Fit Firefighters Daily Checkoffs...

Be Physically Ready for Duty- Your Daily Fitness Checkoffs.

At the beginning of each and every shift firefighters, EMTs and medic meticulously go through and check their gear (or at least they should be) to make sure that it is ready for the challenges of the day. Our equipment must be functioning properly and our rigs must be fueled and ready to go. The question that I also want you to think about is whether or not your…

Philadelphia's loss can be a gain

 There is no better example of a society's failure to protect its members than a fire that could have been prevented. This tragic loss in Philadelphia is such an example.  While the community attacks the fire department, so many other issues are not realized, most importantly the opportunity for changes supporting prevention is lost.

The stage for this fire and the opportunity to prevent it from happening was set long before that early morning of July 5th.

 While finding a…

EMS: A Verb.

EMS

To me it’s a verb. It’s the action. It’s providing comfort to someone on the scariest day or night of their life. It’s the want, the drive, the need to be present in someone’s emergency. It’s the insane desire to make things okay for someone else. And if you can’t make things okay, make them as close to okay as you can.

 

It’s a look. Your patient who has laid in bed for 3 days with no one realizing they haven’t been going out or doing their usual tasks. The look in…

Are You Weird? Me too.

To work in EMS, you must possess the following qualities:

 

1. Must be willing to leave your family at the dinner table in the middle of a meal to go and save someone else’s family.

2. Must not be squeamish around blood, saliva, snot, urine, and use your imagination to fill in this gap with any other bodily fluid that might come flying in your direction.

3. Must have the understanding that not every call you go on is going to result in everyone leaving the scene…

Thug attacks firefighter at PBFD board meeting

Excerpt with permission from pipenozzle dot com: 

Video recordings of public meetings are legal under Connecticut open meetings statutes. The Groton Town Council records its meetings and places the video online for the public. The PBFD board does not record its  meetings, but prefers to hide behind euphemistic agendas and cryptic meeting minutes. Firefighter Bryan Quilter has, since Ackley took office a year ago, performed a valuable and courageous public service (in…

The future of the fire service

Where is the fire service heading? What is our mission? Who will lead the industry? These questions - and many more - are at the forefront of the fire service as we move forward. I can only guess what the future holds based on past trends, and the one thing that is truly certain is that there will be immense change in our profession. 9/11 changed the fire service. So has the rise of natural disasters, mass shootings, chemical weapons attacks, and other threats. But our…

Wildfire Solution Concept Discussion

Okay guys so here goes. I'm a volunteer firefighter out of MoCo, MD and I'm doing a master degree on 911 Telecommunications Upgrades. As a career, I'm an engineer and after the AZ tragedy I got to working on this idea. (See picture). It's an industrial strength positive pressure system. In theory, it is supposed to combat a wildfire system by using powerful fans to blow it back against its burn path and even blow it out. It's just a concept and I want to see what you guys think. I'm…

Taking care of ourselves

I have always felt that if I take care of myself first, I am better able to help others.  If I am successful at my career or my life in general, I can share this with other young people who are trying to find their way in life.  It is not easy but success is possible when you have a plan and have self discipline.  In the fire service, mentoring programs can really benefit the new, the old and the department.  As always, take care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally.  The job…
