maybe i ought to turn in my Public Safety badge, i feel out of place.
i spent my military time as a Aviation Ordinanceman, handling bombs, missiles, & rockets, went through several fire fighting schools before they turned me loose on them.
next i went to work for the California Dept. of Transportation, where they let me go play in traffic, we were often at accidents before the First Responders, setting up traffic control so the site was controlled, & cleaning up the mess after everyone except the Highway Patrol had long gone, i also had Confined Space training, as well as Hazmat Training every year for about 33 years.
now i run a little business escorting oversize loads, we are told that we are not law enforcement, but, we are involved in traffic control & our main job is first, the public safety & 2nd to protect the cargo, if a load is 16 feet wide or more, the Highway Patrol is required to assist & they get paid very well, they are off duty & are paid overtime
