heres a pic for everyone to give me there thoughts on it.i have been tring to talk safety to this kid but he doesnt seem to listen.i think that its poor judgemenet plus the kid is a jr firefighter and i dont agree with him on the hoseline
im not tring to cause issues but i am tring to show how stupid people can be.
and this is my thought.i dont agree with jrs even being close to the firegrounds.the fire in question was in a nearby department to me in pa.you would think that with the pa state fire academy and the pa fire commish living in the area that things would be done differently.in my departmant the jrs stay with the rig and do what is needed close to there.we do not allow them anywhere near the fire,mva or whatever the situation maybe.
true there maybe some good jr and or explorer programs out there.
Where's his PPE? Is he properly certified and trained to be on a hoseline? Does this FD have any SOG's or SOP's regarding the proper wearing of PPE? Are juniors/explorers even allowed to be doing what he is doing?
Marc IT'S NOT ONE KID SPOILING IT FOR EVERYONE WHAT I MEAN IS THIS IS THE LATEST IN A LONG SERIES OF SHORT COMIMGS IN THE JR PROGRAMS . IT'S TO ME THE LAST STRAW AND TIME TO ERROR ON THE SIDE OF SAFETY AND PROTECT OUR CHILDREN......... SUPPOSE THERE'S A BLEVE IN THAT BUILDING ? THEN WHAT DO WE SAY.
I just showed this picture to my son who is an Under 18 member of my department. He is offering to give this young lad a free a$$ kicking. His follow up comment was that it is unbelievable that an officer would allow any FF in casual station wear to be this close to an actual fire.
