After two years here, I'm impressed. I've seen youngsters get advice on their future, ignorant questions get properly rebuked, old dogs discussing the way it was and the way it should be, training advice I never considered, and many others. But the one thing that always impresses me is when someone has a bad day. Whether its a really bad call, someone going through rough times, sickness of a friend, or just self doubt, this community comes together. The members bring their experience and compassion out in full force to help a brother or sister through rough times. Yes, we're tough on newbies, we pick on the old dogs, we razz each other to no end, but never do we leave a hurt member behind. THey feel safe enough to post their worst days here, and ask for help, and they get it. They recieve heartfelt compassion, empathy, words of wisdom, prayers, advice from others about things they've had to experience on their absolute worst days, and offers of help from all over. After all the stupidity, the greed, the political horsecrap I've seen throughout the fire service, it makes me proud that the members here put it all aside to help another every time. This is what the fire service should be all about, and it never fails to give me a sense of pride that I'm allowed to be apart of it. For that, I thank all of you
