    I could be wrong.
    You are exactly correct. Station swaps would prevent that from occurring.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    Maybe it's not too late

      Interesting question... which is better, a crew of 3 full time career firefighters, or a crew of 3 full time firefighters and a temporary/intern in the 4th seat?

I can honestly say I do not remember ever, in my time with my career FD, where we rode with 2 rookies in the rear seats.
      Two rookies? probationaries, orange shields, whatever your department calls a person with less than a year of experience in the department, no probably not. But a person with 1.5 years on, and a 3 year veteran sitting next to him? I can see that happening. But totally agree that two newbies in the back is a generally frowned upon practice.

      And we sometimes use acting officers and reserve drivers to cover for the full time people when they are off. I didn't think that was an uncommon practice....but being an occasional fill in is much different than a permanent replacement.
      If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

        That was what happened in my old department.
        They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

        I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

          I guess I missed this comment. Because like I stated in an earlier post, on my career FD, in order to fill in as a driver or acting officer you had to be qualified and approve by the admin. You couldn't just pull Joe Smedley out of a back seat, no matter how many years on the job and put him in the driver's seat or officers seat if he was approved to sit there.
