Then you should undetrstand more than anyone whhen a ambulance or a fire truck wrecks and some one dies do we banish fire and emergecy services as a whole. Do we bash the good ole' fd no not like the CG is being bashed here. I understand some of what you are writing I spent 6yrs in the CG and have worke full time for a PAID PROFESSIONAL FD since completeing my enlistment. I dont recall hearing much about the vollie firemen who wrecked the fire boat in Woodbridge VA killing a 17yo girl onboard. But then again when you put professional in front of you title you are held to a certain standard.
