    Webteam ...

    Why was the "Boston" thread closed.

    Discussing alcohol in the firehouse is a valid topic with differing points of view. Unlike some, there are those who feel that it still has a place under controls and limits, and does not pose the dangers that some seem to think it does.

    It is a valid discussion.

    Didn't you read the reason. It got off topic, Plus it wasn't going anywhere but down.




    "All,

    This thread has gone off-topic from the original topic and therefore is being closed.

      Unfortunately, I think this one was overmoderated. While technically wandering from the letter of the original topic, it was still on-track with the underlying spirit: Public perception of the fire service and what we do within the firehouse when we're not doing explicitly firefighting activities.

      The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

        This may be correct but if you read the whole thread it was drifting far into left field and getting into a debating match.

        The FH Manager made the call, we have to abide by that.

        I still say NO adults beverages in the fire house or its property.

          It appears the WT doesn't think a discussion of Ethics in the fire service is warranted. .

          My guess is that someone got up on the wrong side of bed and it is MONDAY!!!!!. Note to WT, just like most occupation, you do your worst work on Mondays and Fridays.

            I thought that it was pretty far afield... washing cars in a career firehouse to having beer in a volunteer house.

              Very similar in fact. It is about public Relations, Public Perception, and Ethical Behavior.

                You'll argue over just about anything, won't you.

                    No matter how hard you try you just can't fix stupid! But be careful, if you make him mad while he is "tanked" at the station, he'll hit you with his crowbar.
