Hi....Me again....Now this is NOT another Career vs Vollie post...Someone asked for stats (I think it was Heather)...So, I got nosey and found this information from the United States Fire Administration....all stats are from 2008.  Total Firefighters in US    1,148,850...Career 321,700, Volunteer 827,150. Firefighter age groups....   ages....16-19...  4%, 20-29... 25%, 30-39...26%, 40-49...24%, 50-59...15%, >60...6%.   76% of Career Firefighters are in communities of 25,000 or more ......96% of Volunteer Firefighters are in communities of 25000 or less of which 50% are in rural areas with populations of less that 2500......I found this little exercise very interesting (doesn't take much to get me "interested" I guess....LOL)  Stay safe....always remember to Keep the Faith......Paul

See Paul: mental health stat #1 = Greg's Phobia
You are right, I said he was a J-ock or was that a Cl-ock...
he is so confusing being that he is so multi-faceted
who really knows what he is

... I also called him NICE ...
that is just plain blasphemy right there...
Stat #2 = My Delusional (Beliefs about Paul) Disorder

and yes, haven't you heard

Stat #3 = the definition of a firefighter = the insane person running into the burning building while all the sane people are running out

(this is similar to the definition of a police officer = the insane person running at the person shooting while all the sane people are running away from the person shooting)
SHHHHHH.....I am Batman........LOL
Firefighter Divorce Rates...Lol. These stats might be skewed, but we've had about 10 in the last 10-12 years.
ROTFLMAO
Is that a bad thing...? I once had a boil on my butt...that was lanced and now it is gone....I'm not unhappy about it......LOL
Don't go and tell my "secret" ok....?
I cracked up when I saw the Firefighter Age Group statistics - starting at 16!
I know WP....I did too...but that's what the US Fire Administration has for Stats.....
I am just surprised you got someone to walk down the aisle with you in the first place... let alone kept them around long enough to equate them to a boil on your butt... You constantly amaze me.
Made several less than good decisions in my life...one would think that after getting kicked in the teeth enough times that one would learn......BUT.....NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Not this bird........LOL...and hey....I'm not a bad guy....once people know me.....LOL
