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

My head hurts after reading your last post.
Tim, I really did not anticipate that you had the stamina to read that much... it's ok... I understand

... it's called cut and paste... fyi
Miss Heather

As for me jumping at the hook well your right I do, once I grow tired of your begging...

p.s.--I had no trouble reading your lengthy post.

and now, I am just begging you to bring me some breakfast ;-)
You haven't earned it and besides it is much too late for that, it's already 1400, must be something wrong with your watch!
well someone has to clean up this cave... what if company flies in?
brunch then - it is morning at my house... and my bed and jammies set the stage for me to be served breakfast

no excuses... get 'er done... that would be southern hospitality ;-)

btw big boy, I knew you would have no trouble with stamina reading the long posts... I've seen your work
I had help with the big words but I still did it. I figured out why my head hurt so bad though. I had my special helmet on too tight. Oops the short bus is here got to go.
Ohhhhh, so that's what I have been doing wrong........think I wll have another beer....back to work tomorrow......
Hey guess what I found....Divorce rates for Firefighters currently is between 75% and 87% depending on where you are.....Damn, I'm getting good at this crap......LOL
dang 87 % - WTF ?!?!?! that leaves almost NO ONE left in the fire service married - we suck at self-care... and apparently marital nurturance

THANKS... where did you find it - I want citations too..

and does this mean, since you are "good at this crap" you can find the rest of the items (with citations) on my list... pretty pleeeezzzzzeeee

OK - now i realize i sound like a super stalker when I say you are WICKED AWESOME...
