    Good to hear. Sounds like he is a pretty reasonable guy.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    They aren't listed on scene, they're listed as station stand-by and class is noted. Stand-by counts against your percentage of attendance. They are required to review the log on their school nights and sign it or they don't get paid.

    Yeah I realize now it wasn't scene. Still though, even marking them on stand-by we would get screwed. Little different for you guys though where you obvously get paid.

I have been to three calls.
    They can kick you off for whatever they want. Usually they are a little more understanding in cases like yours, however just bust your butt when you do make calls, and show that you want to be there. More than likely you will be ok.

    for ya'll arguin bout markin on scene in the log books...try using an EA column, or excused absence, class, work, out of town for legitimate reasons, sick...ne reason you cant make it to the station for the call other than you heard the pager but were too lazy to go...however, the out of town doesnt count for bein a few miles away, n the sick doesnt count for colds...it has to be reasonable...n nobody gets screwed for marking guys on scene when they arent, or on station when they arent
