    Default It doesn't mean the same thing.

    Reading the Wyoming, Michigan third alarm pointed out the great difference in the meaning of things. Their third alarm would be a working fire dispatch here in Baltimore County.

    The next time someone wants to knock on someone, just remember that their circumstances just might be very different than yours.

    OK. I give up.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    The point is that when you read a story or view a picture the whole thing is relative to where you are and what you have. What was a third alarm for Wyoming would have been a single alarm working fire else where. All to often people on these forums critize people that they know absolutely nothing about. I don't personaly know about every jurisdiction in the country but do personaly know of places where the response would have been from 4 to 30 on 2 to 7 pieces of equipment. Know who and what you are judging before you judge.

    cellblock,

    Seems like not to long ago folks that know nothing about your district were criticizing your use of two seaters. People offer comments on stories and photographs when they know absolutly nothing about the folks they are talking about. I tried to show that and find it amazing that nobody was able to understand it. Same fire, three alarms one place, one alarm another, probably more than three some place else. Sorry to have bothered all of you folks, didn't realize that you would be so nasty.

    The point was that nobody knew where you were trying to go with it or what your point was. If you had said that in your original post, maybe there wouldn't have been people asking........ Nobody was getting nasty, just had no clue what you were talking about or referring to.

    Nah, 77, I think E229Lt was just being a wise*****. A little cynical humor to lighten up the morning!
