  • Probie question...

    Hey guys/gals, I am fairly new to my dept (3 months) and wondering why FF's refer to the stations with the "s" after the the number. Example: "25's" I was going to ask a senior FF but figured I would ask here first. Thanks in advance!

        Generally, it indicates what apparatus is housed there.....Eng 25 is housed there - so it is 25's house...etc.....

            We don't use the plural either.

              That would be the posessive. Plural indicates multiples, posessives have the 's.

                Do not take this the wrong way.

                You have the chance to ask somoene from your department, who understands why the department does things and understand its' traditions.

                Instead you feel it is better to log onto an international forum, whose members have NO idea where you are from, what department it is in question, and most likely do it completely different than your department.

                Ask yourself, did that make any sense?

                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.

                    It probably did at the time. Not wanting to seem foolish about something simple. Give the kid a break. Wait until his 10th post or so...then kick him in the gonads.

                        I'm sorry I hold common sense to a much more valued level.

                        And if you call that "$hit on" you must have paper thin skin.

                            If I were you, which I am not, I would have asked the Officer of my company or some of the members in the company about it.

                            For what it's worth, I always said I 'll being working at 5 Engine or 3 Truck the next day, if I was detailed out, to my wife. Just in case she would want to know!
