      Open Door Policy

      After reading all of this (Why I don't know. It must be like watching a train wreck, just can't turn away).
      It appears to me that the system is working fine.
      This exceptional person was allowed to apply to a FD, and was found out that there is more to becoming part of something than simply filling out all the forms.
      With the attitude she has shown just on this forum. Can you imagine working with her, or God forbid, trusting your life to her?

      If having an open door policy means allowing every whack job membership, then "Close the door"

      Thank God she doesn't even operate an automobile.

          Tiller, if you ever figure it out, let the rest of us in! We're all pretty confused...

            I thought Firehouse.com got...

            I found two different web sites, my posts and then what looks like the same message board with my posts and bunch of other posts that don't make a bit of sense.

            What have I been doing besides a Statewide Open Door Policy reform? Things much better, for expample, Russian history long before any Enemy at the Gate movie of WWII, as the Scythians of Siberia lived a good life with many acres, riches, and ruled their teritority (sp?). How much would you pay to have dinner with such people, know what they really looked like, what they really wore, how the sounded, spoke their language and English, and interacted with others?

            Kind of makes an Open Door Policy redicule to what some people want to make it, instead of what it can do, prevent, and so foruth.

            I call it movie making that is a little different than what it was before, but is about the same, and I remember some movies concerning this matter, so is some one asking me to investigate, pretend I'm someone else, visit, travel, look up, find, or make myself look like more of a fool?

            Ah, what a better movie... What I haven't been through and put the trash on the internet for everyone to read, not qualities of a good EMT/Fire Fighter unless something was wrong, so I hope someone inquired becasue I had a lot of things going against me at the time I re-applied as a member at the Kitzmiller Vol. Fire Department, and from what I learned as a young woman from the older fire fighters that are no longer there even when I had quit and later re-applied, I stand by my word that I would never giver them the couritsey, or the word for feeling proud of having me as a member, or re-apply becasue they knew me then as one of the old fire fighters from the old school of taking a gruge to the gave by doing nothing and being nice to people who don't deserve it. By the way, I was asked to join KVFD becasue they were looking for EMTs, so I did not go down to an all male organization that was hard work and apply, and was given a run around by them not following by-laws, delayed my application and vote by at least an extra month from my memory probably because they didn't think I was serious and had to face the first official female in the fire department.

            I do my own fire fighting, prevention, and safety, so that if the time comes I have less of a risk of needing them, but can always ask the dispatcher to send someone else becasue I am a bitch. I'm sure they would like to put those movie making skills to test by just listing to the scanner, wouldn't they? It's just a big joke about movie making, I like to kid on the internet, so don't think I'm too much of a nut or crazy.

            Got to go, everyone was not interested in this policy, as the county administrator gave me an opportunity to talk to one of our county commissioners later on after the election year, but I wasn't ready and probably said something to the effect that I had nothing to say becasue of what I had been through and been turned down by them previously, as other lawmakers and organizations had done.

            It gets worse with a trip down state with fire depatments and even majoring in Fire Science, so I don't recommend it to anyone. I post on www.wellstonfroum.com/4d for more information on the complaints, even for firehouse.com and firehouse.com chat. You will never believe the terrorism for an open door policy, either. An open door policy does not mean that everyone can join, so grow up.

            Sincerely,
            Becky

              huh? you talk about movie making, and then go totally off base. I can tell you right now, if you applied to my FD, based on what you posted, I'd be hessitant, to bring you on too.

              I think that your complaint is that you applied to a department and two years later, were not accepted on as a member. and your ****ed about it. ok, I can understand that, but I must ask this: Why don't you just apply to join another department?

              last I checked MD had no residency requirement to be on a volunteer FD. It was all covered by duty shifts. so, why not just join another FD? ie, not the one that didn't accept you?

              or if you do have a complaint, put it in writing, and submit it to the commisioners. but make sure it is coherent, because if it is anything like what you post here, it will be ignored because it is too confusing to read.
              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!

