    Red face

    My nickname is wrongWAY. I got it driving the engine to a mutual aid fire. They told me to turn left, I did, but they meant my OTHER left.

    I got labeled Break-N-Entry or "B-N-E" because there just ain't no door, lock, or car hood made that I can't open in a snap.

    Remember: It's not the tool, it's the guy that's using it. Practice, practice, practice!

    I've had 2. In my first department, they nicknamed me "Augie", as in "Augie Doggie" from the old cartoon. My dad, who was in the company for 30 years when I joined, was, of course, "Doggie Daddy"

    In my second department, I was turning the engine around in the firehouse parking lot during a thunderstorm at 5am (after returning from a call) when I backed over a dog that belonged to one of our members. I never felt it. We left for another call (a good job) and while cleaning up at another station, I found out about the dog. Evidently he did feel it. It earned me "Lt. Dog Killer".

    I love this job!

    I was Princess Di or Lady Di up until Princess Diana was killed....Somehow after that I became Blondie, only because I have blonde hair, and it's stuck ever since.

    Cool

    My nickname is "CHEECH" because someone in the department thought that this little Italian face looked like Cheech Marin. It's stuck with me ever since.

    In my first DEPT. I was given two nicknames.
    It was my first year on the dept. and on a fire call I couldnt make it up to the top of our water truck. It was slippery and with bunker gear it was hard for me to do. The guys started to call me Lil' Bear Cub.

    Then one one call I was telling the guys a joke and used a good Chinese voice...from that day on they called me GRASSHOPPER and folded their hands and bowed.

    "chitlins"
    Got hit in the head with a bucket of frozen chitlins at a meat truck fire early one morning. Do not try this at home....
    Remember to always wear your helment - you never know when a flying bucket of chitlins will land on your head.

    Cool

    I've been known as "Jump", cause I am always the first one to jump on the truck when the call hits.

    Take care,

    It was the very 1st call I ran with this department. We were in an open-cab pumper & I had put all my gear on & put my work boots up next to me in the seat. When I was squeezing into the airpack my boots fell off the truck. Luckily someone picked them up & returned them. That is how I was named " Shoeless".
