Being former military I have a deeply ingrained sense of duty and commitment so I hope this doesn't drive people away, I have seen discord in different departments and jobs caused by drama llamas and the Im special attitudes! (and if anything sours my temper it's that type of Bull crap)
As far as being in a fire department you take an oath to serve and protect your department and its members, and contention in the ranks has no place there
we are better than that
For me being part of a fire departments allows me to extend my duty to my community! I am proud to serve in any capacity i can, Although i have a busy life I gladly do what i can.
I set my personal standards high and always strive to stick to them.
I will not hold anyone up to my standards but urge them to set their own standards high.
I will gladly teach safety and responsibility to anyone whether they are a child or adult.
I do not believe that anyone is stupid but only uninformed and have not been given the opportunity or information that they should have.
the public and their children should never be afraid of the fireman or police and any officer or fireman whose actions cause concern or fear amongst the public is bad for the services.
Im a great believer in services hosting open house and attending school or public safety functions to teach and or guide the public along the path of safety and responsibility
even churches are great places for public safety seminars
these are great opportunities to attract new members or juniors
