How should I inform the battalion chief and his superiors that he is full of it?

  • How should I inform the battalion chief and his superiors that he is full of it?

    I am a probationary firefighter in a paid major city department but I already know more about firefighting than most of the clowns running this circus. I wanted to gain urban experience before settling down for a career in the suburbs. Before enrolling at the academy I already attained degrees in fire science, fire technology, and fire administration. As a volunteer I earned my FF1, FF2, EMT-P, EVOC, HazMat Tech, USAR, Advanced Vehicle Rescue, Swift Water Rescue, High Angle Rescue, Pump Operator, Aerial Operator, Fire Inspector 2, and Fire Officer 4 certifications.

    The problem is the battalion chief who oversees my engine company, its brother ladder company, and several others. The only reason he even has his job and was promoted is because this department is rife with nepotism and union cronyism, His father is a retired chief of department, grandfather was a battalion chief and his uncles and brothers are or were were lieutenants and captains with one being a LODD. The guy is a tactical buffoon who does not know a Storz coupling from a Stokes basket. He has regularly put multiple companies at risk due to his unsound judgement and blatant disregard for accepted firefighting practices and the department's own standard operating procedures. Next time he gives a ludicrous order I would like to tell him to his face that he is full of it as well as inform the chief of department and the fire commissioner however I do not wish to ruin my thus far illustrious career. How should I go about this?

    Either didn't get the answer he was looking for, or just a troll...

    I like how FyredUp continues to follow me around like a little puppy dog. Thanks for quoting him in that exchange.

    If you were half the man you claimed to be, you'd go up and tell the BC what an idiot he is the next time he screws up. I would love to be there to watch what would happen to you probie.

    This post and the one above it prove this guy is a troll...perhaps even working for FH.com to increase post count.

    If his "paid major city department" is anything like mine the guys would crucify him. There is a rank structure. There is a chain of command. There are some people who get to question a Battalion Chief. Generally they are Deputy Chiefs's or staff chiefs. At the minimum they are very senior company officers or firefighters. It simply isn't the place of a probie to even have an opinion on a BC, never mind actually verbalizing that opinion. And virtually every member of the department understands this.
    I repeat. He/She would be effing crucified.

    Again, the next time he's in your station, take him aside and tell him what you think. Just let it all out.

    I doubt you will because I truly doubt that you own a set of balls. Sorry Dude, but what you are saying here is nothing less than gross insubordination. If you told the Chief what you have written here you little puke would be gone. So grow a pair and tell him, but I doubt that you will.
    The department chief should be gone for tolerating this dangerous battalion chief. I am more than qualified to take his job. I will stand in front of the chief, grab my crotch, and tell him to insubordinate this.

    The headline here at FH.com if he ever did would read "Probie Puke laughed out of the Fire Service."
