    Default Volunteer know nothings v.s. Paid Professional...

    ...cafeteria cooks. I know that when I'm putting my trust in someone to prepare a nice meal, I'd rather it be a paid professional chef. Food poisoning gives me the schits!

    Do the Professional Chef's wear white chef hats or black ones?

    My grandmother was a school cafeteria cook back in the day. As far as I know, nobody got food poisoning on her watch.

    I don't think she wore a hat. Probably a hair net.

    We use all volunteer help for our chicken barbeques. And people keep coming back.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    I have no problem with volunteers helping in the kitchen, as some of the cookies they bring or make are really great. I DO however have an issue with them using their own hats or nets. There is no need for that at all. They get their own hat, then they want an ID badge, soon enough they are vying for space in the frig.

    You HAVE to draw the line somewhere.

    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.

    Default White hats..

    Mr. Ball you know as well as I do that there are "White Hatted Chefs" who have given me food poisoning
    and have no business in the kitchen.

    I would like to see their version of NFPA regarding those "Cafeteria Lady" bras. You know the ones. 18 metal clasps in the back that prevent devastation to anyone within three feet should they fail.

    It would be like a Claymore if they did fail!

    You might have to better define your definition...

    Have you any idea why a raven is like a writing desk?

    Volunteer. . . . . They still use the "traditional" hair nets, not the salad bowls. They also deck out the food carts with all of the coolest, new LED's.
