    Default Fire Fighters don't only fight fires??

    When I am at the fire station I am just like everyone else I clean, take out the trash, wash the trucks, work-out, etc. Thats the way it should be,If an Officer has to ask you to do something than you Don't really want to have the experience of being a fire fighter that bad.

    I usually clean, help move stuff (we're getting floor retiled), help wash the truck, help flow test hydrants, and stuff like that.
    These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.

    Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.

    Our paid guys handle a lot of cleaning and maintenence jobs, because that`s what they`re getting paid for, we don`t average that many calls a day. When I`m down there though I`ll always help out with whatever is being done, or if I`m asked. We used to get the rigs washed too, but now with stage 2 water restrictions we have to stare at the dirt on our white rigs.

    If there`s nothing to do, I`ll go online, watch TV, read something etc.
