Dolph Holmes replied to Brandon Guttery's discussion Incident Ground sitreps in the group Incident Command & The Chief Officer
"I have always been used to the 10 mn rule in the first hour and then you can ramp back after that. When you hit the 24th hour in is usually a bit less to report but an hourly report should be given if only to state that there are no new updates from…"

Dolph Holmes commented on Mike France's group Firefighters Supporting Cancer Awareness
"To all those who will paint their trucks pink, Please do not put any comments on the trucks. The color alone shows your support in the fight against breast cancer. Too many politically correct government officials are finding ways to take away from…"

Dolph Holmes replied to Jessie Shaffer's discussion Did Anyone Else Have This Problem?
"now you sound like the normal probie jitters! Don't fret yourself to death! How did your first fire go? If it went well then remember the good things that happened. As for being forced into the fire... You are part of a team. We all screw up…"

Dolph Holmes replied to Jessie Shaffer's discussion Did Anyone Else Have This Problem?
"Jesse, after the deep breath you need to focus. You will be assigned a specific job and if you focus on that job you will do well. The mentor should be aware that you have anxiety and should do some simple skills drills with you to get over the…"

Dolph Holmes replied to Ashley Renee Miller's discussion Juniors in diffrent companies? in the group Training our Future [ Jrs.] Firefighters
"Thanks James for the NY clarification. I was on the EMS side in NY so did not realize that! The BSA Explorer program is recognized in most places because there is great oversight. Good luck Ashley and keep learning from all sources."

Dolph Holmes replied to Ken Wilson's discussion Your view on young EMTs
"Most all of the responses have addressed the legality and I am mixed on that. Age does NOT denote maturity to do the job. I know some over 30 year olds that should not be doing the job! Since each state is responsible for issuing their own…"

Dolph Holmes replied to Zachary Wolfe's discussion Is there too much technology?
"I have to agree with you! As hospitals have gone more high tech and it has moved out in the field we are losing some of the basic skills to machines. I have not seen the sat of 96 but 0 resps...that is VERY scary. As a partner to a new EMT I had…"

Dolph Holmes replied to Ashley Renee Miller's discussion Juniors in diffrent companies? in the group Training our Future [ Jrs.] Firefighters
"Ashley, a lot of it is controlled by state laws. Each state can have a different way of implementing and acting on these laws. In Maine the Bureau of Labor sets standards for firefighters and the age restrictions on what can be done is spelled out…"

Dolph Holmes replied to Mike Schlags (Captain Busy) Retd's discussion Does your fire engine carry an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)? If you don't, why not?
"Our engine that operates extrication equipment has an AED, Jump kit with advanced equipment and some stuff for rehab. As a rural dept we thought it best since we only have one ambulance and mutual aid can be a long way off sometimes."

Dolph Holmes commented on Mike France's group Training our Future [ Jrs.] Firefighters
"Well put Bob! (Pay attention, he has 6 years on me) Television is a portrayal of things and the line between real and created has been blurred so much it is hard to tell fact from fiction. Even the recreations (ala Rescue 911) were not quite…"

Dolph Holmes commented on Mike France's group Wildland Search and Rescue Team
"Anyone have a high angle rope team? Years ago when I was into mtn climbing I taught a few teams the basics on rope use. I am much slower now and would love to get back to working with some teams (just for training) and to see what kinds of things…"

Dolph Holmes commented on Mike France's group Railroad Firefighting

Dolph Holmes replied to Rachel's discussion Juniors and Training/Certification? in the group Training our Future [ Jrs.] Firefighters
"Tom, i'll second you on that! Anything you can do to be ready when that magical 18 comes should be a plus. I know of no age stipulation on being able to do CPR. If you are certified I don't care how old you are! (I am getting too old to do…"
