    You can't compare blocking the road on every fire call because of the miniscule chance of a backdraft to having looky-loos at a working fire. They're two completely separate things. NO ONE here hasn't said that there isn't a time and place for blocking the road - sometimes it's necessary. It's just not necessary on every single incident.

    How come you didn't acknowledge or refute any of the facts that I posted?

    Add me to that list. Let me know when you are going Gonzo. I would be most happy to meet you and your associates in Bumble Phuck to teach Mrs.D. a thing or 500.

    STOP, now read what you just said. I can't compare the [DANGER] of a back draft to the [DANGER] of having looky-loos at a working fire.

    Danger is danger in my book.

    Not as funny as seeing you pull your head out of your @$$.

    You are delusional......absolutely delusional.....you obviously do not read any of the rebuttals....and forget the context of your own. One of your previous posts stated "that when the fun starts"...."and that the FDNY is a vacation"....that's pure bravado on your part.

    What if there was a propane tank near the building (common around here). Good need for a walk around team.
    Its common in most places!....Again, you show you know nothing. And what about that tank? Why is it so important? What is the "duck duck goose team" going to do with it?

    What if there was ammo in the home. (VERY common around here). that might go off and injure by standers. (Had ammo at the flea market fire, no one hurt thankfully. Had a gun mounted on the wall of a trailer fire the owner did not inform us about. it went off and shot into the trailer next door. Thankfully we had evacuated that trailer.)
    Being that there are at least 3 guns per person in this country, I'm gunna go on a limb and say its another common issue for the rest of the US....not just your little town in NC. Another sign you have no clue....

    What if there was a basement surrounded by shrubs so you can't tell at first, and it is the location of the fire.
    WTF?!!?!!? Ok...now we all know you have no clue!!! So you mean to tell me....you can't tell if a building has a basement...especially a private dwelling.....?!?

    (the VERY cause of the back draft I saw in person.)
    Bullcrap! Another lie! And what was the backdraft of? When? How? Why?


    So in the end, I could care less how you fell or think about me. Don't like me. ignore me. I don't give a ****. But it is obvious that none of you have stopped to think...period.

    Done with this thread.
    I doubt it.....only once the Web team bans you for advocating the death of members, all the personnel insults, and threats of personal violence....you'll be gone soon.....You are what the webnards call "A Troll"


    P.S. You know the station name, DO RESEARCH for once on your life and fine the address. Come on down (or up in a certain case) we could use a good laugh.
    Well....someone with a backbone, courage of their convictions, and class would post it themselves.....kind of like saying you have nothing to hide......but since you lack all of that....

    DM... do have to have an elective in something like psychology or sociology at WPI as part of getting your degree? If you do , this @$$hat would be great subject matter for a thesis on being an internet tough guy.. who knows, maybe with his vast knowledge of backdrafts and flashovers, he might be able to help you in your fire dynamics class

    Not in my MS program but, as it happens, my first bachelor's degree was in psychology. In technical terms, Mr. D is what we'd call a "fcuktard with delusions of adequacy". (Typically associated with insecure bed-wetting types...)

    Sign me up for the road trip! I'll pack two ice chests, one for beer, and the other for the chunks of Mr.D's butt that will be all over the place. Maybe a good surgeon can sew them back on.

    am new to this forum and was happy to find a place I could join other brothers and sisters to talk and relax. I looked around for a while and then decided to make my first few postings. Now for whatever reason, things got out of hand. Some people didn't like something I said or something I posted or whatever and things turned sour from there. I can not make any one here like me or like everything I post no more then I can make myself like everything that is posted here. But that is what online communities are about, diversity.

    Some people here think that I am "just some kid" or whatever. I may be young and I am sure that to a lot of you older guys and gals I am a kid. But I have been through and done a lot in my few short years of life. One thing I have learned is to stand up and be a man and admit when I am wrong. So I admit that I did wrong on this forum. When some people made smart *** comments about my post or photos or whatever, I should have just ignored it. It was very childish of me to retaliate. There was no excuses for it. Having a bad few days, whatever. That's not the forums problem and I should not have brought it in here.


    So to help start anew Let me take a step back and refresh things a bit.

    Hello. I am Mr. D. I got this user/nick name because I have an interest in vintage 1920'30's life. So this is my persona when I attend swing and jazz events.

    I am 33 years old, high school grad. Originally from Orlando, FL, I now reside in North Carolina. I am married with a 5 year old son and a 3 month old daughter. I have many hobbies other then the ones listed above, such as model railroading, railfanning, automotive, and movies.

    I went to college for an automotive degree, however one semester shy of finishing, the school dropped the course.

    My firefighting career started when I was a Sr. in high school in 1999. I joined as a Jr firefighter along with my GF at the time on her uncles department. When she and I split up, I left the department and joined another closer to me. After I graduated, I joined the Air Force. 2 weeks into basic I was injured and discharged. I moved around a bit and tried to join departments in the areas I lived, but none had any openings. I recently moved back to this area and rejoined my old department again.

    There are 14 departments in our rural area, all volunteer. Sadly our department is the "redheaded step child" of them all. We are working hard to change that appearance. I am working hard to help bring us into the 21st century, with even small steps like a FB page and web site. We have 21 members, 3 of which are first responders.

    I joined the department because I love the job. I respond to all calls so that I can learn as much as I can. I take great pride in being a firefighter, as I am sure all of you do as well. It's not about the glory. It's about the feeling inside you get. That is why I don't see negative in things like my signature image. To me it's just a pride thing. I am sorry if it offends some.

    We are all brothers and sister in this world wide family. We should not be fighting each other. I understand how I appeared to some as a newbie FF kid. I get it. But that's not my intention. I am all about doing things the right way and the safe way, and following all rules.



    So in closing (as it is 3:10 am and I am tiered), I hope you all can take this to heart and forgive a new guy for jumping the gun. We are all human.

    My most humblest apologizes to those that I wronged in here and others that had to witness the events, and to the administration for causing disruption in your house.

    Thank You.

    If and when they find the LP tank, I wonder if the perimeter is expanded per ERG guidelines and the house left to burn? Those things are dangerous! After all, there MIGHT a be a gun inside getting ready to shoot into the next rolling mansion down the block.
