Tactical Safety for Firefighters

The tactics used by Facebook firefighters vary almost mirroring the real fire service. I say almost because what often gets hit hardest is not the adz end of the halligan but the keyboard of ones digital device. Facebook firefighting is always safe even when you let it all hang out, your worst injury suffering an unfriending. Let’s not forget flash mobs of outrage which of course are much less injurious than a flashover even if you don’t detect it coming. For improved awareness become a student of Facebook behavior which of course is always modern.
Fighting fire via Facebook is very convenient too because even with a pause for your enlightened reply the fire doesn’t die. Profiling which is shunned by most is often the center piece of survivability odds makers and extolled by many FBFD members as good stuff. I wish those same firefighters could guess the stock market too, that would be rich.
There is so much experience at the ends of many hands in fact All Hands. The outgrowth of social media equality, everyone is an expert at least at an inch deep. No finger pointing here I will save that for my instructor photo and my keyboard. Have a gonger of a time and remember no bunker gear cleaning is necessary as a Facebook firefighter, no matter how many J O B S you take in.
