    Default Think!

    If you are under the age of 18 you should not have any close call stories,
    If you do someone is not doing their job!
    Just a note to the Jr heros out there think before you post! The story you post
    could get your dept and the people that are in charge of you in big time
    trouble!

    Yep I agree with him^^^^^^

    As a Jr. the only thing you should be coming close to is realizing you are not a "firefighter" yet!

    Have to agree with this one.

    No Junior or Explorer should have any sort of close call, unless your like me and slip on the way into the station on ice as the truck is pulling out the door.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    Hey, at least you didn't slip on the pool deck and spend 5 hours in the ER with a concussion. I had to sit out of a F***ing week in the middle of the damn season.


    Luckily I made it to states and swam best times.

    I'm guessing again its just a guess. He thought that since we didn't agree in having close calls and the guy who posted this thought that there was a way to have close calls while being an explorer. He thought is was going to get ugly. (Ok I'm not sure if I even made since lol)

    I guess, but I still don't see the point in it. This was and remains a very calm topic, nobody was really arguing about it. People said their piece on the topic and that is that.

    I could see if the OP had said that, then went on to tell a story like having a near death experience while doing interior. Sure s**t would have definitely hit the fan then, but it's really kind of pointless in this thread.

    Yup. I thought it was pretty calm too.

    On the topic of close calls.... SO!!! All the guys that I am riding along with are hard at work making sure that everything is accomplished. This being my first ride along I am just watching off to the side doing what I am told. Like spin the lettuces or wash these dishes. Lucky dinner was made in time for the super bowl and we all go to watch kick off eating a very good salad. Chicken salad I may add.


    OK ok... I know that was bad... but I'm in a "creative" writing mood.
