Smell that? I just thought of something. Could you imagine if we all got together at one campground for a few days? BBQ, beer, talk, campfire, activities etc..... Maybe not, we'd probably get thrown out after the first night.
No. We'd have one assigned as security like all the wild parties I worked. Ha.

I am a volunteer FF for Upper Providence Twp, PA DELCO since 1998
Volunteered and worked as a paid EMT since 2001 until becoming a LEO

Currently a municipal police officer for ten years, 8 of which for a town in eastern Chester County. I have done a bit of drug work, traffic unit and now ERT. So I think I have been lucky with where my life has brought me.

It has been a tough few months / year for our profession. But I can honestly say I have never loved my job any less in the ten years of being out here. I do actually enjoy getting up and coming to work because of the people I work with and the community I work for. Good to see so many of us out there, although I usually can flag them at the campgrounds since they general look around just as suspiciously as I do!! LOL

PS: I can confirm nor deny being armed at all times....

As someone else mentioned, good to know that so many of my fellow campers would know exactly what to do in an emergency, and I'm sure they would be the first to offer help. Thanks to all you guys and gals.

We camp at a place owned by a former highway patrolman with 20 years of experience, and I always feel safer because of that. He knows from experience how to deal with people who break the rules or otherwise cause problems. And I don't mean with a show of force.....just knowing how to talk to people.

SO he doesn't whip out the Taser and set those loud partiers straight after the quiet times!

Exactly, "Honey you ok, you haven't called me ----------today." Nightfall? probably not. lol

Got it. Following up on your post, this was in yesterday's paper: Delaware volunteer fire companies struggling with recruitment
