Here in the Washington, D.C. metro area, we get word from the local media outlets about a 4-year-old firehouse video being leaked to the local news that depicts what the media calls a 'frat house' full of activity. The Kentland Volunteer Fire Department shown in the video operates under the Prince Georges County Fire Department in Maryland .
In the news video below, you can see volunteers shooting illegal fireworks in the station, hazing new firefighters, mooning while driving the engine, etc.
I've posted several times regarding our activities in the public eye and the perception of the public to those activites. People, this is 2008 and the reality of it all is that perception is reality. Though some areas of the states you could get away with this, in major metropolitin areas - you will get roasted. Think twice before you do anything that can be recorded, observed or reported by a third party. If you get any feeling that something might be wrong with it - it probably is.
If you don't think twice, you could end up like this volunteer chief ... watch the videos and post your comments:
