Bullet Proof Firefighters
And you thought being a First Responder
was dangerous? Now apparently
you aren't safe training either.
I am very glad the FFs who were
in the "line of fire" from the idiot
shooting animals in back yard are
okay.And behind a Senior Center no
less.What gear is this guy missing?
All of them I think,his clutch is
Every city/county has animal
control officers,rescue groups
for animals and Fish and Wildlife,
there's no excuse for this...It
could have easily been a child or
elderly person standing in place of
that FF,and they wouldn't have had
turnout gear on.
Well,Edward of Boonton FD,I am very
glad you are okay.I think you should
call the turnout gear manufacters
and thank them for doing their job well.
I believe they may want you for their next
Ad Campaign...I think you would sell
a lot of gear.Forget Nike...buy
turn out...it may be the fashion
of the future the way things are
Stay low,keep that coat on!

Thanks Becky! I'm sure my brothers in Boonton will appreciate your thoughts.
Now....if I can only find out who boobytrapped one of our fire roads with a pipe bomb....I'd feel better.
Yep...North Haledon, NJ...in the High Mountain Wilderness Park. A pipe bomb....with a trigger device. Thank God it was discovered and detonated safely.

I didn't read about that one. Was it published? Did the state fire marshal distribute it?? In addition to our 2 engines, we also run a brush truck out of our house, this is scary, unfourtunatly, not shocking, but scary.
JoeA positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
