    Personally, I took this job to help people, not to gain a title and a badge.
    I agree with all this

    I'm retired. But I agree with you. The Tea Party and the GOP in CA hammer firefighters, police officers, and teachers daily with the terms you used.

    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

    Just saw a news story that referred to "emergency responders."
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    I've educated my guys on how not to get in the way, well at least most of the time.
