    DO A SEARCH BEFORE YOU POST SOMETHING!!

    This is already being discussed in a current thread....... Just do a search on Whacker

    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    This coming from the kid with a response lawn mower....

    I think FF1219 should be numero uno. He seems to above and beyond the requirments for first place.

    Default Not a slam, but the truth.

    A whacker is someone who is so over-board-gung-ho over being a firefighter that they miss the real reason for being in the fire service in the first place. A person who feels appearance is right up there (or over) performance. A person who has all the answers but can't remember at what fire they learned them at (because they weren't there). A person, in short, who only socializes with other whackers because nobody else can stand to be around them. They erroneously feel they must eat, sleep and breath firefighting to become a better one and that the only good firefighter is the one everyone is looking at going "ooooh, look at the fireman".

    Basically it is someone so engrossed in the service as to have no other form of life without it.

    Default Seen 'em, no use for 'em

    Met a guy once who was a vollie on a department that ran about 30-50 calls a year. This guy was a BLS-First Responder and he had purchased (on his own) a military surplus tactical ambulance, gotten it painted fire-engine red, put about $1000.00 worth of Code-3 lighting on it (which he would tell you he only used when 'parked at a scene' since it was illegal to run code-3 lighting on a POV in that state... riiiiiight) and outfitted it for treatment of 10-15 trauma patients out of the Gall's catalog.

    He wore a quasi-uniform 100% of the time (Black steel-toed boots, navy blue slacks and his dept.'s semi-official navy T-shirt... with matching baseball cap). On his belt he always had a pager, Maglight, 16 channel scanner (to keep up with what the 'careers' in the county were doing) and "hero-holster" with 3 sizes of bandage scissors, 3 sizes of tweezers, 4 sizes of hemostats, and 3 rolls of medical tape in different sizes on it. I swear to God, this custom-made leather contraption went half-way around him!

    I guess that's what they call a serious "Whacker!" But to hear other members of his dept. tell it, he was invaluable. Hell, his POV/response rig was better equipped than their first out rescue!

    And to give credit where credit might possibly be due, maybe to his little vollie department out in BFE he was "The Man." But if someone like that ever showed up at a call I was on, he'd be sent about 3 miles down the road to do traffic control so fast nobody would ever see him!
    Fire service survival tips:
    1) Cook at 350...
    2) Pump at 150...
    3) When in doubt, isolate and deny entry...
    4) When in trouble, claim lack of adult supervision.

    Default Would this fit??

    A few months ago while I was in the states I came across a firefighter who displayed the following: Not one, Not two, but THREE badges on his uniform. He had one on his shirt. One on his belt. And one on his windbreaker/jacket. There was a fourth one on a bag he was carrying. Would this be included in the definition of a wacker???

    The guy with the "ambulance" ranks right up there with the weirdo cop-wannabes who buy surplus Crown Vics and outfit them with scanners, guns, and their own personal German Shepard, then drive around town riding people's asses like they're some kind of super cop. We don't really call fire-nuts whackers around here...I had never heard that term used in that context before joining Firehouse.com forums. We just call them "ate up" around here. A neighboring department had on it's team at one time a fellow who drove a small, beat up import car with two huge gumballs on the top-rear of the vehicle. They didn't even set level on the vehicle, due to the roof line slanting into the hatchback lid. Now, that's ATE UP.
