    Cool

    I prefer the traditional fireman, but I do refer to myself fairly ofter as a firefighter. Just beware though, a friend signed up to be a fireman in the Navy and ended up not doing CFR as he wanted to, but in the engine room! Oops...

    I am a Firefighter, but it doesn't bother me to be referred to as a Fireman. It is hard to break old habits. I have even caught my husband saying, "My wife's a fireman." I think fireman is what we all grew up with.

    I get really sick of this politically correct stuff. I'm not in this to change the world, I'm in it to fight fires and help people, just like everyone else.

    P.S. In my career before firefighting I was a pressman, not a pressperson.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again-Firefighter. I just had this conversation with my oldest brother(cop-need I say more?) who insisted the "gender neutral" term is "fireperson"-I swear that 90% of the time I tell someone my mom is a Firefighter they say "Your mom is a fire...ma...wo...person?"-no, Firefighter. Frankly, you can call me a fireman until I take my helmet off.

    Talking

    I refer to myself as a firefighter. I look at fire as a living breathing entity. Henceforth I would find it necessary to fight it.

    Thanks Les I didn't think anyone notice my Trivia question

    Yeah, but the song could be interpeted to make it applicable to the profession if needed. :]

    I call myself a Fire Fighter. I Fight fire. I don't sit around and have dinner with it, I fight it. I don't like it. That's why I fight it.
