exhaustion =/= smoke inhalation
It's not uncommon to get sent to the hospital after fighting a fire, whether you are interior or doing overhaul.
It's not common either though. The article is so poorly written that it's hard to tell what happened.

Being a boy scout, are you sure the kid didn't start the fire in the first place?

Jeez, it would've been more convenient for him to get the smoke inhalation at the fire instead.

WTF Indeed: Being a boy scout, are you sure the kid didn't start the fire in the first place?

Serious. Firemen were probably making him put out his own fire.

The irresistible scent of pork chop sandwiches caused the Scout to run into the burning building.

The explorers are organized by the Boy Scouts. They don't necessarily need to be Boy Scouts, though.

This article is missing quite a bit of information. Subby fails reading comprehension because exhaustion is not smoke inhalation. Moron.

It's not uncommon for fire departments to have explorers. Police departments have explorers as well. It's a great opportunity for 14-18 year olds to learn about public service. In fact, many youths who are explorers eventually wind up in a career in public service.

We have explorers at our fire district. They are the engineer's best friend. They can help deploy hose lines, hook up water supply lines, swap out air bottles, aid the incident commander, assist with communications, work the deck gun, and even operate the pump for the engineer in the event the engineer is needed in a hazardous area.

Mark Aston, fire chief and director of the Sonoma County Office of Emergency Services sounds like a douchebag politician trying to start a pissing match by saying "It's an understanding when an agency provides aid, the people are qualified to the standards that we have established. This was a surprise to me."

What a dick. He was probably subby.

It doesn't sound like the guy was in harm's way. He was outside on the water truck and apparently overdid it. I rather suspect the primary culprit here is adrenaline.

So, they don't know why he was there, or who let him onto the scene, or what exactly he was doing that led to his exhaustion/smoke inhalation, what caused the fire, or if Glen Ellen's rules are different from Santa Rosa's. Basically, they don't know jack.

Can you say slow news day?

How about if they had called him LouDobbsAwaaaay? Or would that have been too gay?

Uhhh Baden Powell's ghost would piss on the Boy Scouts of America if he knew what shiatty bubbblewrap they coddle kids with. Hell, the Scouts are supposed to be trained to deal with stuff. That is the whole point. You bring Boy Scouts to help because they can take care of people who are exhausted or need some first aid while doing serious work in the woods. Faaaaark, but the USA is a whole nation of tourists who even treat their own backyard like they live in a hotel.

/you can judge a nation's mettle by it's Boy Scouts

He was just getting his smoke inhalation merit badge.
No biggie.

There were Fire Explorers present at a fire in rural Wisconsin last week when water sprayed into a dumpster set off an explosion, killing a firefighter. Two teens had minor injuries.

/cool story, I know
 
2010-01-04 10:04:38 AM
So did they have regular exhaustion or Lindsey Lohan's "too much coke" exhaustion?
 
2010-01-04 12:39:32 PM
It's hard enough to keep boots from getting too excited at a workin fire. I can't imagine trying to keep a 16 year old from acting like a nervous dog.

Plus boy scouts are nerds. Probably some fat kid.
