    Three volunteer firefighters, two from the Bladensburg Fire Company and one from Kentlands, were suspended. Officials said the firefighters were "pushing and shoving" each other outside the burning house. The fire department is investigating the incident.
    This is a cut and paste from the original report as posted at the beginning of this thread.
    But yes, the other subsiquent articles and the t.v. news report do seem to point more towards the Kentland hooligans. The "smoking gun" per se is the fact that the kentland thugs where the only ones NOT to experiance any SCBA problems.

    Been going on for decades. Before I went permanently on the disabled list, my family worried more about the PG hooligans (both inside & outside the FD) than the incidents themselves.

    George couldn't be anymore right than that....

    ..I believe another incident occured between Kentland and Career Personnel from Bladensburg a few years ago when repordedley Kentland guys sucker punched Bladensburg Career Guys and knocked an officer down a flight of stairs just so they could steal the line. Forget where I read that but I'm not suprised. -- And give past incidents where Kentland has been the center of attention I can only imagine that an engine being parked on a hose line wasn't accidential.

    There are Kentland Members who possess the I'm better than 'thou attitude because I'm from Kentland 33. Well Kentland Firefighters are no diffrent from DCFD guys, Baltimore Guys, or the eight cousins running a budget reduced volunteer firehouse in southern Mississippi. Companies around me try to act like Kentland {at least in my area both NJ and Delaware } right down to the live-in volunteers that are career firefighters elsewhere. {MY GOD GET A FRIGGIN' LIFE ! } -- It'll be nice to see where this Drama ends up. That's all this is more Drama with in the volunteer fire service that started over petty horse sh**.

    It does not sound like a Career / Volunteer issue someone said the FF that is suspended from Kentland Fire Company also turned off a Volly bottles to and the word is that he is a Career FF with DCFD.

    Amazing,... any time something in these forums get posted that was in "the news", everybody trips all over themselves saying that the will wait for further info before commenting on or crucifying any of the "brothers".

    Why is this one any different?

    3 pages so far, and not one comment to that effect.......

    Hmmm..... maybe because the accused are vollies?

    I agree that there should be no "crucifiction" of ANY department until facts come out.

    However, I KNOW FOR A FACT that this stuff goes on down there weekly if not on a daily occasion. Maybe not as intense as this, but it goes on. It is about time it was BLOWN OUT to the media so this TOTALLY INSANE COWBOY B.S. can be stopped.

    I have heard previous stories of that area of PG County (NOT ALL OF PG) and their cowboy bullsh*t from several different sources, about several different departments in that area. It is not limited to any ONE or all THREE involved departments.

    NONE of these stories should impress ANYONE! EVERY FIREFIGHTER, PAID, VOLUNTEER, PART-TIME, WILDLAND, MILITARY or whomever should be COMPLETELY DISGUSTED by this incident if only ONE of the several accusations are true! For that matter, they should be disgusted by ANY incident that is even REMOTELY RESEMBLES this. The ONLY reason this area of the country still pulls this horse sh#t BS is because it attacts attention. It is the same concept as the kid acting out to get attention.

    This is COMPLETELY ASSININE and not what the fire service is about. We work together to get the job done. I am just as aggressive of a firefighter as the next guy, if racing into a box is your thing (and for many FFs it is) but if you are beat into the box or someone else is working a line then work to help them put the fire out and get the job done. To work against them to get the glory is nuts! Who do you think you are impressing?

    Saying things like:
    "Boy, we sure showed Engine ____ by shutting off their bottles!" or
    "We got that fire, did you see how I knocked the mask off of that guy from _______, and took his line!" "He'll be alright, I only burned his face!"

    If saying these things and patting each other on the back for doing this cowboy BS is what you need to call yourself a firefighter, then take your ACT and DISBAND your company before you KILL someone! You are an Assh*le! You are no more a firefighter than the sh*thead square-rooters, scumbags, know-it-alls and been-there-done-that's that we all LOATHE!

    ANYONE who thinks that this is "the right thing to do" or partakes in this type of behavior should promptly turn in your resignation, head to your local recruitment office, enlist in the military and ask for the front-lines! Aggressive attitudes in firefighters are a great quality to a limit. But if this is your gig, your talents would be better off in Baghdad or Musil, Iraq!

    Get your fuc*ing head out of the clouds and get with the program the rest of the country on. End the cowboy BS before you get someone killed!

    FireCompanies.com should cancel ANY department's website that contributes or promotes this type of behavior. Companies like this take pride in their website and use it as a mechanism to spread this BS behavior!

    TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!

    A "Good" fire is not measured by how big it is, but by the fact that everyone is going home safe, and that we possibly learned something new about firefighting. Member:IACOJ
