Food Chain or Team Sport?


I heard someone refer today their position within the fire department as their place in the “food chain”.

Last time I checked, “food chain” and “brotherhood” didn’t work well together.

We’re not here to beat each other down, to prove our superiority, or to compare genitalia.
We’re here to serve.
We’re here to get the job done, and go home to our families at the end of the day.

If you can explain to me how “food chain” fits into that, maybe I’ll jump on your bandwagon.

The Fire Service isn’t a food chain.  It’s a team sport.
