    Post Gimmie Some Info!!

    Hey everyone. Would you write down some controversial topics on firefighting, EMT, or both? (Example: The use for an AED in the field versus no use for AED in the field.) I could use some topics that could be debated on. Thanks a bunch fellas/ladies!

    You can always use the "what color should a fire truck be?" to get a party started.
