    In the last episode, I noticed a former jake from my FD on the show... Billy Benevelii of Rescue 2. Tell him the guys on Marlborough Fire Group 1 at HQ said he was looking good!

    PS: good luck on the District exam!

    I dont call that being "chicken" I call it looking out for your own safety, and using the gear provided to best advantage. Thats why we have the stuff. Earlier in the week when my engine lit up I got a face full because some nice fellow bystander decided to hit it with an air/water can, even as I was using dry chem. The blow back from the water and steam was just lovely.

    My house in Philly is 20 bucks a tour, 2 dayworks and 2 nightworks. It generally doesnt cost that much and the left over goes to the kitty where we spend it as we see fit. I cook 90% of the time and feed 11 guys on around 40-50 bucks. We eat good everytime and eat great often.

    Packs on an auto, not me.

    Good to see the LT. take responsibility last night and require his crew to be packed up on car fires. It takes balls especially when you're a younger officer as he is to stand up for safety. But my hat off to him.
