"I wanted a leather for tradition. A town near by had a few members with leathers, and I just felt a leather was a little easier to notice on the fire ground than the tupper wear helmets. The rest of the dept uses a 1010,1044 or a bulard. I find it…"
"I started my career with a MSA in traditional style then 1985 L.A. County Fire Dept. went with a Phoenix nazi style helmet. Ofter 9/11 L,A, County Fire Dept. said we could buy New York style helmets to use while on duty. I bought a Carins"
Hey guys I'm just curious as to why you went with the leather? Was it for the tradition, a promotion, years of service or just because? Just wanted to get an idea because I'm currently looking at breaking into the leatherhead tradition when I finish college at the end of the year (a graduation gift to myself).See More

I have been with Chenango Bridge for about 5 years and I can't get enough of it. I was recently promoted to the rank of Foreman which I guess could be seen as a Sergeant.
In a Relationship
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
My dad was a member of the department that I am with now. He was in for 3 years of my life and I remember the stories he would tell me of the things that he saw and did. I figured that I would give it a try and now I absolutely love it.
Hope you don't mind me contacting you through FFN. Fortunately this is the best way to connect with other Firefighters and it's been instrumental in allowing me to introduce an opportunity. I have been with the FDNY for close to 22 years now and worked many odd jobs to make a better life for my family. Two years ago a good friend and brother firefighter offered me a chance to start my own business in Energy. He told me, "Gather a Gas and/or Electric customer once, to a service that's Guaranteed to be cheaper than what they are presently paying ... and earn money, Month after Month after Month". I understand this sounds way to good to be true, but it is true and it is real. If you or maybe someone you know would like to earn additional income, please get back to me and I will forward the information.
Thank you, Stay Safe and hope to hear from you soon.
