After basic they taught me how to maintain equipment on which people's lives depended.
We seem to think that we can run an 18 YO through some military training and turn him or her into a fighting machine defending our country or another military skill, but that we can't do that with a firefighter.
your a junior you dont need a radio ok be lucky that you have the chance to get issued one in my department only OFFICERS andEX / Deputy CHIEFS get issued radios and anyone else grabs one off our apparatus and returns it after an alarm got it
Oh where oh where can my radio be?
The chief took it away from me,
Its gone to Devin so I got to be good,
So I can have a radio like I know I should!
We were working a fire late one night,
When my eyes took in an awful sight,
Out of a window popped Devin's head,
I'll never forget the words he said.
Oh why oh why won't the chief talk to me?
I must have programmed the wrong frquency.
Devin's eyes were wide like a deer in the headlights,
I thought I heard him mutter the guys at firehouse were right.
If I get a little experience and some time on the job,
Perhaps I won't come off as such a knob!
Is this the real life?
Does Chief even see me?
I've got a problem,
No radio given to me.
Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, no Motorola for me,
Because chief won't give, a radio
Volume high, squelch down low.
Wish I had a radio every time the pager goes beep beep, beep beep.
Captain, just give me one.
Tell the chief that he is wrong.
Hell I've even take an Icom.
Captain, my life is empty now.
I just have to have that cool black radio.
Captain, commmeeee onnnnnnnnnn.
Didn't me to make a fuss,
I need the radio when I'm on the bus.
I can't look cool without the radio.
Too late, I bought my own.
Sent shivers down my spine,
Hard-on raging all the time.
Hello, County Fire, I've got one now.
Gonna talk alot without saying much.
Captain, looooooooook (at my radio)
I just bought my own.
I just wish I'd have done this from the start.
I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Fyredup, fyredup, why can't I have a radio?
Flashing lights and sirens,
Is very exciting me.
Fyredup, hey guess what
F*ck you bro.
I'm just a vollie, sc doesn't like me
He's just a vollie, from a poor family.
Spare him the grief, let him buy a radio.
Money comes, money goes, I just bought a radio!
Fyredup, hey f*ck you bro!
Chief let me, program my radio!
F*ck you bro,
(Chief said I could program my radi-)OH
Oh Captain Captain, Fyredup, f*ck you bro.
I bought my own radio, programmed it and I'm good to go, f*ck you bro.
So you think you can mock me, and tell me no,
Well guess what bro, I got my radio.
Spent my cash on something I didn't need.
But now how cool do I look with my radio and tweed.
It don't matter any mo'
Cuz I got my radio.
No don't matter any mo,
I programmed my radio.
Now I talk relentlessly...
There once was a junior named devin
who's age was six plus eleven
He said f*ck you bro
I got my own radio
its like living in stemwhacker heaven
Some of yous guys just have wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much time on your hands.
