    I'm on the job here in Calgary and I think the condom pick up scheme is a very bad joke. I don't mind going to a school yard and picking up the occasional needle but this is ridiculous. Yet another brainchild of some shoe clerk desk Captain that will not be required to do the job himself. Let the john's do it and let the shoe clerks responsible for this scheme train them to Hazmat Awareness levels.

    Hey oldarff which station are you at? I live across from 2 Station, know a ton of people there (especially B shift), know people at a number of other stations, HQ, FPB and of course the museum. Oh and I know some guys that work at City Hall too.

    Hi! I've been a fire cadet with the Calgary Fire Department for a year and a half now and I have never hade such a great feeling of pride in wearing a uniform that associates me with the greatest fire dept. in Canada. I think that the proposed needle and condom pick-up program mocks the great profession of firefighting. I can understand that a firefighter can tolerate picking up the ocassional needle or condom, but to send out a whole crew (most likely the downtown guys (and gals) from #1, #2, and #11, but I'm not too sure on what the city of calgary has planned) to follow johns and pick up the mess they have left behind is disrespectful to everybody who wears the CFD patch on their shoulder. I hope the city of calgary can find an alternative method that punishes the johns and does not put calgary firefighters in a uncomfortable position.
