Just what is the purpose of this forum?

Post by wakkoss » Wed Mar 30, 2011 7:32 am

Is this supposed to be for FRs to post threads and discuss things, or is this for everyone to use when they have FR related questions, concerns, etc?

I would go with option 1 in my opinion, but it isn't being used that way of course.

Issues concerning LEO, firefighters, EMT and other first responders.
Per the forum's description. But it's no different than some gun forums that have "women's" forums that are used by all the men and not the wimminz.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

A forum for LEOs, firefighters, EMT and other first responders to discuss issues pertaining to their fields.
The forum's description has been revised to more accurately reflect its purpose. Of course, that doesn't mean it will fall out that way.

So this would NOT be the forum to put threads based on FRs in the news?

Yes. There are alot of cop bashing going on, and this seems like the proper forum for it.

Well, if it is ok with Moe, I'll field any questions that I'm able to comment on. I can't claim to speak for anyone other than myself. Depending on the question, I can give an authoritative response while on other things it may only be my opinion. So again, if it is ok with Moe, ask.

Forum's description -> A forum for LEOs, firefighters, EMT and other first responders to discuss issues pertaining to their fields.

No, this wasn't set up as the forum to go to to bash cops or anybody else. Someone can come here and bitch about the ticket they just got, or the latest greatest gear for the red truck, or whatever else comes to mind. Something might be construed by some as "bashing" or maybe not. Why are you getting hung up on what the forum is for? Use it or don't use it.

Anybody with the experience & background (or maybe just an opinion) can field any questions asked here.
