not cool I was one of the FF on the mountain for a total of 11 hours busting my butt on slippery rocky terain and also dealing with smoke from the fire trying to cut a fireline to prevent the spead of the fire. Then still went to work that night, also worked the next day. i was up for over 36 hours. So if you think that is cool try being a volenteer FF... which means no pay when at calls
Okay Lightning721, Let me first start by saying that I myself applaud you for all you and every other fire fighter do to help us.
When I was reading your post, I couldn't understand where you were coming from. First can I point out that when you VOLUNTEER, you do not get paid.(Maybe you were being sarcastic to a previous post, I don't know) But when doing volunteer work , you make the choice to give up your time,(maybe alot of time in some cases) and to realize you are not getting any type of compensation for this time, BUT what you do get is a good feeling inside, the knowledge that you helped in some way.
So if you used this posting area to remind people what a volunteer means, poor choice, with your post it seems your not happy doing what you are
