Yeah. Tennessee is a beautiful place to visit. I can only imagine what it's like to live there. Paintball...I love paintball. I have 2 Tippmann 98 customs, one of those with a flatline barrell and shoulder stock, making it resemble a sniper rifle. Haha! The other is a Tippmann A-5. Oddly enough I also aquired an old Spider Shutter from the trunk of a car we used for an extrication class. It needs a little work, but it is in good shape. I try to keep enough guns so I can have a few new friends play the game with me from time to time. I take it you play?
Yeah during the week we always have and emt on call but some weekends we dont but we try our best to have someone.. im only a first responder right now working on getting my emt b so.. its a good place to live and work..
thats pretty crapy. yea we have our ambulance squad which i am also apart of.. but we have the rescue at the fire station so we work together some are on both and some are not. we work together.... pretty much if the ambulance needs a driver they tone out the fire dept for one. so its good that we work together we have pretty good response time during the week anyways.. but during the weekends its hard but we have a schedule set up so we know whos going to be around it works pretty good..
wow thats pretty crazy yeah we have 2 stations on in jacksonvile which is the main station and one in whitingham... its kind of weird how it works down here. lol. we have 2 engins, tanker, pumper and a our rescue unit.. thats all we have then we have the rescue sled. and the snowmobile.. i think we are getting a boat cause we dont have one cause we dont have a dive team but out chief is talking about getting one because we have had a lot of drowndings and the closest dep. that has a dive team is about 45 mins away.. so its pretty shitty having to wait.. and not being able to help.. if you know what i mean..
haha yeah. thats ture. but we are always there for everyone if they need it.. we help eachother out we are pretty close to the fire depts around us. sometimes we even train together so that way we know there trucks and they know ours in case we do go back them up. If we are in need of help we always know that they will be there for us just like we are there for them.. its nice to be close with other depts around..
sorry for the long delay but i'm at work and i'm doing everyone eles job. I work at American Brass in the city of buffalo. I'm a plant emt. It's fun and you see a lot of cool stuff but when you work with a moron it becomes a pain in the ass. yellow is still better than safety green. trsu me that color is ugly. A company near me has white and blue trucks and i think that is a great combo on fire trucks. it stands out a lot more than red and yellow.
yeah some times it is way to much.. its crazy.. but we kind of need the trucks around because it being kind of people being in the woods and stuff we dont really have that many fire hydrants because its a country.. so we have to pump water from the trucks up to the fire... its pretty crapy but its the best way we can do it without the hydrants. there is absolutly no firehydrant anywhere where i live.. so we have a lake that we have to pump out of if anything happend to my house..
