    Okay let's recap this train wreck...

    junior22 comes on and asks which pager he should take as a 14 year old junior firefighter.

    First he says he won't be responding.

    Then he says at 15 he says he can respond.

    Then he asks about contacts and scba.

    Yeah, whatever...

    junior22,

    I want to apologize to you.

    Whether I believe your story or not is irrelevant I was unnecessarily rude to you.

    Good luck in your career in the fire service.

    junior22 I have a question- when you are allowed to respond at 15, will you have a blue light on your bicycle, and if so, what kind??

    You cannot respond to the station with a bicycle. You can respond at 14 with caution though. It all complys with the child labor laws,that's why we get pagers.

    What does this mean? You can run, but not ride your bicycle? So you dont hit any curbs and fly over your handlebars or something?

    This fire department allows junior firefighters (who are specifically prohibited from interior ops) to run blue lights.

    That is all.

    I dunno - I've been to more than a few fires where I needed a pack while running the pumper...
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    If they wear this type of Helmet then they can respond to the station on their bikes!

    This Jr FF helmet includes a led light and a siren, for safety of course.

    If you read the rules, they are aloowed to operate at vehicle fires and exterior handlines while in SCBA.

    It's not uncommon for our juniors to pack up and perform the backup role on handline for both of these operations. It's a good way to give them some fire attack experience.

    Seesm like a pretty comprehensive and well laid out system.

    You're OK with a 16 year old kid operating a hose on a fully involved car fire?

    Nope it doesn't have to begin at all. Frankly, I couldn't care less what LA or anyone else uses for staffing. Kids under the age of 5, elderly people with walkers, developmentally disabled chimpanzees, who cares?

    The only time staffing of another fire department matters to me is when I call them for mutual aid. Then they have to meet MABAS if it goes to a box alarm and then must be an adult, and certified to at least FF1. It is pointless to point out liability and legality to people who simple don't give a damn.

    So I shall not engage in another battle over this. But I may watch if you decide to!!

    HELLO THE KID IS 14 YEARS OLD! But I guess that you make sure he was trained up to your specs so he'll be ok.

    Ohhhh......lordy.

    I won't respond to LAFE. He's one of the many reasons the fire service will always be second in line to LE for funding. Can you imagine a 14 y/o being given the keys to a squad car and a gun? That's the analogy.
