I guess the public should expect this type of problem from this fire company since they have a bar room attached to the fire company. Is the Chief surprised by this type of behavior? Who is sleeping at the switch?

It's a promotional requirement in the volunteer fire service to set a few fires.

I resent that comment. Yes, there are firefighters out there that love the rush a little too much & light things on fire but that DOES NOT mean that every volunteer firefighter does the same thing. Just bc you get paid to do the job you think you're better? I don't get paid but I love the job & I do it for the right reasons. A$$hole.

Peter- But if he has a CDL he must abide by the BAL limit requirements no matter what type of vehicle he's driving.

Anyway, this guy's a schmuck. And to the those here talking smack about vollies you all can just go read about the career Boston Jakes who had drugs in their system, the MD A.C. or LA Marshal who set fires themselves...plus many other examples - there are always bad apples whether we get paid or not.

Be Careful on the advise you are giving..

Going TO an Emergency is permited ..

HOWEVER.......

Coming back from a fire is NOT an emergency so you better have a CDL.

You ARE required to have a CDL when driving a Firetruck .MOST Firetrucks are OVER the 26,000 lbs requirement for a CDL ...

Just ask your Insurance provider... If you have an accident coming back from a call you can get yourself into trouble..All it takes is a smartazzed attorney to make an awful lot of trouble for YOU and the Insurance co.

.. Those that are assuming you don't need it BEWARE!!..
