    What's that supposed to mean? What are the two wrongs?

    ... and what's w/ the "no use" comment? I have nothing against paid guys ... I just don't understand some of the stuff the unions do sometimes. If volunteers do something stupid, I call it out. If I think a union does something stupid, I say so.

    So what's up?

      Using a fire truck to propose is wrong, as is building a house on duty. The link you posted says it all. I dont understand what the Union does at times either, but imagine if I posted something like...If Volunteers only drank 2 beers a day would it still be wrong to respond to calls? ...Would it start trouble? You bet it would....

        Okay ... I see your point now, sorry about that.

        The point of putting "paid" in the description was to specify that the firemen were receiving compensation to do something else. If a qualified volunteer crew took an engine somewhere to do something like this, I wouldn't see it as such a big deal (as long as they were available for calls and not wasting taxpayer money) because they're not receiving compensation to do something else. Did that make any sense?

        I did not mean to single out "paid".

            There's more to this story- part way through proposing, they did in fact get a call, and in the rush to get away, they forgot...

              I hate when that happens.
              "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?

                        wannabe, thats what happens when the hose is still in the hosebed and it gets charged. Thats what happens when you ask the probie to do something.

                          If that happened in our department, everyone would get a 3 hour chewing.

                            I think it is a great way to propose!

                            I stopped a medivac stretcher pt, and crew, on their way to the helicoptor to propose to my g/f. (Don't worry, the patient lived. It only took a minute or two to ask, get a yes, a quick hug and kiss and the stretcher was on it's way.)

                            Just think, if that building ever goes up and the chief wants the balcony laddered; that crew will know exactly where to set up!

                            I know I am beating a dead horse, as the PIO already spoke about it, but I couldn't help it.


                            And about my proposal, the patient didn't mind at all...it was me on the stretcher!
