    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.

      I know how most of you feel here. As chief in a small town, where daytime help is hard to come by, I have discovered a vast, untappaed resource. I am going to start a fire department to run out of the local tavern. I figure that we will have a sign-in board near the front door, so as the local drunks come stumbling in, we can hand out riding assignments. There will be training videos playing on the TVs (ISO POINTS!!). On Wednesdays, during the fried chicken dinner specials, we'll have weekly training on such topics as: holding your booze during a long barn fire battle, cleaning puke out of your SCBA mask, different hip flasks designs to fit conveniently in your bunker pants, and a host of others. Anybody have any ideas for me, feel free to post them. Now, if I could just get around those pesky DUI laws.....

          I couldn't help noticing......

          ...the originator of this post has yet to reply to offer any sort of identification. hhhhmmmmmmmm....I sure as heck wouldn't talk to whoever it is. Oh yea, just out of curiosity and boredom I checked the profile for the e-mail address he posted....not much info there....DEFINITELY not enough to get me to cough up anything more than my stock answer to the press...."find somebody with a white helmet"
          Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

          Anything found in my posts is soley my opinion and not representative of any other individual or entity.

          You know that thing inside your helmet? Use it wisely and you'll be just fine.

              The ONLY alcohol that has EVER been in our station was brought in by a newspaper reporter who was trying to do a story on alcohol in the fire house....Really!!

                I see our esteemed reporter still hasn't come back to even TRY to identify himself and the publication his "research" is for....... Go Figure.

                              Alcohol In The Firehouse....

                              13 Signs That You Might Be Slightly Intoxicated.....

                              1 The parking lot seems to have moved while you were in the bar.

                              2 You lose arguments with inanimate objects.

                              3 You have to hold onto the lawn to keep from falling off the earth.

                              4 Your job is interfering with your drinking. (For the firehouse- the pager keeps interfering! )

                              5 Your doctor finds traces of blood in your alcohol stream.

                              6 You sincerely beleive alcohol is the elusive 5th food group.

                              7 Mosquitos catch a buzz after attacking you.

                              8 The back of your head keeps getting hit by the toilet seat.

                              9 24 hours ina day. 24 beers in a case- coincidence? - I think not!!!!!

                              10 You can focus better with one eye closed.

                              11 Your twin sons are named Barley and Hops.

                              12 At AA meetings, you begin with, "Hi, my name is...um, er..."

                              13 The whole bar says "Hi"when you walk in.