                I wasn't off base,...

                it just dosen't fit in with all the other comments that are off base, but somehow everyone will know what I am talking about and just post something even more off base, so it's useless.

                "so, why not just join another FD? ie, not the one that didn't accept you?" That's what someone wanted me to do, but I didn't becasue something was up, and I didn't like it and had some instinct that something was wrong or not right. It's not about residency laws in Maryland; we just have to live within the 1st due response area of the fire department, generally. There is no other organization I can join. Of course, things might be different than before, but back then my parents gave me money to be an active memeber of a volunteer rescue squad, I was younger and felt better, and what makes me any different for service any where else? I had hoped to take the EMT couse, but could not afford it to go somewhere else.

                I think that money should be shut off for not having an open door policy, as in a real and fair open door policy. We have a **** poor policy here in Maryland where the President signs a piece of paper certifiying that they don't descriminate, but a manditory open door policy even with that certification would be more appropiate, such as proving that by-laws and protocol state, spell out, and identify how an orgainzation receiving public money operates to prove lawfullness.

                More people means more people working to raise money, more people to answer calls, and more people to be a part of a community service, and probably other things that are beneficial.

                I probably would have been o.k. if it were not for asking a 4D question and applying for Deputy State Fire Marshal. It's a long story.

                My movie making. It's just a good imigination, a fun place, to explore and do adventerous things, investigate history, be other people, actually be there, and it can feel real, has many different ways it works and what it requires for it to work and no it's not nuts, crazy, or any other disorder, so it's just like kidding around. It's just different now, but sometimes I can get it back to what it used to be, as what I am is probably more what people had a problem with, such as a fighter, tough, and it's a small world.

                I didn't mean to post about having dinner for a price. It's just I met some really bad people on the internet and some evern worse local people that got hooked up with them, and again it's a long story. It's about running my own history and heritage business with a love of history, investigating things, adventures in the mountains, and so foruth, such as having dinner with me, at least two Scythians with my movie making and nothing was ever wrong, as to movie making was only for certian times, just not all the time or out right acting and too much goofing off, not to mention no bad, ill, or negative effects only in self defense or to change attitudes, get people what you want them to do such as in a movie role; again it's just a good imigination, accurate, linguistic, and like playing a role to bring the past to the present or the present to the past, or what ever you might want to do, as that was what made it vonerable for the people I met on the internet and the local people involved. Hope that dosen't sound stupid or ruin my family name, or bring a burdon for anyone in my family to bear that they might not want or want people to think less of them becasue it's goofy and becasue of me posting on the internet, considered stupid, and could easily be considered the wrong things. From what I just described, how in the world one would be a target for a tremendous amount of bad records, a large amount of debt, a lot of stress, pain, and worry, would be almost impossible and very difficult for me to prove, so just posting becasue a lot people all ready know the situation and what has went on in the past 4 or 5 years since I asked my 4D question and applied for a job.

                From what I just wrote, having about 14 years previous experience as an EMT, 8 as a fire fighter, and a good service record, as I thought everyone had movie making, might have used it to help people, for emergencies, and so foruth, without any problems or causing any problems, what might be some reason to vote me out of an organization or anyone in the fire, rescue, and ambulance service to use me, take advantage of me, or to harm to me? Again, it's about proving things, so consider it a hypothetical to think what people might have been up to, doing, or gaining. Ask around in Garrett County, Maryland. I bet you could ask around in lot of places.

                Actually, I had a nice dinner, and I'm sure as I would put it, Siberia's Scythians and other people probably had a nice dinner with at least on exception with movie making capabilities. You know I kid a lot on the internet, so you don't know if I'm nuts, just kidding, or pulling your leg. Maybe it will be part of a real movie some day, this dinner.

