HAHAHA! i wanna see a whole FD full of ppl who are over 61, that would be so funny. The limit of 90 seconds is no more, it's more like 9 minutes before they get outa the place.

LOL 90 seconds to get out for a call? yea ok. Thats a paid fire department maybe. Do you realize how fast 90 seconds is? A volunteer fire department, people are usually at their house and if they get a call on the pager they hop in the car, turn on the warning lights and come to the department. The only time it would take 90 seconds is if there was a previous call and all the fireman happened to still be hanging out at the firehouse.

But think about it.. a minute and a half to get dressed, get seated on the truck (you dont just sit anywhere, each seat on the truck dignifies a different job)

That 90 seconds is lightning speed.

i just had a training on the saws. The monster gas circular and chain saws for venting roofs... So sick... We just cut up like 4 sheets up plywood on top of wood pallets (to simulate a roof) I got to use a like 25 pound gas powered carbide blade circular saw, this thing if it touches your body, its getting chopped. The other saw i used was a diamond tipped carbide tooth ventmaster chainsaw.


Heres the circular saw i used

and heres the ventmaster chainsaw

http://www.thefirestore.com/store/category.cfm?cID=1310

The chainsaw was way more fun.

Both of them were simply nasty...


by the way, the chainsaw cost a bit over $2000 and the chains for it are about $220. Love for the taxpayers.

Basically, what you see in movies like ladder 49 where they have the bs joke they play on him, well i got a swirly, like an actual one from like 3 of the other guys. Yes it was clean, they cleaned it to be nice before doing it...

Lol :lol:

Cleaned or not I'm not doing a toilet brush impression for anyone :P

I wonder if the kevlar fibre stuffed chainsaw trousers you're meant to wear for normal chainsaws would work on a carbide tipped one...

The fibres aren't meant to get cut but get dragged out by the chain and jam the sprocket....

Any volunteers to find out?

Yea odds are they would work. The concept behind those is that theres just so much in there that they clog the chain like you said. i would think it would give you one pissy day tho when you try to get them out of the saw... regardless of it saving you from getting hurt, u will be anoyed as fork im sure.
