The Chiefs Back Room Crew

This is a place where we can sit down, put our feet up and chill. Where the Boys and Girls can just be themselves. The Back Room or what most firefighters call a ''day room or rec room'' is the social point of every firehouse.See More

Corey Carr replied to Alex Kennedy's discussion New Officer and need ideas for training...
"Work on RIT drills and other thingsd of this nature. You can also do hose mazes and different size up drills. THese are all very important subjects that need to be covered. Also test your FF's on their knowledge of trucks and the first due area."

Corey Carr replied to SideCharlie's discussion Firefighters In The News For Off-Duty Crimes - Is It Fair?
"I think that it is a sketchy situation, because we are suppose to be public figures. I believe that this is a downfall to us, because we are known to help people not breaking laws. That is why it is more known when we make wrong decisions."

Corey Carr replied to Paul Doyle's discussion Video Camera and Phone Cameras
"Alright, on both my departments we have a zero tolerance for pictures and video. The only way we can use a video or picture is if we are okayed by the commanding officer and the owner of the property, vehicle, or belonging. From this we can only use…"

Corey Carr replied to Russ's discussion Does your department throw salvage covers?
"Yes our department does use the salvage covers on the apparatus. For example on a house fire we had a while back there was a room with a computer and family items that hadn't been sprayed or anything. So my partner and I gathered as much of the…"

Corey Carr replied to Devan Mills's discussion Volunteer Fire Departments Training
"In order to be able to even legally do anything on the fire scene you must have FF1. Though not everyone follows that rule it is a very important one. I was told when I joined that to even be able to ride the truck you must have FF1."
