    Default Well...I've heard so much about it..

    After a long time of hearing about the wonderful Illinois forum from my dad (see how long it takes you to figure out who that is), I've decided its time I create my own firehouse account and check it out for myself. So I guess I'm just sayin hi, and introducing myself. I'm Doug, been a paid on call firefighter for almost 3 years from down south. Right now I'm really hoping to go full time some time soon, so if anyone's dept. has some job openings..........

    Oh, man, now I'm really going to have to watch what I say. He'll go telling his mother every time I make some smart remark. I can hear it now: "mom, you oughta see what dad told the guys on firehouse".
    Yeah, djinferno is my younger kid. He's looking for a full time FF job. We'll be in Peoria on Saturday. I'm going along so he can sleep on the way up there. Anybody want to say HI, I'll have nothing to do from 10 - 11:30.
    Adze, don't worry about sucking up to him. He's still young enough that what dad has to say isn't worth much (in some cases). Isn't there some rule that you have to be in the forum for 30 days before you can vote in a poll?

    Adze, you're not even an Illinoisian yet so don't be making up rules like "we don't need no rules". By my count, you've got a couple more days before the voting's done (even though you've got 90% of the votes). You guys aren't hiring out there in New England, are you?

    Hmmm. This perhaps explains the angst in Jack's posts that I aluded to in another thread......

    Or maybe, Jack isn't as passionate about this subject after all?

    P.S. Of a far more important nature: Doug, there's a service called "Fire Hire" that caters to most of the suburbs around Chicago. They send out notifications of departments that are testing. I can get you info if you're interested.

    Default Welcome

    I am finaly getting around to welcoming you here Doug. Nice to see Jack wasn't holding a gun to your head or anything while you voted.
    Whatever you do don't tell mom about the porn in the other thread!
    UNTILL the time is right.

    Any way WELCOME! Maybe we will get back to some serious discussion one of these days.

    Serious discussion?

    I doubt we will ever get there.

    Anyway, Welcome DJ.

    Default Once or twice....

    Mike:
    There has been serious discussion in these forums. Just not recently. I think everyone is still giddy over getting their grants submitted.
    Either that or they got a basketful of Easter eggs and are still feeling the sugar buzz.
    But, if we get a serious one going again, it won't last long with Jay around.
