Good morning everyone. I think this site is great. Let me introduce myself, my name is Tom Wallace and I am currently a 2nd Assistant Chief in a small department in Weedsport, Ny. I have been a member now for 22 years, spent 7 as a Lieutenant, 3 as a Captain and now on my 2nd year as 2nd Asst. Chief. I have taken multiple training classes. Most recently finished Hazmat incident Command and am currently enrolled in the NIMS I300 which starts next week. I am also a American Heart Heartsaver First Aid instructor as well as a CPR/ AED instructor. I do believe with what Russ says fire have changed in a large way since I first joined. They are hotter, larger, and have more chemicals involved. So yes training and preparation are big to teach the new or younger members. Like Russ says Everyone Goes Home.

Hello group!Thanks for inviting me to the group. I am pretty new to the Fire service and eager to learn as much as I can. Just three weeks ago I graduated the 1152 Basic FF Course. Previous training includes NIMS, CPR, Fire Ground Simulation,and LZ command and Ops. Now in class for Haz-Mat Ops. I previously worked with Marion County EMS as an EMT-I for about four years. The last thirteen years have been running the family business. About 15 months ago decided to join Mullins Fire-Rescue as a volunteer and I just absolutely fell in love with the fire service. Thanks again Mike for the invite.

Greetings Training Cadre, thank you for inviting me to this group. Please let me introduce myself. I’ve been in the Fire Service since 1965 (that makes me an old guy) and teaching emergency responders since 1974. New York State Municipal Training Officer, NYS Fire Instructor, 8 years as Fire Chief in Pennsylvania. My passion now is NIMS & ICS, I believe that if we are serious about safely taking care of our folks we must improve our emergency scene leadership (ICS) on all levels. That’s the key to our success. Thanks for all you do.
