    I'm going to fart! No sir, you think you are going to fart. No Doc, I'm really going to fart! No sir you just think you're going to pass gas. Hey Doc, Does it smell like I thought that I was going to fart?

    This really is kinda a Twilight Zone incident thread. This thread was started by some kid getting a pager but can't respond when it drops tones and somehow morphed into an Bull's rectal exam issues.

    Bullman I come to think of you as family I never wanted so I'll try to be kind. The reason the doctor closes the door when he comes in the exam room isn't for your privacy, its an act of humanity so we don't have to watch.

    I will wrench it back on topic, do you wear your pager during the exam?

    I can be blamed for a lot of things, but this diversion into rectal exams damn sure ain't MY fault.

    That's pretty damn funny. Sadly, it's true. What's scary is if there are others out there like LA.

    I am going to chime in here on the original topic at hand.

    We don't even give probies pagers until their 90 days are up. They get gear and if we need them we call them on the phone.

    Juniors get nothing. no pager, no gear, nothing issued. When they come for training, they grab out of the pile. Since none of them are 1403, then they are not doing live burn training anyway. Juniors are not allowed to respond to calls, even if they happen to have a scanner or family member that is a member. They have no place on a fire scene. In our department, you must be 16-18 to be a junior member. So you being 14/15, are lucky.

    Now as for your question. I prefer the M5. it is not much bigger then the M4 and has a better battery. I think the better pager should be left for the other members.

    This was the first pager I was issued many years ago.



    I was later lucky enough to get a M3. I do miss the earphone jack.

    Now have a M5. as back up for when my radio dies, or if I don't feel like wearing it.

    What I just read from your comment is "Yes, I am ok with a child to be preforming these task as long as there is a baby sitter there to watch them."

    That "babysitter" needs to be helping the adults save lives. That child needs to be at home or school.

    I read the PDF Junior posted about the depts rules. We NEVER allow Junior members to leave school. and if you are still in high school, even if you are 18 years old you are a junior and DO NOT LEAVE SCHOOL for any reason. But this goes back to juniors do NOT get pagers or gear. It also goes back to juniors do NOT respond to fire calls.

    So for example. If you are 17 or younger, you do not respond to calls because you are a junior. If you are 18, you are no longer a junior, unless you are still in high school.

    I wanted to say to certain person(s) in this thread. A firefighter is never off duty. You take this job 24-7-365 paid or not paid. So to make climes such as
    "yes, when I'm not on-duty and not operating as a volunteer in either of my districts, and not eligable for workman's compensation coverage for medical bills and lost wages,..."

    makes you not a firefighter in my book. You are a t-shirt hero. Only do it when it is in the best interest for you.

    Small example. A week ago I was coming home from out of town. A guy was driving like an idiot, passed a lady in a no passing zone, then did several "break checks" until he locked his brakes and she hit him. I was directly behind them. I pulled off, turned on my 4-way flashers, called 911, got my safety vest out of the gear bag in the trunk and started to check the drivers. I informed dispatch of their condition and preceded to direct traffic. Now here is the clincher. 1) I was "off duty" as I had informed our chief I was going to be out of town that day. 2) I was not only out of my district, I was out of my state. Did that mean I wasn't a firefighter and should not be concerned with human injury? No. I am ALWAYS a firefighter. The state patrol was thankful for me being there. Shook my hand and took my statement. I stayed for an hour and a half directing traffic for them.

    Someone posted in here before something I liked. I am not a volunteer firefighter. I am a firefighter volunteer.

    Are you for real? Seriously. Is this a game or a joke? I can't imagine anyone joining the emergency service profession and think the way you do. Wonder how you would feel if you had to be taken to the ER and the doctor said "Aw heck, I just went off duty. Just leave that steel bar in his chest till the other doctor gets here." Or how about you are on a plane and having an heart attack and there is a doctor on board, but, shucks, he's out of his district.


    Now I see why Junior has taken to you so well, with your attitude o fnot wanting to work off duty, and his attitude of,

    It's a good thing you understand that it is all part of the job that you signed up for. You are a firefighter FIRST. Everything else comes 2nd.

    Oh BTW. Does your personal health insurance know you are a firefighter? Aside for the high rates, They WOULD IN FACT cover your medical needs if you were injured. Unless you have crappy coverage.



    It is late and I made it to page 12 out of 18. I can't read any more. It's killing me.

    What was Kenny's infraction? Could it possibly have been that both he and Junior shared an IP address?
