Through the Lock; A NEED to Know Skill

I recently updated the through-the-lock setup that I carry in my gear (see pics below).  For years I had used a modified set of locking pliers (ViseGrip style) with separate key tools and shove knife. This setup has proven extremely effective at both alarm runs and working fires.

 

I've decided to change my setup to a modified "Channelok" setup.  It's going to allow me merge 2 tools into 1 and I'll be able to store it in a smaller pocket.  I am actually using an Irwin/ Vise…

Forcible Entry:What Are You Doing?!?!

Forcible entry is always an interesting discussion around the service.  On one side, you've got the forcible entry purists (myself included).  These guys can force a door with a safety pin, a rock and a piece of duct tape.  Despite their McGyver-esk skills, they prefer the irons.…

research paper

I am writing my research paper for english on should it be nessecary for a career firefighter to have basic EMT training. I was going to try to get some input from true career firefighters.

I need me a tiller truck

OK everyone, you read right, Happy needs a tiller. Somewhere out there is my perfect rig, let me describe it to you:



circa 1976-1980 open cab or white top american lafrance 100' tiller drawn aerial ladder truck.

Here's the great part, the ladder DOES NOT need to be operable, tested, heck if it's missing, I'm still game.

If I have to drive it across this great land, or have it shipped, I will do… Continue
