Hi everyone. I know this is Firefighters & EMS. I hope my law enforcement wings don't offend.
Maybe we should take this to the 'discussion forum'? I will answer your questions there.
How long did it take you too tell your department that you were an atheist? Did you enter the department as one? What was the reaction?
Thanks for your service Lt. Harbin! I know the chief and company officers wouldn't think of my less if I came out as an atheist in my department, just because I have proven myself as a good firefighter and an upstanding person. Though many members in our small community would probably react negatively to the idea of having an Atheist and my default "immoral" public servant in their town. Having a group and forum like this is perfect for discussion and venting for firefighter's and EMT's.
Where are you from Wil? How long have you served?
Sounds good to me! I have been in Fire/EMS for almost two years and my department is located in Southern Utah! I haven't "comeout" as an atheist in my department. I would definitely worry about my job if I did. I work in a small town of 400 people (spikes up too 3,000 during the summer) and it is an entirely Christian/Mormon, conservative town!
Great to see that there is a group of freethinking firefighter/EMT's!
