    Post SEAT PLEASANT AND KENTLAND

    I know im not from the area, but i've been reading the various forums on pg county and everything always comes down to Seat Pleasant or Kentland. Whats so special about these two fire departments?

    Both 8 & 33 are busy stations and get lots of fire. They have a lot of opprotunity to **** people off.

    because they both are VERY aggressive departments that will steal your fire from right under your nose if you are not just as quick and aggressive as they are. You better be good if you ride at either of those stations, because if you mess up they wont ever let you on their apparatus again, and they might make you walk back to the station after the call
    (at least it was that way a few years ago)
    this tends to **** people off

    "STEAL YOUR FIRE FROM RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE"
    Sounds like a real coordinated professional operation to me. And the rest of us wonder why firefighters are kicking each other down stairs. Adrenaline Junkies forever!!! (and we wonder why the fire service has problems)
    Just wondering, does the police in Kentlands area vollunteer their time too?
    Ha-Ha, didn't think so!

    well, let me tell you one thing, the fires go out and people get saved. Thats what matters in the end, right? People get in fights because they get upset that people are better firefighters than they are. Thats definatley not 33's or 8's problem, they're about the best they make.

    Its usually the people from these two stations, and usually the younger(more inexperienced)members who talk the most crap about how "bad" they are, and how their so aggressive that they'll steal your line. The only way they could steal your line is if they're not following the General Orders and if they are someplace they shouldnt be, not doing their assigned duties. That describes Kentland and the volunteers from 8 on just about everything they run. I seem to remember a certain volunteer captain getting his teeth knocked out on a house fire, trying to take the line. Maybe he should have been doing what he was supposed to be doing.......

    It's funny that you single out the volunteers at seat pleasant for not following the general orders but since sept there have been paid men at 8 and 8 is still getting written up on calls. As far as 8 and 33, I did not know being aggressive and having company pride was breaking general orders.

    For wheelman1619 -- You make a good point about younger members letting their enthusiasm sometimes out running the common sense test. Old salts like you should know better, however -- the following comment:

    demonstrates how ignorant you are about the real situation on that call. Is this one you really want to press, in light of what you KNOW to be the truth (and not just the story)? Ask your buds at the local the real story, about the violations of SOPs by the paid guys, LT alone in the basement, the lack of PPE, unauthorized drivers, etc. etc etc. You go boy! Defend your buddy to the bitter end. Real credit to the business you are, and setting a fine example for the newly hired guys.

    For RonRabbitt, My point was not to boast about someone getting there teeth knocked out, but to stress the importance of following the General Orders that are in place (and for a reason). There was more than one person on that call that was not adhering to "the rules", everybody knows that. My point was this, this time someone lost some teeth, next time it (not following Gen. Orders) could mean someone losing their life. Oh and by the way, I was on that call, and do know the details...

    How do you know? Do you know them/work with them or are you just taking the union line? Not an attack, just a question....

    Hey Wheelman1619! What station in the county do you work ?

    Im both CAREER and VOLUNTEER! And im very proud to say that i am.. If you must know where I work email me and i would love to tell you a few stories about the big city! As far as the union.. They can stick that cant volunteer crap up there @#$!!!@.....

    Now as far as Kentland and Seat Pleasant... Those to stations prob have the most agrresive volunteers you would ever want! When they go on the scene with fire showing and only hold 33.. Hmmmm tells me they love what they do and can hold there own!
    If you must understand the way they RUN! RIDE THERE or shut up.

    If you cant run with the big dogs get off the fireground!

    Just remember boys and girls. We are all here to do the same job... Paid volunteer or scab like me!!

    Peace and be safe ...... Just Remember its a crazzzzy world out there..

    kvfdlife- The point I was trying to make was that if 'garbage pickup was as exciting as firefighting we would never have to pay to have it picked up once a week'
    The police patrolling Kentlands area aren't doing police work for free.
    And this attitude of "we're better firefighters than they are" has to go. You sound like a bunch of bullies in a sandbox.

    13thFiredog::: If you guys could only get the Engine or the Amb. out manned, maybe you could even get the Squad out. But I don't see that happening!!! The only way you guys got the Squad is the Chief is on the Fire Comm.And we all know what you have to do to get something from.(big lips)you know!!No one there would know what to do when they got there anyway.

    Squad 13, sounds almost like a joke. Thats what 13 needs, is another piece of apparatus to add to their understaffed stats. I wonder what Co. 33 thinks?. Well at least the B & W should be safe with 13 on the job.
