The fire service is steeped in history and tradition. One of our oldest and most notable traditions is firehouse communal meals. The history of eating together actually dates back to our earliest days. Back then, when firefighters were hired, they lived in the firehouse and didn’t get to go home. So cooking and eating meals was part of everyday life for them. As time passed our Union successfully fought to make positive change. We saw our fixed work schedules established, and a limit of hours we were required to work each week. However, the meals stayed. Firefighters recognized then, as we do today, the value of eating together. Our job requires us to put our life on the line for a perfect stranger, and to do so, we must depend on our co-workers. No better bond is established between people than when they sit down and “break bread” together. Some may say that history should be updated and traditions are bad. However, private sector business studies have actually found that workplace productivity, and employee synergy, dramatically improved when their employees eat meals together. Firefighters didn’t need an expensive study to tell us what we already knew: When you treat each other like family, the rest just works itself out. Today people will try to change us. They will say the fire service needs to run more like a business. They call us “resistant to change” and “stuck in our ways”. They’re right. We refuse to change. We embrace our history, because in no other “business” do employees refer to each other as “Brother” and “Sister”. So as we sit down and continue to break bread together, it is our humble way of saying... “I am my Brother’s keeper.” ... See MoreSee Less
