Hello from NC. Thanks for the comment on rope rescue group. You have some great pics, especially the Denver Drill. I was talking to a student about that just last night. Also like the building pics. Do you have any objection to me using the pics in my next FF rescue or building construction classes. I also tech trench and the utility pic will probably show up in it to when talking about ICS. My grandfather was a contractor in the Charlotte area for years and his last project was to build a development called "Pawtucket". Hope everyone is safe up there and doing well. Jim
