    Don't do it for the accolades

    33yrs of service 22 yrs of those as Chief. Started in 1985 , not sure what I was getting myself into at the time. 3yrs ago when I got sick I told my crew that I was standing down but they wouldn't let me, they stood up instead and now that we have gone thru the merger with FENZ and my workload is shared I intend to hang around a bit longer. After the official presentation, the community put a do on last night at our own station and it was very humbling evening, feel a bit shattered today.[ATTACH]114295[/ATTACH

    Well done GA.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !
