  • Hello from Michigan

    Hi, new to the forum. I am a Police Officer and a Firefighter from Michigan. Ours is a combined police/fire department; we are crosstrained in both. I've been an officer for 12+ years and look forward to meeting fellow officers from all over

    Welcome to the forums, I'm originally from the Detroit area. Enjoy!
    All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion and desire.

        Our department is combined - we have some guys assigned to the stations that operate the Rigs - the rest of us are in patrol cars. When a fire/rescue in my zone comes in I respond and have my fire gear in my trunck. If a fire, I strip down to my t-shirt/pants, throw my shirt, vest and gun belt in the trunck and put my bunkers on - fight the fire, then go back to the station, shower and get back dressed to go back on the road. Luckily we don't have too many "working" fires - the majority of my work is on the police side although we do run a lot of rescues. We're a mid-sized department, about 251 sworn and another 30 or so civilian officers. We have 7 stations with 2 trucks, and 6 engines - fire response is divided up according to our zones so depending on if its an alarm or house fire, etc we always have at least 2 - 3 engines and a truck respond, along with the officers assigned to those zones. Did I confuse you, lol

            Thanks for that info, really interesting, whilst Ive heard of fire fighters being paramedics etc, I never heard of police officers being fire fighters.

            Regards

            Dave

              The Port Authority Police of NY/NJ are also police officers/firefighters/ paramedics. Not every officer in the department is crosstrained but one agency assumes all 3 job functions. http://www.panynj.gov/AboutthePortAu...thorityPolice/

              Oh and welcome to the board
              I believe forgiveness is Gods function; my job is to simply arrange the meeting.

                Welcome from Texas. Enjoy the forum, have fun and stay safe. Interesting concept, I wonder about safety concerns regarding the way you must change thought processes.
