The Tailboard Talk guys discuss two topics on tonight's show. First, has the fire service tried pleasing the public we serve to the public's detriment? Have our practices of complying with every public wish caused the public more long term harm? Second, a wildland engine crew recognized the hazards of an operation they were performing but didn't report that to their supervisor, which led to burn injuries for one of the pump operators. How do we teach firefighters to speak up? What is it about our culture that keeps knowledgeable, well trained firefighters from making suggestions to their supervisors?
