Yeah, that must be the downside of having an important job like a firefighter or a policeman in the gargantuan metropolis-sized city. So much stuff ends up happening you probably have very little actual free time, and when you do get some you could always be called into duty at a moment's notice! :D

It seems like many American politicians on both sides of the political aisle have over-politicized the role of medical workers, police, or firefighters. This situation has created the kind of rift that Americans will have a hard time dealing with once the election is over on November 3.

Jason has earned his time off at this point. If his apartment starts to look like a dustbowl, I can understand that.

Considering there was recent massive wildfires in CA , I don't blame Jay for being too busy.
Long Tom 17th Oct 2020, 12:50 PM
Just as there are many buildings have been built in flood zones where no buildings should have been built in the first place, there are areas prone to wildfires that shouldn't have any buildings there either.

That is so true

I always feel like building cities right on the East coast of the US or right near dormant volcanoes is basically taking a huge gamble XD The former because anywhere from Florida up to Newfoundland is a potential hurricane target, the latter...well, duh. Yet people particularly seem to flock to these areas anyways by the hordes!

Florida is also prone to sinkholes which swallow structures.

Three words: Mount Saint Helens. Fifty-seven people around the mountain died when the volcano came back to life in 1980.

I hope that not too many people tried to rebuild around the area after the eruption. I am sure that insurance rates skyrocketed as well.

Chicagoland has that same problem. Many buildings have been built too close to Lake Michigan, the Fox River, and the Des Plaines River.

My grandfather was a fireman.

Jason: Oh that's a bed. I haven't seen one properly in a while, since a lot of them had overweight furs that needing rescuing from their bedrooms and hadn't really noticed what it was they were initially laying down on, not that I'm judging them, I had a bit of a belly till only recent.
Russ: Yeah I had that happen with me once.
Jason: Huh? You were fat and had to be rescued?
Russ: Just the big belly part. (He mustn't ever know that embarrassing moment where me and Reg were wedged together by our bellies at a local diner...Unless Reg all ready told him about it?)

Ahh, a bed. The only place were one can have ultimate privacy and sleep.

The last time I saw a fireman/EMT's living quarters, it was on the (very old) TV series "Emergency!"; there the fire crew lived in the station unless called to an emergency. It never occured to me that they might have other living accomodations.

Jason needs a massage.
FreyFox 18th Oct 2020, 1:53 AM
Ooh, is that an offer? :D
WaxBadger 18th Oct 2020, 4:56 AM
I wouldn't mind if he doesn't, hard working foxy needs to relax now and then, bet that neck and upper back have really have a lot of tense muscles from that lack of sleep.

I guess where Jason would sleep when he's on duty is on a cot! Dang, busy fox would forget many things-he would remind me of the military when they try pop culture and pronunciation of words and names. If you're a game show fan, there is the one Wheel of Fortune episode...

So good to see jason again. We really don't see enough of him these days. Little surprised he aint got himself lady lol
Long Tom 18th Oct 2020, 2:38 PM
And Howard did.

I wonder if it’s more the effort to get any shed fur out of the carpet?
kennethsarmstrong 22nd Oct 2020, 8:50 PM
I would think that most vacuums are designed to clean shed fur. I wonder what animals with scales use.
