  • Alcohol in the firehouse

    I am a journalist working on a story regarding alcohol in the firehouses. I understand that this is a very controversial issue with members of the fire community that are both for the consumption of alcohol in the firehouse and some who are against it. I would be interested in hearing from anyone on either side of this issue.

    Please feel free to email me with your comments and stories.

        Can I give him a taste?

        Ray:
        Wiser words were never uttered. But I would like to point our journalist to the recent statement released by the International Association of Fire Chiefs. I think that it is a bold and courageous statement and stand on this issue.
        That's it; I have nothing more to add.

            RIIIIIIIIIGHT!?!

            mty1066 a first time poster seeks info for a story on alcohol in the fire service. Doesn't identify who he is, who he represents or what his motive is.

            I agree with E40FDNYL35.

              As others have said, with no identification or verification process, etc, no comment other than, "Go and search the archives of these forums..."

                Lutan, even with identification or verification I would be very reluctant to say ANYTHING to a member of the press. "Mr. Murphy" says it's inevitable that what you "say" is not what ends up in print, journalists are famous for misquotes, misinformation and generally "tweaking" a story to suit the purpose. I have seen that happen in our area recently with the Metchosin incident, trial and sentencing by public opinion brought on by the media

                    It is only a matter of hours before some bozo answers this post with something like..."my department NEVER had alcohol in our station and we are the best because of it blah, blah, blah.

                    Pres. Gonzo, I call for a vote on Brother Ray's motion!

                      Why a vote? I'll make it an executive order!

                          Personally, I wouldn't even have given up the archives.

                          Has anyone else noticed in the past week especially, our el presidente has been hitting the nail on the head with SHORT, SWEET and to the point statements like this one?
