Life As A Community Firefighter: It’s All About The ‘Shout’! (Charity Donation)

(4 customer reviews)

£0.99

JD Morgan reveals his obsession with making the first ‘pump’ out of the door when he was on fire duty, at the expense of virtually everything else, which, in truth, many Retained Firefighters, dedicated to the cause, will recognise, acknowledge and (probably) reluctantly accept as being their reality as well! A ‘shout’ is a fire call that a firefighter must answer, if on duty – and nothing will prevent them from getting to their station in double quick time, no matter what! (3,450 words)

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS STORY (including costs) WILL BE DONATED TO THE UK’s FIRE FIGHTERS’ CHARITY – Registered in England and Wales (No. 1093387). Many thanks.

‘Who the fucking hell d’you think you are?’ These were the first words my new boss shouted at me, in a state of apoplectic rage, from his allocated parking space at Brigade Headquarters when I realised, to my horror, that he had been the recipient of my verbal abuse after he’d cut me up in his 4×4 at a roundabout just before we’d both turned into HQ’s car park. In fact, I had flicked the Vs at him and yelled out that I thought he was a ‘Jumped up, ponce!’, and, what was worse, this had only happened thirty seconds earlier! ‘Sorry, Boss!’, I muttered, as a means of an apology, ‘I had no idea that it was you!’ He glared back at me, inwardly seething with his beetroot red cheeks signalling that it was only professional courtesy preventing his launching a full-frontal attack! But, then, his enraged gaze, which was penetrating through me the way a laser beam obliterates light, very slightly lowered itself to my midriff where he noticed that I still had my alerter clipped to my belt. ‘And you can fucking well take that thing off, right now!’, he stated with glee, sticking out his index finger and pointing it intrusively,  “No fucking alerter needed here, because you aren’t going on any fucking ‘shouts’ – not whilst you’re working for the Chief Fire Officer!”, ‘Is that understood?’ ‘Yes, Boss!’, I answered, obediently, without really absorbing the potential repercussions of what he’d actually said. “Banned from answering ‘shouts’?”, ‘Not allowed to go on fire-calls?’, ‘Bloody Hell! What was he talking about?’, “Going on ‘shouts’ was the only reason I’d joined the Brigade in the first place!”

    I was hooked from the first sentence! An enjoyable trip down memory lane, showing, with large amounts of humour, the sacrifices Retained Firefighters make during their years of service with the Brigade. Read and appreciate the dedication.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to
    make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to
    read?
