Gary Stevenson replied to Mark L Gundert's discussion Finding family members of deceased firefighters for our Firefighters Memorial Wall in the group Honoring Our Fallen
"I don't know exactly how to help but I think you've started by using a good medium, the Internet. I know I've had success with social media sites like Facebook and Classmates to reconnect with friends from over thirty years ago.…"

Gary Stevenson replied to Pierre-Louis Lamballais's discussion What about nozzle training? in the group "The Training Cadre"
"There is no one 'standard' to firefighting tactics. Some departments use smooth bore nozzles while a lot do not. Hitting the thermal layer with controlled/proper streams has its application but it is not the standard. Many U.S. F.D.s…"

Gary Stevenson replied to Pierre-Louis Lamballais's discussion What about nozzle training? in the group "The Training Cadre"
"The quote is one long running sentence and means what it means. Every fire department, even ones who mutual aid with each other have varying philosophies on varying tactics. I Google firefighting penciling and get a slew of hits. We are in…"

Gary Stevenson replied to Pierre-Louis Lamballais's discussion What about nozzle training? in the group "The Training Cadre"
"I think you may have better luck searching for the technique also known as penciling. You will find articles on this. One reason it probably isn't a huge topic of conversation is that it is a controversial topic for some departments. I cannot…"

Gary Stevenson replied to Pierre-Louis Lamballais's discussion What about nozzle training? in the group "The Training Cadre"
"Doesn't hose handling, fire attack, fire streams, and the like incorporate what you ask? I am sure you can look at any of the magazine site's online content and find these. If not, please enlighten us US FF's on "real nozzle…"

Gary Stevenson replied to Scott Taylor's discussion Give this some thought! in the group "The Training Cadre"
"Cutting the carriage bolt heads is what I meant by "attacking the hardware". Cutting a hand hole is good as long as you know what is securing the other side. I've seen some strange devices. It's appears to be an outward swinging…"

Gary Stevenson replied to Scott Taylor's discussion Give this some thought! in the group "The Training Cadre"

Gary Stevenson replied to Mike Schlags (Captain Busy) Retd's discussion Fire Helmets - 12 Questions...
"1) Do you prefer Cairns verses the Bullard/Phoenix styles? • We recently went to the Cairns and it gets mixed reviews. I like the Bullard-style as it's easier to keep clean. It is also about an 1½" shorter. 2) Would you…"

Gary Stevenson replied to FFN WebTeam's discussion Over $8M In Unused Leave Paid To Houston Firefighters
"It's media/political induced news. Replace HFD with about any similar sized FD in the nation and the attacks are similar. Government workers, specifically public safety is under attack. A couple of reads: The Shameful Attack on Public…"

Gary Stevenson replied to SideCharlie's discussion Dallas Fire's Website Promotes Respiratory Safety ... Not Really
"Maybe the photo is exactly what it's intended to do. To start a dialog on firefighter safety. Maybe we aren't supposed to analyze the photo and then knock the operations of a specific FD but instead measure ourselves against it. We can…"
