    If you get offended when a firefighter says "um" to you your career is going to be a rough one. We pick on, and at, each other all the time and sensitive fresh meat like you won't last long around the kitchen table. You will be running off to pout, or call your mommy and tell her how mean everyone is.

Your response was to follow me to a long dead post and then to post your stupid attack on here.

    Further, I think you have proven either you are one of the most ignorant college students alive mistaking the word chivalry for cavalry, or you wouldn't know the truth if it bit you on your smart azz. I was right in the first place you are a junior member most likely still in high school living at home with mommy and daddy.
    rip a new one? I said "chivalry is called in" someone said what i meant by it, i responded. How is that ripping? Chivalry and cavalry are two different words. And nope not living with my mom or dad and no as stated i am not in high school.

    And all I am saying is if you really wanted to make nice you could have very easily deleted your post and made yourself look sincere instead of coming off like a weasel.

    A tad thin skinned, aren't we?

    If someone can't take a little abuse on the internet, how the hell are they going to survive in the real world, let alone the fire house?

    Jesus, I guess the internet is serious business...

    To get back on topic we do a 10-6 shift at our VFD. Our members are broken up between Monday and Saturday in the evening for medical calls so we have atlease 3 showing up. Everyone has to show on Sunday. My shift is Monday night and I enjoy only having to get up once a week at night and yes I am at home asleep on my shift.

    F17, we don't do shifts at my company. Did do them when I was active in EMS agency. All shift members responded from home, no one stayed at station overnight. We didn't have any sleeping quarters, no showers, very small kitchen area, etc. Other factor was that all members (at that time) lived within a few minutes of the station so there was short travel time.

    Getting back to the original topic....My department is mostly volunteer, paid per call, with a certain percentage of calls we are required to respond to per year. Our on call shift is 7pm-6am every 6th night, but we can respond to calls whenever we want, not just on our call nights. I usually let my Chief know when i'm in district during daytime hours due to the fact that it's not always known who is available during the day due to work schedules, etc.
