So good it could not wait!

I saw this and it was so good I could not wait until tomorrow to post it. The origin comes from some guys in the Hanover County Fire and EMS department. The message in it definitely sums up how I feel about the Fire Service! We have far to many paycheck collectors, and part-time fireman. Sure times are tough, and lots of guys need part-time jobs to make ends meet, I am no different. The difference is when those “part-time” jobs or other interests get in the way of your FULL TIME job.

Not only do we owe it to our families to do the job, and know the job. We also owe it to the families of the people we work with, and the citizens to perform at our highest level. My wife often grills me about the skill level of the people I am working with, because it makes her feel safe and that I am in good hands if those guys know the job.

Bottom line is we all have a lot going on, but this job is to important, to dangerous, and to dynamic for it to take a back seat.
