What it’s like around the kitchen table:
It's the one spot in the station that should be the neutral zone. You should be able to discuss everything person to person with no serious worry of retailiation. It's where families discuss their disagreements with each other and it should be no different for our Fire Family.
Third Generation Firefighter Andy Dalstra
It's where we can all learn without fear or criticism. It is where no matter what rank you have, you can start a dialogue and discuss life and department. The 'table' is where the 'officer' can learn about his/her crew if they listen.
Firefighter James Griffeth
One of the best places a new rookie can learn. Stay quiet, listen what is being said. In all the banter real life lessons are being taught. If you don't understand something, ask. Now is the time. As any seasoned firefighter knows all of life's problems are solved around the firehouse table. Personal and professional.
