More ammo to rid the fire service of alcohol.......
Please, for the love of God, it's 2013, almost 2014......Can we please grow the fook up and stop alcohol consumption and then doing crap like this? When are you silly idiots going to learn- you consume ONE beer....One single solitary OUNCE of beer or other alcohol, you turn your pager OFF and you leave it there for 8 hours- no iffs, ands or buts. Period.
And you CERTAINLY don't consume alcohol while in uniform at a parade and then ride your apparatus (much less drive....) back to the station. Let's get rid of alcohol at parades, huh? If you feel that you need alcohol to have fun at a parade, why don't you just stay home?? (as long as you turn your pager off for 8 hours if you consume alcohol....)
