    I would love to have this fine example of American youth come to either of my POC FDs or my career FD and talk to a "Senior Man" there the way he talks here. I think one of 2 things would happen...1) He would find himself with a size 12 boot upside his butt, or 2) He would be cordially invited to find somewhere else to be.

    Either way, he is coming off as a snot nosed kid, or a poser pretending to be a kid. It very well may be scarecrow.

    Really not into influencing anybody .. here or anywhere else. As far as the yardbreather ... Well, the folks that have worked with me know that's not the case and that is really all that matters.

    When you can prove otherwise, just let me know.

    LA I think you are as full as **** as a Christmas goose. If you are anything in person to what you are on here I would have a real hard time coming to work knowing I had to be around you. You are so far out in left field I don't even think you are in the parking lot to the ball field.

    It appears I made a HUGE mistake apologizing for being rude. Honesly junior22 you are coming across like the wise a s s little ***** I initially assumed you were.
    I seriously doubt this kid/troll would have the balls to say that to a real firefighter face to face. I'm done with this punk. Normally your first instinct is right.

    Yeah. Because, you revealed yourself to be a joke.

    So show us a picture of a building that didn't burn because of your prevention and education effort. Shouldn't be too difficult to prove given your self proclaimed expert status.

    So you want me to show you a picture of building that didn't burn down because it didn't have a fire that was prevented by public education?

    As far as my expert status, I never claimed that, but my experience in public education and juvenile firesetting both in the field and as an instructor has been recognized.

    Just being recognized is not always a good thing, I mean I could proably recognize mickey mouse from way across a room, doesnt mean I want him to "edumicate" me or my kids.

    Yes. You're making the claim that fire loss has decreased since you started your education program.

    You seem to have conveniently "missed" this so I'll post it again. I eagerly await your response, I need a good laugh.



    Your own words, unchanged saved for only posting the relevant portion.

    Never did I say that an increase in fire activity was due to a lack of a public education program, however, if a department that has no significant program in place, in most cases, would see much less of an increase as many times, there is a preventable element in any increase, even if just a part, in an increase in fire activity.
    Just to summarize:

    Tajm ...

    Given that most structure fires are preventable with behavior modification - education - unless you have a severe arson problem, like say, Detroit, I will stand by my statement that if a department is experienceing a lot of fire activity it's likely that they are not doing very much prevention or the prevention is ineffective, for a variety of reasons.

    If the increase is due to arson, that is not preventable. If the increase is due to causes related to inproper behaviors, they are preventable and the trend can be reversed through increased education and prevention activities.

    In 2010, we saw a significant increase in brush incidents, including 5 structure fires caused by brush fires, due to the drought. Even though conditions in 2011 were worse, we responded to less than 50% of the brush fires we had in 2010, with no structure fires resulting. Why? because we significantly ramped up our prevention messages targeted at brush fires combined with an increased awareness of the situation within the community. We still saw more brush activity than usual but it was far less than every nieigboring department.

    We now have far fewer kitchen fires, heating fires and brush fires because those were the areas that we harped on and the result is a significant drop in those fires, as well as fires overall.

    Bottom line is if you look at departments - volunteer and career - with aggressive, staffed and professionally run either by certified educators or trained fire department personnel, you will find departments that run fewer fires than departments without such a program.

    Could you post something that proves this point? Your opinion doesn't count. We all know it's bogus.
