    Probably the same way you are so worried about fuel costs affecting the fire service.

    Go back to school and knock the dogshyit out of the prof! Tell he or she , until he has done atleast 15 to 20 years in this business, to stick to fooling the school and the students.

            To many idiots in this world to not have fire. They would have to do a lot more than some fire retardant materials, look at all the wildland fires that spread like crazy. To many things that are flamable to fireproof everything. Nice concept though, I will store that one right next to global warming as I stand by for our umpteenth night this year of adverse winter weather here in Tennessee.

                            I don't think it's appropriate to talking about fire "retardant."
                            Logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead.

                              I suspect solar, wind, and tidal energy will be economically viable long before we start fireproofing everything.

                              But yeah ask your professor if he'd rather fall asleep on a bed of hay (sure seems flammable enough) or one of these new foam mattresses knowing it will be set on fire in the middle of the night.

                              It is true there are generally fewer fires nowadays, then again you wouldn't know it from this winter in our region. I've heard a lot of people say fires now are more dangerous however. Meanwhile the job at hand gets ever more complex and expansive.

He stated that with the fire retardant materials that are coming out now a days and who knows what else in the future that one day fire fighters will not fight fires much or at all. Now I understand that they are still a lot of old buildings out there and they will remain there but I am just thinking down the line. We came across this subject when he asked what we wanted to do and I said I wanted to be a firefighter. I guess he was maybe trying to make me second guess it(which im not) or if he was just discussing. But anyways does anyone have any thoughts on this?
