    Howdy Jean!

    I can see your relitivley new to the forums here. If you use the search feature near the bottom of the page you will litterally turn up hundreds of threads to answer your question both in this forum and the JR/Explorer forum.

    Stay safe.

    What you are typeing in now is called a "thread" if you go back to where all the subjects are that is called a "forum". If you goto near the bottom of the forum page a search feture is on the right hand side. Type in to that white box keywords like "pocket tools" "what do you carry on your gear" etc.

    The Junior Explorer forum is in the firefighters forum. It is in a box near the top along with the Off duty forum.

    I thought the reason for these sites our for the firefighter to pick each others minds and pockets.
    Pick our pockets huh... Do you see ME PICKING pockets here?

    I don't believe that my posting is any different than the posting in reference to the wedge it with the fire store web connection but i guess that ok right.
    It is different. You own the product your linking them to... where someone else may say, here is where I got this.

    Besides, if you had been here for a while and posted regular stuff, and then came up with this tool and showed it, people might not say anything. YOU'RE ONLY HERE TO MAKE MONEY. Buy Ad space like every other buisness.

    Scott aka Save- I refered to the Fire Store Wedge-it BUT
    I DIDNT INVENT THE PRODUCT NOR TRYING TO SELL IT. I have
    just been using it for several months and love it.

    We walk up and down the stairs and buildings here in the
    Bay Area and always have doors closing behind us and locking.

    So YES, I love the Wedge it and NO, I didnt invent it or
    making money off of it. There is a difference.

    Default Yo...

    If you read Page 1 of this thread, there are people jumping
    on a guy for advertising a product and I even see myself in
    the mix.

    Looks like someone did some quick editing...

    I find its pretty hard to keep Chiefs in my pocket. They are best kept away from combusting things too.
    "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.
