I can't say I disagree with you. Volunteer\paid on call firefighters generally work a full time job plus give of their time to help their communities. Not saying that warrants a discount. I didn't do it to receive discounts. Or be a hero. Buddy of mine talked me into it, I applied, was hired and did it for 25 years. I enjoyed helping people. I miss that part of it. I don't miss much else of it. I was paid on call, didn't do it to get rich either. I also knew what I signed up for as does every firefighter or LEO. If they're doing the job for a discount or to be a hero or the "glory", they need to find a different job.
