Do fire fighters smoke cigs?
I want to become a fire fighter but a lot of departments have requirements to be a non smoker. I am trying to limit my smoking, but I want to know if they do. In the Marines, everyone smoked. In combat training we smoked cigs like nothing and on hikes we filled our camel backs with alcohol and we performed fine... In combat situations where you have to sprint cover to cover, it had no affect on any of us.. So in conclusion, why do departments have that requirement? I assume its because of an insurance liability?
Semper Fi, gents.
