I came across this pic on Captain Willie Wines’ site, Iron Firemen.com. He gives a brief summation of his thoughts associated with this pic and they echo a lot of what I’m thinking. I’m slowly coming to the realization that a large percentage of the country’s fire services think that stuff we see in this photo and the video below are ok, “cool” or whatever. I just don’t get it <shaking my head>. It’s sad. People will get hurt and/or killed for absolutely no reason. It’s very sad. If you’re going to be a firefighter, be a professional one.
