I was going though the list of officers (and aspiring officers) added to Firefighter Nation in the past few months and your profile came up. I have found FFN to be an excellent resource for networking and wanted to "meet" some of our new members. And while you're online, if you are interested in visionary and innovative emergency services discussion, come check out my blog at Firehouse Zen, part of the FireEMSBlog Network featured here. It got its start on here and has evolved into a great place for sharing new ideas for the job. Feel free to friend me here, or if you have a question, let me know.

Take care and stay safe,

Mick Mayers
