Organized Chaos. That’s the phrase that comes to mind when I think of the crew at a fire station getting ready to head out on a run. The way it could possibly appear to a bystander watching the guys getting ready.
It’s been many years since I’ve been at a fire station when the tones have gone off, but I doubt that much has changed… When the tones go off, everything stops and there is that perception of organized chaos that follows. But, really, there is no chaos…because everyone knows exactly what his or her job is and what they need to be doing. Both at the fire station as they get ready and on scene…again each person knowing exactly what they need to be doing.
