The Physiological & Mental Stressors of Fighting Fire

We now know, with certainty, that fire is not necessarily our worst enemy on the fireground. Its by-products are! Whether you’re a career, volunteer or paid-on-call firefighter, means that you can no longer approach what you do as a casual job or hobby.In this, our 51st episode of “5-Alarm Task Force,” Chief Anthony Correia joins us to discuss the specific physiological and mental stressors of fighting fire. His explanation begins with your visceral and mental response to a dispatch, through…See More

Our 50th Episode of "5-Alarm Task Force" and It's for YOU!

If I asked you what is the most important character trait for a firefighter, what would be your answer? Bravery? Strength? Stamina? They all sound imperative, right? Perhaps, but there is more to it than those. What could outrank those three aspects?Our guest on this, our 50th episode, is Captain/Instructor Chris Baker. In this podcast, Chris explains that it is your desire, no, hunger to learn, that will dictate the type of firefighter you are or will be. And mind you, this has nothing…See More

"Ted, Thanks for your message. All too often, some younger firefighters see "stuff" burning and think of it as all Class A material from the "ol' days!" Not even close!! Just as you pointed out, there is all type of new crap…"

"in many residential fires you run a risk of toxic elements in the smoke one of the nastiest is the fumes from pvc pipe and pvc insulation. this is highly toxic and highly irritating to the mucus membranes and lung tissue. a snootful can make you…"

Finding a New Fire Chief - Do We Look Within or From Outside?

The Chief of Department - a position that many firefighters aspire to and others...well, let's just say they don't aspire to. Yet, when there's a vacancy at the top, someone must be brought onboard to "steer the ship!"Just like in other businesses, those directed to find a new chief have two ways to choose from:1. Hire someone already working or volunteering for the department, or2. Open the position to candidates from outside the department.Which one should we choose?Our guest, retired Chief…See More

Smoke - What's In It?

OK, so you're a firefighter. You've seen smoke, you've smelled smoke and you may have swallowed a "snoot-full." How was that for you? Yet how much do you know about it? No, not it's behavior, but what's in it! Chief Robert Fling returns to underscore his first visit, "FACEPIECE ON!" And if you're still one of those cowboys who think a firefighter isn't a "real" firefighter until he/she gets their "snoot-full," you're wrong and maybe DEAD wrong. Listen in and pay attention to what Chief Fling…See More

This is Who We Are and What We Do!

I do my podcast, "5-Alarm Task Force," for you - my brothers and sisters in the fire service. Today's society is so different than when I grew up. Sometimes, that makes our job tougher. Just look what we have to do to help our communities understand how vital and precious sprinklers are in, at the very least, every new residential structure; not too mention commercial buildings too! And our jobs have changed…See More

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I've always loved the fire service. I grew up in the Boston area and visited many stations around the city and in the city. But there were no volunteer departments in the area. Thus, I devoted myself to the Red Cross. When I moved to NC it just so happened that there was a combination department just a half mile down the street, but I didn't know that. I walked in one day when the bay doors were open, just to look at the apparatus. An hour later, I walked out with an application and a polite request that I shave off my beard!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It's who we are and it's what we do.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
The two major issues today both deal with firefighter health. First, we have the Firefighter Fight Cancer initiative. With all the toxins and carcinogens that we face daily, it is taking far too high a toll on our personnel. The second issue is firefighter fitness. And this initiative must be applied across the board, from the probie to the chief and to every career, volunteer or paid-on-call firefighter. We are losing far too many firefighters, YOUNG firefighters, to preventable health issues. We MUST break this cycle!

"I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends"

Posted on April 25, 2018 at 2:28pm 0 Comments

With thanks to the Beatles (OK, Ringo) and the late, great Joe Cocker, that song has moved "mountains" when some couldn't even move "mole hills!" And that title rings true for many, if not most of us.  Of course, it also depends on our ability to discern those who are true friends from those people who are more acquaintances than friends. Often times though, that is difficult to do and it's not unusual for us not to want to make that distinction.

   We wanted to…

"The Times They Are A Changin'"

We have the great Bob Dylan to thank for those words. Funny how just six words can convey such a strong meaning across so many aspects of life. And for first responders in general and firefighters in particular, times are changing for us at a very rapid pace.

   Even if you've only been on the job for, let's say, five years, you'd got to admit that a great deal about the fire service has changed since 2013! For example, we've seen a great evolution of one of our…
