Firefighters/ Junior Firefighters
Gentlemen and Gentleladies,
I am probably fizing to step on a couple of toes, and make some people mad at me, but that is quite alright, freedom of speech right? First off I am not trying to intentionaly make anybody mad at me, or make any enemies, but I see something that really bothers me that I feel needs addressing. I am new to posting on these forums, but I have been doing a lot of reading for awhile and I have noticed certain things. First off I notice that there are some career Firefighters that seem to be bashing the Jrs, no matter what the Jr. is doing or saying, they seem to have a passion for nailing the Jr. There is also some Jr Firefighters that think they are the bomb obviously, and are disrespectful, and only fuel the career guys fire against them. I understand sometimes that maybe this career firefighter might just be trying to impart some of his knowledge on to the jr, but by bashing and criticizing is not the way that it will get done. I used to be a jr ff, and I know that the ones that meant the most to me were the ones willing to take time out and show me what I was doing wrong, and not criticize me for everything that I did wrong. Jrs, you need to start respecting the career fellows, and appreciating their knowledge, and career fellows, you need to change the way you are treating and talking to the jrs, they are the next generation of firefighters, if you run them off, and make them quit, who will fight fire? Also THIS IS THE JUNIORS FORUM, IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT THEY SAY, DON'T COME HERE! (The same goes for the Juniors, stay out of the other forums if you don't like what they are saying.) I genuinly hope I have not made everybody mad at me, but this is how I feel. Stay safe fellows, junior and career!
