Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I just want to get the opinion of others. First off has anyone heard of or started and business with "Boardup"? Do you think it is ethical for firefighters to own these companies and profit from the after-math of fires? On the surface seems like a good thing, but does it put us in a position to be grouped with ambulance chasing lawyers, and independant insurance adjusters? Is it even legal for us to profit on information we recieve on the radio? Seems like there could some big ethics issues here.

Would love to hear any experiences other agencies have had with this company.
