It's always a real good idea to let a 16 year old into a burning building.

Sure, & while they're at it, as long as they have a driver's license, just let them cruise around in a $300,000 Fire Engine. Sounds like a great plan, expert.

Is it a better idea to hand them a M16 and send them into a burning building in Iraq?

Are there 16 year olds serving in our military? Don't think so, dumb a$$!

A 16 or 17 year old can still join the Fire Department as an explorer (junior firefighter)
I don't think anyone would discourage any young person to join. It's just this thing in NYS called regulations. You can't be a front line fire fighter until you are 18. Then there's that thing called training. But I guess the original poster isn't too worried about that.
