Fire Chiefs exwife's house lol (that's funny I don't care who you are).

A few years back we responded to working fire in an older brick mansion that had been converted into a business. It was a good fire (notice what we as firefighters call good). Fire was blowing out several of its windows. After we had the multiple alarm fire contained we gathered in the parking lot behind the smoking ruins and swapped war stories. Because it was a… Continue

What's your nickname?

They call me "Clubber". No I'm not a UFC fighter. I simply spiked a ball while playing Volleyball and broke a guy's finger. Some nicknames are funnier than others. "Lt Poop" happened to shart in his pants while running in fire school. He will forever be called" poop or poopie" ( I think his kids call him that). Some nicknames are obvious William Williamson is "Bill Bill", Richard Richardson is "Dick Dick". Others are not so obvious. "Hau's is not a big burly guy at all. He drives like shit.… Continue

Can you carry 100 lbs up several flights of stairs? (maybe you already do!)

On February 23rd, 2008 The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation held the 27th annual fundraising event The climb for the cure.

Firefighters from central Ohio came to downtown Columbus Ohio where they donned their full turnout gear including their S.C.B.A.’s (and on air) walked the stairs of the 40 stories in the Rhoades State Office Tower to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis.

Here’s something interesting. Since the event was held in our first in district we (Engine co #9) stopped by to… Continue

10 funny things heard and said

#1 PT- “Take this oxygen mask off me I can’t breathe with it on”

#2 PT-“I’ll get in the back faster if I go by ambulance”

Reply- “That’s not really true, you could imagine some people would call 911 for the silliest things just to cut in line in front of all the people in the waiting room”.

#3 Your on scene, you know you’re in trouble when your patient still has their armband and EKG patches on from the ER.

PT- “I was at the hospital a few hours ago… Continue

Can I get courtesy flush up in heeyaa!

Okay, I know it's not their fault. When folks have a knee or hip replacement and need help getting up off the toilet or vagal down and "Fallout" while using the toilet and someone has to call 911. I really don't have a problem just helping them up or even cleaning them up and transporting them to the ER. Because hey it could happen to anyone. But, As God is my witness. If I ever find myself fading out while doing my business on the pot. With my last breath I will reach up and flush that damn… Continue

I’ve never met a firefighter that didn’t love their job. But I know plenty who don’t appreciate it.

After paying for my own Firefighter/ EMT training, I worked for about six years or so volunteering and working part time as a mercenary Firefighter for several departments. All the while working a regular fulltime job doing everything from commercial painting to Jail guard. I took every firefighter exam within a hundred miles and applied with anywhere hiring fulltime firefighters.…

Women don't belong in the fire service ?

Women lack the upper body strength to pull a person from a burning building. They have trouble throwing ladders and starting saws. An interesting observation but is it true. The question I hear the most from folks voicing their opinion is this “Do you think a woman can pull you from a burning building?” Here’s my answer. I don’t know for sure. But I’m not sure many men could ether. I weigh 210 lbs. If I’m wearing my…

Quote of the day

Spoken by a construction worker we found lying on his back, covered in drywall dust, who had twisted his foot stepping from some scaffolding and had an obvious dislocated/fractured left ankle.

" It could be rainning pussy and I would get hit with a cock".

His buddy chimmed in with this "Yeah and it hit you right in your mouth"

Put your shirt on kid your embarrassing us

I know it's hard to keep your shirt on when you are 20 years old. But try to resist taking a shirtless picture in your fireman costume. And think about rolling your shirt sleeves back down ( if your guns are that big people will be able to tell ) and you can give your little sister her shirt back. I know you don't want to hear this from a 40 something not so buff anymore guy. But It's a lot like that really hip tuxedo you rented for prom. "It seemed like a good idea at the time" . On second… Continue

Firefighter and Divorce

Why firefighters get divorced .

We are just like everyone else. We get divorced over money, infidelity, insecurity, lack of romance, married to young, "I'm tired of being your mother" and all the other reasons people in other careers get divorced. But here are some added reasons.

#1. Jealiousy- It can be very hard when your spouse hates their job and the people they work with. They hate to get up and go to work while you happily bounce off to do the job you…

Firefighters/Paramedics/ EMT's Don't save lives

We prevent people from dying before their time. It's God who decides who lives or dies. Anyone who has worked an arrest that you were sure they would come back and they don't (despite your best efforts). Or the person that you didn't think had a snowballs chance in hell of making it one day shows up at your station with cookies. How about the times you hear from the doctor "One centimeter to the left or right and they would have died" . And last but not least those people…
