    From what I understand they have the option of wearing 3/4 boots.
    Though, some of those scenes of fire attack were recreated just for the show, usually a lot less fire and smoke machines. Its hard to tell what parts are legit and what is made for tv.

    Default air packs, we dont need no stinking air packs

    this wasnt really what i was hopping it was goin to be like. i was really dissapointed in the show top to bottom.

    i had to chuckle at the car fire scene. they talked about the car fire and how it emits poisious gasses, and then it showed the guys on the line with no packs on.
    Your a daisy if you do.

    Yep, I got that too, but felt the "No BA's in a Car Fire" was a bigger problem. I missed the commentary on that part though. Seems to have been a small case of "Do as I talk, not as I do".

    The BFD has been around alot longer then you have, who cares if the don't wear BA's thats there choice. Are SOPs state its your choice, if you don't stand in the smoke what does it matter. Theres no point to go balls to the walls for a car fire anyway, stand back a little knock the fire down and then put the fire out.

    Who cares? Maybe their wife and kids, maybe the taxpayers that are supplying the equipment and will now be stuck with their healthcare bill 20 years down the road when they develop cancer.

    car fire thread is this way boys!

    Lets not get into their SOP's (right or wrong) on this thread. This is about whether or not we liked the show.
    Personally, I liked it. Sure some of it was obviously staged but overall it was good.
    Now I have a question for you big city guys. 10 bucks for one meal. Jeeez thats seems to be alot of money for one meal. What are they eating? Lobster?
    They might as well have a fancy resturaunt cater for that money.

    In the Cleveland suburb where I work, We usualy keep it to $5/guy/day. That's usualy enough for supper and left-overs for lunch the next shift.
    Must be a cost of living thing for the big cities!

    I saw the first pilot a few months ago but missed this show. Anyone know if they play reruns during the week like they do "Rescue Me?"

    FYI, there is a couple of different threads on this going, so most of my posts have been there. But let me just say a couple of things....This is a reality show based on one firehouse and the guys there. This is NOT a training show. This show is made for the general public and even though most of us (FF's) will watch it, we are not the target audience.
    Our SOP's are for Boston and the problems we deal with. And it has worked for us, longer than most....Remember that the film crew filmed everyday all day and night. Each day they would send 10-15 hours of film to Hollywood and peice things togethere to make a show, 13 in all. We here in Boston had very little editing privleges, so it is what it is.
    As far as the meals go, the other groups are 5 or 6 bucks- it so happens that they are big eaters .
    Stay safe
