We had a guy here get eggs put in his boots. Completely ruined them. The person who did it deserved a beating. Simple as that.

I can't believe this has gotten so many comments. Just don't fruck with someones gear. Don't fruck with what they eat. Common sense people.
If you do, you can expect a 55 gallon can of whoop ***** to hit you - either by the rules or outside of the rules.

There's never any reason to screw with gear. In fact, it should be that we make sure nothing happens to someone's gear if we see it out of place. I'd say not screwing with gear is the number one unwritten rule in the firehouse.

My gear was messed around with just once. I had been out IOD for 5 weeks (I slipped on a wet floor at a malicious false alarm at the high school and landed on my portable radio, screwed up my back) and when I returned to duty, a member of my group had secured a rather large pillow (using safety pins) to the backside of my bunker pants in case I fell down again. They really cared about me....
and yet some guys in this thread would kick a guy in the @$$, others would have him fired, and a small number of us would laugh at having our "balls busted".
Putting eggs, kool aid, shave cream or anything else in someone elses gear... those are grounds for disciplinary action."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

I know it is not related, but long zip ties on the drive shaft of the BC's wagon, or truck of the dude you releive, is another classic. Takes some people forever to figure out what that noise is.~Drew

Never mind the safety issues, and everything else that's been brought up (but not minimizing them, either).
Odds are the trickster wouldn't appreciate the same thing being done to his gear, and would be very vocal if it was.

You may find your mattress on the roof, but turn outs are strictly off limits.

Once went on a run and saw that someone had used medical tape to put "Juicy" on the backside of a guy's turnout pants. He ended up directing traffic around down wires, the look on the passing motorists was priceless.
That would be the limit, and even that was pushing it, but so funny.

A few things here:
1. Anyone who has people messing with their stuff probably deserves it.
2. Long visits after work and mess with people's head and kick their *** all translates to I would cry about it.RK
Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.
"Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.
Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.
