The Firehouse Back Room

This is a place where we can sit down, put our feet up and chill. Where the Boys and Girls can just be themselves. The Back Room or what most firefighters call a ''day room or rec room'' is the social point of every firehouse.See More

"Thanks Reg. From my perspective, it does appear that the volunteer world has a level of politics that far exceeds what I have to deal with. I imagine it stems from being a more social group. I was reading one of the other blogs that asked if it…"

"In a nutshell? Department Politics. Being from a rural, 90% vollie department, I am continually frustrated by favoritism, nepotism and the little fiefdoms that have a stranglehold on our department. It would seem that power and influence have more…"

"There are issues that could be similar in many departments for sure. But i would like to think that when push comes to shove, the issues disappear for a bit. A firefighter that is knowledgeable, but complains all of the time.-----There are a…"
