When I signed onto what was then a fledgling internet forum on fire serivce issues, I imagined a place on line similar to some of the think-tank type collaborations I have at times, found myself participating in.
There are those who are laughing at us, thinking we are too dumb to do anything about cutting our benefits, laying off brothers, closing up fire stations. But hey, let’s not raise the spectre of changing things because that wouldn’t be “patriotic”.
Although I am affiliated or employed by certain entities, I in no way speak in this forum or others on behalf of those entities unless I have specifically stated such. Any implication otherwise is doing so contrary to my agreements with those entities.
The result is that the observations and opinions by myself or on behalf of Firehouse Zen are not sanctioned by any other entity other than Graffiti Train Sherpa Publications and are protected by the copyright laws of the United States of America.
