Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

The finest fields in the world will only grow weeds if not cultivated properly.

We should not allow outside pressures to crust over the Brother/Sisterhood and let this just become just another job. When you go to a support area of your department and do not get the help or service you want, it angers you, because you know that person has a job because the Department exists. They are putting themselves above you and it does not set well. But yet almost everything written today we place our selves above the very reason we exist LIFE and PROPERTY.

If our Armed Services decided that we the people are not savable or the country and freedom is not worth it, where would we be....

When you hear someone sing the, “They are not savable or buildings are not worth it” song. One must wonder, if the shoe was on the other foot or they had no shoes, but instead were wrapped in the neighbors blanket in the front yard, bathed in the fire light of their world in flames, would the tune be the same.

If you just want a job, Walmart is hiring, the cart crew even gets highly reflective vests.,
