cindy, thanks for the add but a bad move on your part because now your gonna have to write once in awhile to help me remember who you are :-D ,,,, tell about anything, life, the man, the job, kids grand or otherwise, even a good joke ,,,, nothing like exchanging e-mails with friends when it's slow here at the station or at home when i'm chill-in ,,,,
but now i'm gonna tell you the same thing i tell all newcomers ,,,, the sites fun & does have interesting blog discussions ,,,, i like reading & seeing how other departments do the same thing but also like looking at different styled apparatus's used all over the world ,,,, i'm a crash firefighter and we have some of the weirdest looking out there ,,,, look at my pics to see some past and present day pieces ,,,,
be careful if you like to trade patches ,,,, there are a few people here that just want to get one then not send one back ,,,, i won't mail anything now till i have something in hand ,,,, my goal now is not to get a patch from you i do not collect them ,,,, (but i will trade duty tee-shirts from far away countries and that's how i got "BURNED", i sent the sleaze a tee-shirt & 3 patches and got nothing back ...) i'm just watch-n your back, something most of us on the job understand, it's a big part of what the brotherhood and the family is all about ,,,, if you wanna add me as a friend, great ,,,, if not, that too is OK because this message is intended to mostly welcome, but also warn you ,,,, like in the fire service, not all things are as they appear ,,,, work hard, play hard and train even harder ,,,,
what we do makes a difference, be safe, god bless and smile a lot and every day, it will piss someone off ,,,,
PS: love the pics ,,,,
Hi Cindy! Thanks for the nice comment. Our marriage was all about the FD that day... My wife is a firefighter's daughter, that's how we met. About half an hour before that picture was taken, a call came in... so half the dept. was gone... She didn't let me, haha. Take care, looking forward to get to know you.

Hi Cindy, thanx for joining up with the Fireman's Tavern. as you know this pub is a place for all to socialise and and reminisce about the good old times in the department. lots of stories are told and we are thinking of publishing them on FFN. Think it will be fun, let yo know!
