    Does pulling up to the scene and saying "Oh Christ" when you see that the blue canaries have blocked the hydrant and/or the front of the house count?????

    Yes, I do pray when going to calls. The first prayer occurs, is when I am cranking the ignition start key to get the pumper started. If you have a cold blooded truck in your station that is hard to start, you know what I am talking about.

    Look, let me try and say this in a way that I hope comes across respectfully, but firmly at the same time.

    Not everyone has the same beliefs as you do. Not everyone prays at all, let alone prays while en route to emergency calls. Your comment that firefighters should have all aspects of their life taken care of, mental, physical and spiritual assumes far too much. I am in pretty good physical shape, working out and getting better every day. Mentally I have prepared myself through training and educating myself. Add my experience to that and I am prepared as I can be for the calls we respond to. I want to spend my response time thinking about the call and what I will be doing when I get there.

    I know right? It seems like at one point in my career at Dalton I went through a 4 month period where everytime I'd take a shower a call would go out. Needless to say, I learned how to take boot camp showers well before boot camp, .

    Not really, unless "oh, God, here we go again..." is a prayer...

    I prefer to spend that five seconds thinking about the call.

    I am not a religious man, so no, I do not pray on the way to calls.

    I agree with others that the time you are spending praying could be better served mentally preparing yourself for the tasks at hand.

    If you feel the need to pray do a prayer at the beginning of your shift about what you may encounter for the day.
