Any investigator who doesn't like firefighters asking questions, and offering to assist, should get out of the business. Nothing I like more than to share what I've learned with the brothers on a scene. Never can hurt. When I was up last May I read articles about the union and the two-hatter issues. Somebody needs to take the union guys out to the shed and have a little come-to-Jesus meeting with them. But that's just my two cents worth. South Carolina doesn't allow unions so we don't have those issues down here. Be safe.
Next time your up, I'll buy the Timmies... It's growing up here big time, as well as Orangeville Fire has been having there share of bad news. Issue with the Union and the Doubble hatters has been in the papers for some time. Had one of there crews standing by at our station in Alton. As we where busy with a house fire. Sounds like a very interesting job you have, was working with the Ontario Fire Marshall on the house that burned down the other night. Very intersting, although I had some questions. He looked as though there was a lot of thinking going on. Did not want to bother him.
Check out the some of the Groups, I have started up "Close Calls" an area to tell your story of what you did and should not of so others learn. "Roll Calls" this is another group that allows you to tell us about your station and district. "Trainers Corner" is another area that you can read about issues other trainers have or deal with. As well if your not a trainer you can ask questions or state concerns you have. If you have a hard time locating them just go to my site and look at the bottom left hand corner.
