Hey there Chief..I miss your smiling face a smart witted humor, there is not another like you, you trained me right and I will always thank you for that..you know how to take a vehicle apart like no one else I know..miss working at your side as well as the rest of Bridgton you guys are the best - but until I win the lottery I need to stay in Florida and work, FF and EMS is definately different from our neck of the woods..and by the way you are a rigger..no doubt--Karen
Yes, your right. A rigger / wrecker operator can do wonderful things. Especially when you train together before the incident and there is a system in place to get that operator and that wonderful rig to the scene when you need it. But it's fun to tell the class, sorry no vehicles to acheive this scenario. HeHe ! Let me add, that sometimes the perfect vehicle is not available or can access. I ran a structural collapse several years ago that we called a crane to the scene. Problem was it couldn't make it up the grade. Learned something new that day. Couldn't get a wrecher boom close enough. Had a great rigger on the scene, but no high point. Oh well, best wishes for you. Come see us in Pennsylvania for the trench weekend May 1-3. We have had folks from Maine before. The program began in Baltimore County , Maryland and now moved to Penn. Usually 8 to 10 open trenches going at a time. Lots of stuff for newby to technician levels. Need to preregister. This is a great program and cann't recommend enough. Jim Young
