    No.....I don't think that I will trust you. You don't seem to be the trustworthy type.

    Well.....which one is it. Is Galls the "only" reading material or are there others....make up your mind.
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    Funny. I'm a volunteer and I've never read galls...EVER! Yet again your posts truly shows your lack of knowledge. Why don't you go "pay the toll" a bit more and stand infront of a semi!

    Since I am employed at three different departments, I have the luxury of having three sets of gear. I leave one set at my FT job, one set at the PT Job where I am a Lieutenant, and I carry the other set in my POV.

    Web Team,

    Do we have to inherit this obscene behavior from a person on your forums?

    Normally I keep my gear at the station but after tonight it will be going home with me. I usually get along great with the career staff but after one smart ***** career Lt. decided he needed room on the rack for the careeer staff and tossed mine in the trash.

    They don't have their own space for their gear? I'd have some words with this Lt. Thats crap!

    I keep a set at the firehouse and a set in my vehicle. The set in my vehicle never gets used because I generally don't like to use a half tank of gas responding to the scene.

    Well the career staff has space for their own gear but they are taking things over and soon this station will be sold to the county. My volunteer department is selling our Station #2 and the remaining volunteers from this station have been "welcomed" to come to and ride at Station #1.

    So my gear will remain in the car and go with me to wherever I go and to what ever volunteer station I can find.

    So then why were they taking over your spot? Doesn't make sense. I think your better off keeping your stuff on yah now like you said.

    here,my relatives are volunteer firefighters so their turnout gears are at the station,in their lockers.

    it is forbidden in France to go on call with your POV.you have to go to the station,and "jump" into a firetruck to go on call.

    "courage et dévouement"

    Default gear

    Kept in POV. The (sub) station I respond out of is rarely occupied, and we breed a pretty good crop of brown recluse and black widow spiders.

    we have bunker racks we keep our gear in next to the trucks.
