Hmm. Something I hadn’t thought much about. Definitely interesting, though a quick search doesn’t turn up anything too promising.
Also, not sure how compatible it is with my ethics.
Still, a useful idea. Thank you (& upvoted).
I wonder if military-style but non-aggressive organizations exist? They would make sense… wait a bit, I have an idea. Are there backoffice, analytical jobs in the fire service? Not a frontline fireman/firewoman, but something sort of a strategist. Making plans for national disasters, stuff like that, but still a bit uniform-wearing stuff with ranks and whatnot.
Those jobs exist in the police force and I would be very surprised if most countries didn’t have something like what you describe.
But even the police can be ethically problematic in a way that the fire service isn’t. It is debatable if all laws are worthy of enforcement. The fire service (and related, disaster mitigation services etc.) does not really have such dilemmas, I think they clearly accumulate so much positive karma that even if some aspects of their acitvities are questionable they are still having a very positive sum.
Oh yes, absolutely. That’s the main reason I’m not in law enforcement right now. Just wanted to point out that the analogue position exists and that it seems likely that such coordination positions exist within other (sorta similar) organizations.
