all the time he spent sitting on his couch, eating cheetos, and defending your digital freedom.

    lol, in Nicholson? no, sorry. It's a major avenue here though, and unfortunately I do not live in nor on it. Same city though, you're very close. Only worked 3 departments, still at one and volunteer at another and good terms with the first one as its a neighbor of my volunteer. I have nothing to hide for I do not lie, feel free to do what you must but please get your information straight, Nicholson is way too busy of a road to build houses on.

    Kind of makes me regret redacting your information. I enjoyed watching your self destruction though. Can't wait for your apologies/departure/banning.

    I've only been to two fires this year. One was my own house back in February and then one last Monday morning just 15 hours after I rejoined my old volunteer fire department.

    Sorry to hear that. Generally ones outlook is changed once jobs hit close to home...or in your own home. Chances are if the OP or anyone who Has been truly humbled by fire like you have been, then dumb topics like this would not exist.

    .....basically, be careful what you wish for. Personally, I could careless if I ever go to another fire ever again. People get hurt, they loose all their worldly possessions some of which can not be replaced, we get hurt and all too often killed....think about that the next time you are In The street high fiving and saying "this is cool", " great fire"....f that nonsense. I'll be ready for when another fire happens, but I sure ain't gunna hope for one. Besides this job is about the members and doing the right thing....go to work, have fun, but stay safe and work safe. Have a good meal, unless it's the engines month, have a few laughs....a few belly laughs and go home in the same condition you arrived at work in.

    Thanks and I agree wholeheartedly, having what ended up being a small fire in my house this year and then my parents' house burning down in 2008 has really opened my eyes as to what people go through when they have a fire. And I say mine was a small fire but we were out of the house for 2.5 months. So really there is no such thing as a small fire.

    I would love to say that I will never have to put on turnout gear,
    I would love to say that I will never have to put on medical gloves,
    I would love to say that I will never open another nozzle,
    I would love to say that I will never have to do chest compressions,
    I would love to say that I will never have to run lights and sirens again,
    but this isn't the perfect world we would love to live in.

    My first (and only one so far in two years) was May 8th. We went to the next town over as mutual aid for a single-story residence. House was a complete loss.

    That's exactly why I hate to hear firefighters talking about how they want a fire, or they can't wait for another fire.

    Most of us with experience know that the next fire could be very close to home - especially in a small town.
