    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

      Still both places...
      "A fire department that writes off civilians faster than an express line of 6 reasons or less is not progressive, it's dangerous, because it's run by fear. Fear does not save lives, it endangers them." -- Lt. Ray McCormack FDNY

        ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."

          I've toned down both a great deal.. I rarely have time when I'm at a computer (at work) and at home I usually use my iPad. Interacting with these forums with browser on the iPad is a PITA. Things would be different if either supported tapatalk..

            Just rejoined here after being locked out of my old account years ago. Read both forums frequently, but don't post on either often.
