I've been in the fire service as a volunteer for about 20 years now. At the ripe old age of 52 I wonder when it's time to pack it in. How do you know when it's time to step down? I can't see myself…Continue

Firefighters with camera phones

Does your department have a written policy regarding firefighters taking photos at an MVA or fire scene with private camera phones? Have you had problems with the posting of such photos on social networking websites?

What is going on?

I must have fallen asleep and woken up in a very ugly world. There are people posting on a blog on criticizing firefighters for conducting boot drives to raise money for the fallen brothers' families and for showing up in such large numbers because "they're union guys. There are equally obnoxious posts on facebook. What is going on? Are there people that insensitive and full of hate out there?

RIP now BFD brothers.

The Bridgeport brothers are now with those of America's Bravest that left us way too soom. May God bless their families, friends and the BFD brothers they left behind. Rest in peace!

Blaming the fallen

Hey Paul: Great to meet you. I was born in New Britain General Hospital and lived in Hartford until I was 5 when my parents moved me to Vermont. How is the firefighting work in CT? I have been hearing some bad fire fighting related stories from New England these days, so it sounds like you have your hands full over there. I look forward to seeing you around the pages. Stay safe. Heather
