    Smile Finally saying hello, from Toronto, Ontario

    Afternoon everyone - I signed up here several weeks ago but haven't had the guts to post before....finally saw other non-FFs here once in a while, so at least I don't feel totally out of place. 8)

    I read the "What colour is your firetruck" thread, and I'd just like to say that one of these days, if I ever have enough money to quit my job for good, I'm going to be the civilian volunteer who offers to ride along and take down license plate numbers....the best piece of advice my dad ever gave me about driving was "Any time you see lights or hear sirens, react as if the emergency vehicle is on its way to save your grandmother: immediately scan your field of vision, get as far over to the right as you can once it's safe to do so, and if you can't move, put your four-ways on right away. They'll know to go around you, but stick your arm out and wave them past anyway, just in case."

    You have jobs that are difficult enough to begin with. Why the morons on the road can't at least *try* to make it easier for you is something I will NEVER understand.

    Get home safely to your spouses & kids tonight, wherever you are.

    Smile Hi

    Hi and Welcome Oyster34

    First let me say thanks for your understanding of
    rules of road conduct and your warm thoughts for all of
    us. Don't be afraid to surf around and ask questions.
    there is a thread known as "greeting from a non-firefighter"
    that you may find interesting. This is a wide world of
    infromation for the emergency services. So don't be shy
    ask and ad any information that you fell may be of use
    to someone else.

    Again WELCOME to forums
    Gods Speed to our Troops!

    If you can't stand the heat, Get out of my way !!!
