Doing pretty good actually for the moment. Fixen to go into the kitchen and try to find the souce of a bad smell...Have been laughing at Steve for the past day and a half as he got the brown bottle flu at the FF Memorial and is still feeling the affects of it. LOL I know he knows if he rehydrates himself he will feel a ton better, but I am starting to wonder if he has developed an allergy to it. LMBO He is happily misserable and holding onto the hang over as a reminder of the good time he had getting this misserable I think.

Have a great week and be safe please.

I also feel that if I go to a job interview for a FF position I should be viewed just as a male I would not want to be given advantage because I am a female. I know strenght wise it is more difficult for women to exceed men however the training is the same and the knowledge. I don't think anyone deserves a job based on their sex, race or anything else I think it should be based on their experience and knowledge of the job. I also feel you can hire somone with less training and make them as good but the administration you should have the ability to determine at what lengths has the applicant gone to to prove themselves as a FF, not just because they are trying to fill a quota. That's when fellow firefighters get killed. How many people to you see entering the fire service because of the schedule? Not because they really want to be a firefighter. You can tell it by the lengths a person has gone to to prepare.

that's the reason the women who are serious about the profession have to fight so hard because of the ones that created the repution for us all. I believe that there are women who sincerely want to do the job and I belive that you are right there are those that want to ride coat tails but that's when people start getting hurt because if the hearts not there then the training isn't there and the knowledge to perform in dangerous situations.

That is the exact reason i have waited so long to apply because I want to be a competitive applicant not because I'm a female. That way I'll deserve the respect that's owed to me for my hard work and not that I'm there for alternative reason but for the right reason ....

Yep, same station numbers
