    Do a google search on that subject. Be careful on what you select and use, it may embarrass you and make the members mad.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    In today's society, I would suggest you be VERY, VERY careful in your choice of cadences. Heartbreak Ridge would NOT be a good choice...

    Cadence:

    I don't know but I've been told
    Academy is mighty cold
    Working out here In the breeze
    Forget your cap and we'll all freeze

    I don't know but it's been said,
    Beat the heat our you'll be dead
    Check for heat and crack the door
    Exhaust intake then hit the floor
    Life and lift, location too.
    Attack the seed and we'll be through.

    IC this is engine 1,
    Pack it up cause we're all done!

    -------------------------------------

    Here we go again,
    Same old stuff again
    Marching down the avenue
    12 more weeks and we'll be through
    I won't have to look at you
    Ugly ugly ugly you
    You won't have to look at me
    Pretty pretty pretty me.

    Cause it won't be long
    Till I get on back home
    Back home back home
    Back home where I belong.

    ---
    Up in the morning out of bed
    Hop in the truck I call big red
    On our way to a BLS call
    A geriatric took a fall
    The sky is blue and the sun is higher
    We're Headed to a structure fire.
    Get to the scene and size it up.
    We're going in so grab your stuff
    Look to the left and look to the right
    You find the fire and start your fight.
    You find the fire and start to fight.

    Cadences are a waste of time and breath. False motivation at its finest. Something pogs use to feel more "military." Running in cadence is also a detriment to the stronger runners that are forced to slink around at the slow guy's pace. Why is the the fire service always trying to identify with the military anyway? Besides having a rank structure, they are completely unrelated.

    Not to mention that %99 of the cadences I've heard called were totally gay.

    Cadence and the term "paramilitary" should be abolished from the fire service.
