    Angry Alcohol & The Fire Service

    I FEEL THAT IT IS A REAL SHAME THAT IN THE YEAR 2003 WE STILL HAVE INDIVIDUALS IN THE EMERGENCY SERVICES THAT STILL DO NOT HAVE A CLUE. IT IS NO LONGER THAT THING TO DO (DRINK THEN GET BEHIND THE WHEEL)HOW MANY TIMES DO WE GO TO A VEHICLE RESCUE AND ALCOHOL WAS INVOLVED? IF YOU CHOOSE TO DRINK, WHICH YOU DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO, USE YOUR GOD GIVEN BRAIN AND STAY OFF THE APPARATUS. EVERY DAY OF THIS MANS LIFE HE WILL THINK OF THAT YOUNG LADY WHO WANTED TO HELP PEOPLE, WHO WANTED TO BECOME A FIREFIGHTER. HE WILL THINK THAT SHE WILL NEVER BE A MOTHER, SISTER OR AUNT TO ANYONE, ANYMORE, HER FAMILY WILL NEVER HAVE THE JOY OF WATCHING HER WALK DOWN THE AISLE FOR HER GRADUATION OR EVEN HER WEDDING (IF SHE HADBEEN GIVEN THE CHOICE TO MARRY) ALL THIS AND MORE GONE NEVER TO BECOME A REALIZATION, BECAUSE THE DRIVER DIDN'T CARE ENOUGH ABOUT HER OR THE PEOPLE IN HIS COMMUNITY, I SAY THIS BECAUSE HE CHOSE TO DRIVE KNOWING HE WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE. AS THE DRIVER IT WAS HIS RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE HER WEAR HER SEAT BELT. I HOPE THAT THIS IS NOT A COMPANY PRACTICE, IF IT IS STOP IT NOW. THE DAYS OF ALCOHOL IN SODA MACHINES IS GONE. I AM SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS

    Question ummm?????

    i'm not quiet sure if your telling a story or just ranting. but i do have to say i totally agree with you. i don't care if you've had a sip of beer thats all it takes you don't need to be anywhere nere the fd. and if anyone in my station ever showed up while i was there and i smelled alcohol i would report them right away.
    there is nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer!!
