Two weeks ago I donated $100 to local FD. (All volunteer) Yep they have lots of guys who sign up to be able to tell girls. Most have 10+ yrs in. I looked over training board. There were two who had not been to +80% of training. They had missed 4 months worth. (seems they are deployed overseas) I wonder if they joined military to get girls as well.
Then again of those I know. ALL but 3 are married. (so becomming a fire fighter must work)
They had to get new fire pumper truck. I asked what was wrong with old one? I was told new insurance requirements said the pumper must be rated to X thousand gallons per minute. So I asked if they ever had situation where they didn't have enough GPM? The answer not even close. There is not even a 3 story building in area.
