Afternoon James, The last time I did a "hose dummy" like that, I unrolled a couple sections and made it into a 6 ft "figure" and then used duct tape to hold things together. I used the tape at the top of the legs, waist, back of the arms, and at the neck. Hope this helps a little bit.

Realplayer files are usually .flv files. You can convert them in realplayer to a windows media file .wmv then you can use them in a Powerpoint presentation.

We are preparing to have a map training session this month and I am trying to come up with some ideas on different ways to present the information. Maps is a great "winter" training as it is very classroom oriented. What are some ideas of how to present map training? Thanks!

I am looking for ideas for a class that I am putting on sometime this year. The class will be over R.I.T. I'm looking for some ideas on things people have done in the past. Any ideas will help. Thank you

Help...Anyone know of a department that received funding through the FIRE Prevention Grant Act for fire prevention trailers? If so, I'd like to obtain a copy of their grant proposal. My department is in the process of establishing an arson investigation unit and we would like to secure a vehicle to carry all of the equipment. We are also hoping to purchase a fire prevention trailer. As with most other departments, money is tight so we are looking at any other feasible ways to obtain money. Thanks in advance

The Gas Monitor Simulator App (Gas Sim Version 1.3) was launched yesterday on the iTunes App Store. Update now and contact John for a free demo code to try it out. It's free, what's stopping you?
Do you have an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch? Download the app and try it out.
