    Well, for me it was my Grandfather and 2 uncles who were all CFD and all Truckie. Well one of my uncles has been bounced around a bit. But my other uncle was on a Truck Co., and now hes on a Tower Ladder. My grandfather was on Truck 2 (downtown) for 25 years, then he was a batallion cheif for 5....heh. You just have to love having heritage in this business.

    Their are two types of firefighters:
    1. Those who are truckies.
    2. Those who want to be truckies!

    Nope....the word firefighter means someone who actually "fights" fire....and that would be Engine Men.....will someone remind me how many fire go out by beating it with a stick?

    HA! Its easy to find it.....If its out the windows....thats a no brainer....and the truck knows thier place....out of my way and usually behind me....or..usually leaping over my head because its chased them down the hall and the "little nozzle" couldn't handle it....so go back on the couch truckie...Fires go out without trucks....btw, if you can get it with the can....then it wasn't a job.

    Vinnie you're good. You have a distorted imagination but you are good. I needed a good chuckle this morning.
