    I agree too that one. Its fine the way it is
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    I like to pimp my helmet out just like my ride. It has a strobe on it, just like the orignal Radio Shack version. Four antenna's so my radio will have 3 scanner backups. I have a "I fight what you fear" sticker on the left side, and a "Find'em hot, leave'em wet" sticker on the right. In the front is a Calvin an hobbs with Calvin peeing on a fire. My shield proudly proclaims me as the driver of the support truck.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    My helmet has my goggles, some refelctive tets, and a shield that says firefighter. I wasn't aware a brain bucket required extra gear to perform it's task.

    and a shield that says firefighter
    THAT always cracks me up.

    Like showing up on the Big Red Truck, wearing all the kit and slapping on a BA set wasn't enough of a clue for everyone watching.

    I agree. The people that put all the stickers and what not on thier helmets are usually the DB's of that dept. My favorite sticker I see is the "I fight what you fear " sticker. The funny part is these people have the cleanest gear and helmet on their dept.

    I bought it with my own money but it is great to share your experiences with fellow firefighters, it is great to have video of the incident so you can critique the incident and it also can assist the fire investigators with determining the point of ignition
