    All topics are worthy of discussion over and over. Especially with new comers and changing attitudes and technology. Unforgettably, many feel the fire service is static and never changes. Couldn't vote because you didn't consider that everything is worth talking about over and over. Especially the inability to drive and avoid wrecking the equipment.

                  Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

                  "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


                  Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

                        There you have it... Imagine all the bandwidth that would be gained if volly lights (in any topic whether it be need them or not, how many, where to put them, what brands, what models, what colors, laws/rules & regs, etc) was not discussed at all????

                          There should be a separate forum for "POV Lights"!

                              What about "all of the above"?
