Who in the eff is we? If you are trying to group my department with that crappy bunch posing as firefighters you run with, that's truly an insult. What you and your rubes from jerk water Louisiana do is definitely not what the rest of the fire fighting community does. No matter how many times you state such. The fact your leadership does nothing to reign in such cowardice and inability to perform only tells me they condone such behavior.
Sure there are situations where some risk is justified - Viable life and property, but as a whole, we often do not realistically evaluate what we perceive as viable as compared to what is truly realistically viable.
Really? I will wait to hear from you and your list of "most people"....
As far as your other statement, I doubt most folks here would agree with it, and honestly, that's all that matters to me.
