Why is it that in the USA police officers have a bunch of different slang terms to refer to them, but firefighters don't have any, to the best of my knowledge? I mean, police are called
"cops", "heat", "the man", "fuzz", "blue meanies", "pigs", etc., etc., but can you think of a single term that refers to firefighters? And please don't give me "__________s Bravest", because that's cancelled out by "__________s Finest",
and implies that cops aren't as brave as firefighters. So here's a suggestion for a term to refer to firefighters that no one else can appropriate, describes them and what they do to a T, and isn't a self-serving thing like "so and so's Bravest". HOSERS!
This has been EMT Nate, reminding you all that "FMB" was not a derogatory slogan ragging on Mayor Berry, but a reference to a fictitious hero to firefighters everywhere: FIRE MARSHAL BILL!
Let's hear it for Albuquerque Hosers! They drive drunk, and rape women in fewer numbers than Albuquerque cops!

In Canada, it means a drunken, stupid person. So I guess when you take into consideration what firemen do-work with hoses- it fits them like a glove, especially Albuquerque firemen, er Albuquerque Hosers I mean!

Because they are there to rescue, not intimidate or harass. That's why we refer to them for that help, by giving them the honor of their proper names, or the proper names of their jobs.

There are those who would argue- remember this is Albuquerque. Who knows how many enterprising firemen have used those fire inspections to extort money from businessmen? Not too long ago the former chief was using one of his employees to build stuff at his home on City time. As Thomas C. McClenaghan, former head of the FBI field office in Albuquerque said in January 2009: "New Mexico is the Capital of Corruption of the USA. I've never seen anything like it in all of my years at the FBI. Corruption is pervasive at EVERY level of government". It's a New Mexico thing.
But, over and beyond that, remember that firefighters in the south were used to hose down, harass and intimidate civil rights demonstrators, who back then were "dissed" in the same way the Occupy Wall Street and its offshoots are dissed nowadays. On a personal note, I know of at least 2 firefighters in the Academy Station and the Juan Tabo (close to the Flying Star) who use their sirens and lights to regularly harass and startle motorists and residents. I understand that letters to Chief Breen concerning their activities have had no effect.

So, if you are saying the reason firefighters have no other terms to describe them is because people honor them, I disagree. Take for example, U.S. Marines. I don't know of anyone who disrespects them in the USA, yet they have a bunch of different terms/knicknames by which they are known in addition to Marines. Some of those are "jarhead", "leatherneck", Uncle Sam's Misguided Children, gyrenes, devil dogs, etc. I think it's about time firefighters got at least 1 nickname! Hosers seems to fit.

I think you are just jealous that the fire fighters have bigger hoses than yours, and that your hose frequently becomes limp and dries up.

LOL, or, or, or, hosers have a need to be handling those big hoses, those huge trucks and ladders, playing those extremely loud, obnoxious sirens and squirting at high pressure over long distances because of feelings of inadequacy themselves! They might be the ones that gain from working for the City of Albuquerque with its Sergeant Mark Andrew Stephens (APD) Penis Enlargement Package health benefit (1995- MAS Penis, originated with Albuquerque Police Department).

Personally, I never had any desire to let other guys handle my hose, and I definitely don't put my hose in places where it might get burned.

That's already taken by big females who want to wear a girdle to hold in they wide behind!

And it is not a foundation they try to save but the building.

It's great that I learned a new term when referring to fireman, however where I am we usually call them "bucket heads" or "rope monkeys". And Troll Kicker, you comments spell out pretty clearly that you are an ignorant goof. Police are there to "intimidate and harass", it's actually called pro-active policing, and the contributing members of society actually appreciate it.
