    hmm ,never heard of such, at least as a specific type, where someone would say "chore jacket" and I should picture the exact cut/style lol Vs just, you know, a jacket you happen to be wearing cuz it's chilly out, doing chores or not *shrugs*

    Stupid question, but what is a "Chore Jacket"? (Specifically a denim chore jacket). Is that an actual common term, or like a specific bit of regional slang? Cause I mean, sure, I lived mostly in warmer states (lol) but I have also spent multiple years living in states where snow in the winter...

    Apparently one of the City Council Members suffered a cardiac arrest at a meeting... a meeting attended by our EMS Medical Director, the Fire Chief, and one of the Deputy Police Chiefs (who got to remember their CPR training and start bystander CPR and using one of the City Halls public access...

    AEL Oklahoma Helicopter down

    The fact that this is even theoretically possible to essentially crash your helicopter into your same helicopter, much less not-just-theoreticall-but-well-known-cause-of-way-too-many-fatallities, is just insane to me

    What do people write on their gloves? I don’t really see what you would need to write down.

    A previous system I worked for, we were absolutely required to chart Fires run number. It was no problem when they'd just give us a paper PCR that had it printed already... but when they switched to an ePCR system, theirs and ours, at least in the field, could not talk to each other, so they'd...

    Well, apparantly I'm a year out of date, but Third Watch is back available on streaming (Tubi app) (Used to only be the first two seasons, but the 9/11 episode, and the remaining 4 seasons were unavailable due to some licensing squabbles over the music in the show of all things... I guess they...

    Well it's a good thing we take decon (more or less) serious, all our turnouts go into an Extractor at the station, and we were washing off and scrubbing the rest of our other gear (helmets, masks, SCBAs, etc), but yeah, this one was not a clean fire by any means...

    Last shift of the year, ended with a bang (literally a 15-20ft tall tire pile in a rundown junkyard....) A whole first alarm assignment lasting several hours (we were dispatched 3rd in around 5-ish... by the time we were cleared, cleaned up hose, and actually back at station going back into...
