  • Go ahead and start your own group:) I'm sure there are several women on CM that would love to join. I saw the group you are talking about, for just having 20 members you would think they would be open to ALL firefighter wives. I found the "no volunteer allowed" rule rather rude. What is the fricken difference? The volunteers do the same thing and DON"T get paid. Whatever, start your own:) Good luck!

  • Thats my DHs biggest pet peeve. Some of the paid FFs here act like they are better than the volunteers. The county ones do it for free and dont think they have to be paid for someone to get thier help. Wonder if i could get very many ladies to join and be active if i started a group? hmm

  • I would say start your own group, but you'll have to be very active in promoting it because you won't be able to do a search for fire fighter moms. You'll have to do a lot of journal posts and join groups specifically for promotion.
