Packing it in

Well, it was fun while it lasted . I'm leaving firehall.com in the new year . It's become nothing more than a hiring forum now. In fact I heard a couple of new recruits say " now that we are hired, we don't need to go on firehall anymore" It also appears that a lot of the old regulars are no longer ...

[quote=""Rescue78""]LTPVFD - I was there in January 2011 as well (Jan 9th to 16th), and the port was closed for two days because of the wind. We might have been there at the same time. I am going to Roatan, Honduras this year.[/quote] Just got back from there, well a day anyways, as part of a cruise.

[quote=""AxeInHand""]Just to jump in, what guitarmedic is saying should not be written off without duely recognizing the issues. What he is saying has merit. Fire, in many (but not all) areas, is not intended to be the solution to field paramedicine. In a healthy percentage of the time, we are simpl...

[quote=""guitarmedic87""]Ok, poor example, lets say it was simple vehicle fire then, in which you would typically only have one station respond. If that station can't respond because they are at a medical call thats when the second station would have to be dispatched. I dont think I said that fire w...
