My wife and I aer both on the local Rescue Squad. We resond as first out on just about everything except structure fires.

My biggest sound off is "SLOW DOWN AND MOVE THE FLIP OVER!"

My truck is lit up like a christmas tree and I can't even count the number of times people tell me "Sorry, Did not see the lights. Three deputies patrols, two wreckers, four rescue squad vehicles and an ambulance and you did not see the lights? Well, tell you what, just park your car right over there until I can get a deputy over here to talk to you.

We do a lot to save lives and make it easier for people in accidents only to get dang near ran over almost every day.

Ok, rant off. Thanks and please do slow down and move over. And please wwear that seat belt.

In 2 years I can start looking forward to retirement from OFD but might do an additional 3 years of drop


In 3 years I can retire with 30 years from my beloved Navy Reserve.

Former Military Police (11 years) and State LEO (2 years) before switching gears and getting into IT. I'm now on the edge of retirement and have a ton of regret about leaving the LEO fold. I should've looked for a different agency that wanted me instead of just walking away.

Retired District Lieutenant, FHP. exbluelight (ebl)
The FHP are some fantastic guys. Work alot with you guys. Help one one night that had stood in one of those damn fir ant mounds one night. Poor guy was bitten all over his legs. Even bit him on his balls. Never heard a man yell and cuss like that before :lol:

You just about can not work along the interstate in the grass. They are eat up with fire ants. They are every where.

I like messing with the guys in the GD section on busting on LE just to get them going and screwing with them. Just to see their responses. My brothers a DEPUTY SHERIFF So don't believe half of what I post.

I do the same to my brother. He was an Army Ranger also. He was in the 2nd Batt and I was in the 1st Batt.

He busts on me about being a hose dragger and says they started the 2nd Ranger Batt because they screwed up with 1st batt. He said they got it right with the 2nd batt :lol:

I call him Barny Fife :P

My buddy JD is a Sheriff bailiff for a judge. We do accounting and taxes for alot in deputies over in Plant City

You could not pay me enough to do what you guys do. Fortunately my brother flys a helicopter for Port St Lucie and is not a patrol deputy. Thought he did have to do a hard landing once. His bird stalled on him. He did an auto rotation landing. Hurt his back he hit so hard. But he got better.

Anyways God bless everyone here and may he keep all of you safe

6 years on and pushing a marked unit. G17(used to rock a G22 until we switched to 9mm) on duty, G43 or M&P 2.0 compact when I'm anywhere else. Love the career and most of the shit I see.
