Where firefighters come to talk training

More on the Mission Statement or Mis-Statement

Earlier on the Hump Day SOS we looked into the mission mis-statements and how far away we have drifted from our original mission “To Save Lives & Property”.  Many of you responded with your own stories of mission creep, incomprehensible jibber jab of corporate speak. Some of you still resist thinking that the fire service is off track and this new mission statement trend is right in line with what troops need.

I have been a little too serious with the HD SOS lately so let’s have some fun. The staff here at the Hump Day SOS went undercover in 100 American fire departments and took hidden double secret video of staff meetings and combined them here in a video so that you, the ordinary men and women of the fire service, could see what is being talked about inside your headquarters……. Enjoy!
