Brandon,

Come see us here on HHI any time.
The guy you remember used to be the captain of Engine 2 in Sea Pines. He was our training chief for several years, and was my boss while I was a captain in the training division. He recently moved across the bridges, and is now the deputy chief of the Bluffton Township Fire District. I still see him some - he's in the hazmat team command group and still does some training for the team.

I don't remember the name, but there was a South Bend officer on our Accreditation evaluatin team last year. I know he does swiftwater in the classes at the East Race. We had a couple of conversations about it, since I do swiftwater as well.

The next time you visit, I'll get you in touch with Mick Mayers. He's a Notre Dame football addict from waaaay back.

Well if anything, what I got out of this was the chance to read the literary work of Mark Twain in the body of a fireman named Brandon Roark. Your summation of my intentions was succinct and well thought out...

Except... resource typing terminology is for accurate paper pushing and getting paid, that does not forgo our ability to use regionalized terminology, in fact, good luck trying to stop it.

Your words about tradition and the fire service is so true. I know that where you work, you've got at least 100 years of service and traditions. I hope someday to be able to travel through your part of the world to say hi.

In the meantime by friend, stay safe and always be yourself. What a pleasure to have been able to meet and listen to your philosophy. I find it refreshing.

My best, Mike from Santa Barbara

By the way, with resource typing issues being the topic here, what would you consider this?

Oh yea, just noted that you are from South Bend. That is where my mother was raised years ago. I guess you can say that I have some roots in your first in... : )) ms
