No fires just a couple of first responder type calls.
Second week in a row we went for forcible entry and the caller met us outside. "Damn-it"
Hey check my page out, an actual picture of me on a fire. Its my back but I know who I am

|Body:||You stay up for 16 hours.
He's been up for 48 straight.
You take a warm shower to help you wake up.
The rain in the middle of the interstate keeps him awake.
You complain of a "headache", and call in sick.
He's chilled to the bone, hasn't eaten all day, has the flu, and then run's into a burning…

The city I work for is mostly a business/ technology office complex. Don't quote me on the numbers but we have something like 30,000 people that actually live in the city, but Monday through Friday our city swells to over 300,000 people. With six ALS engine companies, two ALS rescues, and one Truck company the call volume for 30,000 people isn't very high. This might be great for some people, but for me it makes for way to much down time. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy sleeping most nights, but…Continue

I spent a great deal of time constructing an intelligent post to a forum thread to find it had been closed to discussion, so I decided to post it on my blog. The whole vollie vs. career thing has just got to end. The fire service in this nation will continue to spin on its collective axis forever and there will never be resolution to this question, so why even ask it? In regard to the thread in question, I haven't seen any post regarding South Carolina and getting rid of vollies, so I don't…Continue

3+ months after the fall of 9 brave men in Charleston, South Carolina ..I'm still trying to make sense of it all. I'm angered at the veil of silence. I'm angered at the "good ole boy" system intact in that area.
Perhaps, I shouldn't be here speaking on this but then again I won't let their loss be forgotten.
God Bless them and their Families.

Despite getting a flat tire and having a nearly flat spare, I made it to my FOI test (ok, it was 5 minutes late). The test center personnel were extremely nice and after getting settled in, I finished the test in just under thirty minutes.
This caused me some panic, because I was certain that I had bombed it. However, I passed and got a really nifty and official looking piece of paper with my photo on it. So, I can now go through my department's clearing process (as soon as they write…Continue
