    Default Top 10 List

    I Got this in an e-mail today:

    I guess the FEMS stands for Fire&EMS (ugh!) but what the he<< is an ERT????

    Top ten signs your fire department is circling the bowl:

    10. Instead of actually being safe, you just write “Keepin’ it safe” on the rigs.
    9. Instead of using proper spelling and grammar, you just write “Keepin’ it safe” on the rigs.
    8. You have a paramedic for union president.
    7. You hired an outside fire chief from someplace you’ve never heard of.
    6. You’re so desperate to hire people, you lower the written entrance exam passing score from 70% to 60%.
    5. You’re so desperate to hire people, you lower the written entrance exam passing score from 60% to 50%.
    4. You’re still so desperate to hire people, you lower the physical agility test...Awww, what the hell, you just do away with the physical agility test.
    3. Your “training academy” has more condemned buildings than the South Bronx.
    2. You go from calling it the Fire Department to calling it the Fire/EMS or FEMS Department.
    1. You don’t even care enough about firefighting to call your firefighters “firefighters” anymore... “Hi, I’m an ERT from the FEMS department.“
