    Correct. And we don't know. So why again would anyone bash this FD?

    The chief says "When we got here the home was totally engulfed, and we did what we could do. We're a volunteer fire department. There are things that might have been overlooked, but we did the best we could at the time." said the fire chief.

    The body wasn't found for 2 weeks. It doesn't matter I guess, for those of you that believe this is acceptable good for you, I don't.

    Keep hammering me if it makes you feel better. I can tell you I most certainly would not have thrown the "We're a volunteer fire department" trump card. I would have plainly said we screwed up and changes will be implemented to ensure it doesn't happen again. No excuses, own the mistake.

    The thing is they may be a very good FD, but the chief did them no favors by what he said.

    Carry on...

    My comment was meant to be sarcastic, that doesn't play well in print I suppose.

    From the article:
    Once the fire was under control, Riddle said personnel from all three departments conducted a quick scan of the debris and reported no evidence suggested anyone was in the house.
    What was missing, TV not on? No lights? What kind of asinine statement is that? But it's all good, they are "just volunteers", right?

    I'm pretty sure I have a good understanding of the definition of secondary search. It does not include the phrase "a quick scan of the debris".

    The only time I do a quick scan of the debris, is when I finish taking a dump. At my age it's a good idea to start.

    So, I am not the only weirdo that scans their fecal waste products? I am not sure if I feel better or worse about that...

    I don't need a yardstick. I know the circumference of the bowl so I just count the number of times said log circles the bowl!!

    This thread has certainly gone down the crapper.
