    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.

    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.
