Want good info to be a great Fire Police Officer?
Welcome to the site dedicated to make a difference!
2017 brought forth both opportunities and challenges. The overall numbers of Fire Police Officers statewide continues to fall, and unfortunately there is no draw for highly-qualified people to fill their ranks. Who, in their right mind would want to get up at zero-dark-thirty to go out in bad weather to be cussed at by the motoring public? Who would want to put up with - let's call a spade a spade - firehouse politics or a total lack of support from FDs?
To make matters worse, our first real Fire Police champion at the Fire Academy - George Stapleton - left for a job in South Carolina - we wish him our best. Before Bruce Trego had a chance to get comfortable in the "big chair" he's now been tapped as interim Fire Commissioner, due to the resignation of a Fire Police friend - Tim Solobay.
It is said that the hottest fire makes the best steel - maybe this will lead us into a better world. We certainly hope so!
We, as Fire Police, need to get our acts together. The best way is through education. This site provides a plethora of information to better ourselves. The first way of professionalism is training, then practicing what we've been taught. We have to present a better case - and not back down - when we need safety gear. Using our own cars needs to be eliminated, in favor of using FD or municipal vehicles; and, until we get a vehicle, pay us for gas.
If we do it right, we'll only move forward! Does this take some hard work and effort? Definitely. What's the alternative? Funerals. Disrespect.
