  • Our worst enemy....

    Ourselves.

    It's Friday, end of a normal work week. Just recalling the few headlines I have noticed this past week or so and I wonder about people at times. We are fire fighters. We are the good guys/gals. We are the ones to trust, to respect, to be counted on.

    Yes, percentage wise there are low numbers of fire fighters who cause problems or you just wonder about.

    Headlines I remember....2 or 3 guys charged with fraud in relation to Workers Comp. A few charged with Arson. Questionable photos surfacing. DUI's. Impersonating Police.

    It's not all of us. It's not even most of us. It's few of us.

    Talk to your members. Talk to your shifts. Keep everyone's heads in the right mind set. Watch your new members. Control their enthusiasm. Be a leader.
    "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?

    At least it is not murder, like I have seen in the past.

    Problem is just like any business, the employees are come from the melting pot of life. You get the good and the bad. And some good go bad.

    Yes, FD should do a better job of helpin each other out to be the best person all the way around, that they can be.

      Back in the 50's and 60's the LAPD had a legendary police chief named William Parker. When asked about the issues of some of his officers being corrupt or behaving badly he famously responded:

      We’ll always have cases like this because we have one big problem in selecting police officers…we have to recruit from the human race.
      Same with firefighters and the FD.
      They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

      I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.
