    A squirrel in the context I'm using it in is a person that shows up on fire scenes without our company being dispatched. Freelancing, in other words.
    These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.

    Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.

    We call them woodchucks in vermont, I have even developed a scale of one to five, one being the singal rotator on the dash, five is an individual that looks like there truck is sponsored by whelen, and has lightbar, dashlight, deck lights, grill lights, arrowbar, hide-a-ways, and whatever else you can imagine. I rate around 1.5 - 2. I have been to fire schools in rural green mountain regions where they would be a class 5 woodchuck with sub compact Ford Fiesta type vehicles, mini vans, etc. It's sad really, lights worth more than the vehicle they are on.
    This statements made above do not represent the agency i belong to in any shape or form. So if i say something stupid its just me.

    Do you have anything even remotely intelligent or constructive to say? I take that as a no.

    MalteseMonster said it best, not once, but twice. Now if I may quote you for a second... "Look at your dept. if you can't see the whacker its you..." Well guys, Westside has looked and looked and looked, and just can't seem to find the whacker in his department. Guess what that means?

    Our whacker's vehicle looks like an ambulance stuffed in a chevy truck. Equipped that way too. I always wanted to open the bed cover and see if there is a stretcher in there. This guy though is a good EMT and can run the pump on a structure fire as good or better than anyone.
