I don't know about you, but it seems like when the public (and a lot of the time law enforcement too) doesn't know what to do, or doesn't understand something, or when something seems wrong but its not an actual crime, fire, or EMS call taking place, they call the FD.
I'm certain we could dedicate a whole website to calls that we come back from, shaking our heads saying "how did they do that? Why did they even call us?" We don't complain too much though, like we say it's, "job security."
So basically, we have to know a little about as many things as we can. A lot of that comes through training, talking to the older guys, and then just straight up life experience combined with thinking outside the box. It's just like the old saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none."