                Got to go. I'm sure I didn't just start getting these responses for no reason, so I consider it a dead issue becasue really, no one took it seriously, anywhere, and with the way I am, I would not re-apply, so it's on the back burner and up to someone else. I had posted some complaints on the 4D message board about my fire department, and for something I would sue, have licenses revoked, certifications revoked, Inspections, audits, and so foruth for other things and not for just being voted out, again it was only a complaint as my statement would be enough to bring suspesion (sp?) for an investigation, even for other fire departments, just regular citizens, and other people and organizations in connection or involved. I know I don't have to post anymore, just ask around.

                My EMS days and my Fire Service days. How time flys as it's been about 7 years since I was an active EMT/Fire fitghter with my old fire department.

                Interesting enough, as me being voted out and all the stuff I put on the internet has effected people in my family, what people say and think of them, or how my actions and posts can effect them in years to comes as in what I do with life will also influence that, I got out my old nursing supplies from when I was in nursting school and played paramedic with two little boys. We just used some tape, IV bags and tubing only, got some wood slints, did blood pressures, got a blanket for a neck brace, bandages, and the things kids can play with the learn first aid and EMS. I'm sure when the fire department comes to their school to teach fire prevention or their friends and clasmates discuss their Dad's, Mom's, or relatives involvement in the fire department, calls, or functions, I'm sure if someone in those two little boy's family that might have been voted out would some how know or be told that it might effect them to where they feel less about themsleves, not accepted, or some how at at fault becasue someone in their family got voted out. So the moral of the story is to do better than every person at that fire department, not only financially, morally, but with anything to do with fire, rescue, or EMS without joining as a retired member, not so much as member that was voted out, kind of goes for fire service organizations, too, and teach those two little boys how to handle themselves, who to avoid, how to be safe, get voted in if they want to join some day, and do things at home with them like expections, cleaning, hose rolls, look at Fire fighting books to teach them in advance, good behavior, good ethics, and so foruth.

                    Wow.

                    I get that she's ****ed because she was rejected for membership in a fire department (or maybe more than one??) in Maryland. I get that she proposed some sort of changes in membership rules to someone in power somewhere in Maryland and must have been ignored or rejected...

                    ...and then we start talking about nomads who roamed south-central Asia in the first few centuries BC (that's who the Scythians were, as best I can tell), movie making, some sort of family melodrama (real, anticipated or imagined...I don't know which), and some other stuff I can't even piece together.

                    I've seen some cryptic and/or disorganized stuff on the Internet before, but this thread may just be the all-time winner. I can't even offer anything constructive here because I'm not quite sure what the point of all of this is.

                    Does this thread come with English subtitles, or something??

                        they can go right ahead and delete it. I am not an EMT or fire fighter anyway, really will not put up with the bull____, and I'm sure if you guys can't get history, movie making, and so foruth, then you are losers, too, probably at fire fightering, too. There are better things, other ways, and a misfit just staying off this message board not being bothered with these posts or the open door policy, isn't there? I feel better not reading this or postig here, as I do not intend to be a fire fighter again or have anything to do with fire, rescue, EMS, or anything medical.

                          I have a Bachelors degree in history from an accredited university. so I probably know more about history than you do, including both times Russia was invaded. Both my college roomates were film students from one of the best television radio and film schools in the nation, so I know a little about that. and since you're not an EMT or a Firefighter, and I'm both, I'm betting I know a little bit more than you do about this topic (and Bones and Bob probably knows more about fire than I will ever know). Yeah, you want to call me a loser, go right ahead, if it makes you feel better about yourself......

                          Probably a good idea on both counts. 1) It's probably better for your sanity and 2) it's probably better for those of us in emergency services who can make coherent sentences, as well as for the patients who you would be treating if you were to go back into Fire/Rescue services.

                          btw becky, you resurrected this thread. if you want it to die, just stop posting in it. it will drop down into the archives, and will never be brought up again. or you can just post in the main forum, and everyone (including many of the heavy hitters) can see how you post, and you can get ****ed at them because they can't understand a word you say either.
