Firefighters open chat room for serious learning and sharing without fear

                        The Firemen in this photo are the perfect example of amity and acceptance of everyone from everywhere.

                        "No egos, badges or resumes."

There are two keys for building successful teams in a fire department. The first is: Make sure people get the chance to do what they are supposed to do. You can't fight a fire every day, and some departments have very few fires anymore. But firefighters are still the only ones who fight fire, so it is imperative for them to feel competent and confident in their skills, and to use their skills in a meaningful way on a regular basis.

When everyone is included, everyone will be served. Accept that what you Firemen do is not for you to look good, but only for you to do good.

This above photo is of a man whose criticism of a Nebraska Fire Department compelled the trauma team paramedic to refuse to treat his second & third degree burns. Then the Sheriffs department officer ordered this burn victim to "stand in the street" because the fire marshal did not want the property owner "on his fire scene". All of this because he was honest and spoke about the failures, like this one, of this department at other incidents which were posted in the local newspaper where he left a comment.

To this day the "official report" states that this victim refused transport that day, and now the victim is being openly defamed, denied services from the local medical community, is refused services from local businesses and was denied transport by the two vendors who are providing ride assistance to the VA Hospital for all veterans, in spite of the fact he is a decorated Vietnam veteran. 

The local Red Cross chapter had to be notified by the state Red Cross director to help this now homeless Vietnam veteran after he had called that office for help. When they finally arrived several days later, they did as little as possible to help. They brought little bottles of water, a box of perishable and junk foods knowing the victim had no stove, refrigerator or even cookware as he was forced to live in an old Kenworth truck tractor.

This is the box of food the Red Cross left.

Most of the raw food items were already beginning to spoil too !

This posting begins with what Firemen SHOULD be doing to help citizens, but it must be known that what happened to this one citizen in Nebraska is what some Firemen ARE doing in spite of their oaths to serve and protect without prejudice.

I accept full responsibility, blame and "blow-back" for this posting, because I know it is necessary to expose this type of unacceptable, juvenile and irresponsible behavior in an attempt to make it stop. Every time I am abused I will post the incident from now on.

Be well and safe everyone.

I have spent over 40 years giving whatever I was asked to give and whatever I could give to the Fire Service because it is the right thing to do. These people risk their lives to help others, so I feel strongly that others should be willing to give what they can in return.

My "mission" is the same now as ever, but it is frustrating and even sometimes difficult to love others who are so unwilling to show even the slightest human decency, let alone love in return.
