Dennis, was your choice of spelling for ’Erk’ deliberate? If so, I am having a little chuckle WITH you.
Colin and Dennis, I for one received elementary fire fighting training on most of the stations that I was posted to and in my profile you will note a fair number. At no point did I/We consider ourselves to be even within viewing distance of the skills of trained service firefighters but were more than capable of containing, extinguishing and closing off a number of levels of live fire events.
You can’t train stupid!
