NEED 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.

Wheel and engine fire simulation that were put to the test at S.A. Emergency Care today. Fuel supply (Jet A1) were extended to both motor and wheel assembly giving a more realistic effect.

I started three months ago making up 1 to 3 page training or safety bulletins and handing them out at our monthly meeting.First one was difference between Class A & B foams and uses.Last month was seatbelt use and this month is going to be on lightweight construction.We are a small volunteer dept. and any training I can get in I can.

Does anyone have any good footage of Apparatus rollovers or accidents? We are working on our Safe Drivers Training Course and would like to show some clips that will hopefully hit home with our guys. We want to dismiss the thought that 'it can't happen to me". We have looked all over You Tube and found a few but if you have something let me know. Thanks and be safe.

Most recently my medical lt and I came up with the idea to use glad press-n-seal wrap over are scba masks when we practice search and rescue. We are working on making a templete to cut out a properly fitting piece or wrap.

Just looking thru the press and seel rap makes it look like you are in very heavy smoke well allowing you to see outlines of objects in rooms that you are in.

Just an idea for any department that likes to train with EMS crews my department has in the past had a mock Deer Hunting accident we used public hunting land and had two hunters injured in the woods and used 2 way radios to locate and treat patients. Its a good training for radio communications as well as using various equipment to retrieve a lost or hurt individual
