    Post Firefighter nicknames

    I know this has a link but whats some of the station's guys nicknames
    like mine are: Ox(cause i'm big 6 ft 6 300 lb), the kid(i'm 20 yrs old), Big Bird(cause my waterball gear is bright yellow), probbie(cause i'm a rookie fireman but i'm a volunteer and i'm still a probbie)(i never knew we had probbies in vol. depts)

    Oh boy, you just had to go there didn't ya. Well here we go again, and I'm happy that I'm gonna be the first, so I can beat everybody to it. Well we have this one guy whos only been in the service for a couple of years, he's a pretty big guy and he's real hairy, so we call him "LINK" as in the missing link. Oh yeah, he's not too sure weather he want's to be a medic or a firefighter yet, so he's all gung-ho on everything. He's been there, seen that, knows it all, well needless to say, he's always getting hurt and he's pretty much the shift joke......
    So from this day forward, he has a new nickname....we decided to call him...
    ................."MAPLEWOOD"...............

    Sorry, couldn't help it, I'm serious though, He'll never figure this one out.... Hey MFD, at least you can say that you've pretty much been the spice in our lives the past couple of days.... Take care..

    Mine is "Stump" because I'm short and thick. 5'-6" and 210 lbs. That's not fat. Some tried to rename me to "Bull Dog" but it didn't stick like "Stump".

    Thumbs up

    Well, Woody...

    HELL YEAH!!!

    I think the lack of dental repair in your region may be due to the fact that you are wearing all of the gold??? As for names, for your perusal, Oh Prez:


    Mucker (SFPO)
    Inspector Fluffy (FPO, likes to give group hugs)
    Captain Impact or A & W Rootbear due to walking style (350lb man)
    Crusty or Sparkplug (Don't give a crap Captain)
    Woodenshoes (Dutch Captain)
    Sweetpea (Captain)
    Cradlerobber (45 yr old Capt. with 20 yr old girlfriend)
    P**kerhead or Hulk Hogan (Captain with closed mind and looks like Hogan)
    Lynchmob or Weiner (Captain that whines)
    Roysie (Captain)
    Muffin or Klinger (Feminine FF'r)
    Bozzo (FF'r)
    Tim the Toolman or Timbo (FF'r does lots of autoex)
    Mapleman or Sapman (Maple sugar FF'r)
    Klunk (dense FF'r)
    Bubbleboy (Doesn't like to get dirty FF'r)
    Bart or Bert (Bad spelling FF'r and can't spell own name or Bret)
    Jeffro (Backwoods FF'r)
    Markus, Mouth, or Drago (FF'r, because of how he looks and never shuts up)
    Jumbo (FF'r, was Jimbo, but grew to Jumbo)
    Shortc**k (FF'r as it rhymes with his last name)
    Herb (FF'r, real name is John)
    Emmer (FF'r, part of last name and due to Emmer gency)
    8Ball (FF'r that is bald)
    Stumpy (Short FF'r)
    Ding (Slow minded FF'r)
    Laker (FF'r, due to last name)
    MG (Machine Gun), Postal, or Prozak (FF'r with an attitude and expect him to allow for quick seniority changes)
    Mittsy (FF'r, Last name)
    Herringchoker (FF'r from east coast with accent)
    Tank or Pumper, Great Pumpkin during hunting season (FF'r who is HUGE in size)

    There are a couple of others, but I am safe. Seems that as I can dish out what I take, no one has tagged me yet!

    I was just given one today after sliding on ice off the road in my POV on the way to the station for a house fire. no damage just a close incounter with a chain link fence However i did make the first in engine and while doing overhaul of what turned out to be a chimney/partion fire one of the Lt's looks @ me and says "i've got a nickname for u now, CRASH" it could be worse, its yet to b seen if it sticks.
