Why I Joined Fire/EMS
It chose me. If you ask, most of us will answer the same. We do what we do because we want to, because we feel we need to, and because we are proud of what we do. We make a difference in our communities. We dont do it for riches or glory or fame.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Making the difference that keeps people safe.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Keeping up with rapidly changing technologies. Maintaining funding in the face of shrinking budgets and reduced number of fires. Attracting the best candidates. Aligning pay and benefits to a level that will allow personnel to stay on the job, especially in EMS. Making Dispatch the fourth profession, establishing national standards for training and performance for 911, call-taking and dispatch personnel.

Good day!

I am the main man for IPN, the Incident Page Network, and I invite you to join IPN and be part of the largest, most comprehensive emergency notification service on the planet. IPN sends real-time alerts of ongoing incidents in your area, to your cell phone, PDA, laptop or any text-able device. Police, Fire, EMS, Weather, Traffic.... important news and information you need to make important decisions and be in-the-know as incidents occur, around the country and around the world.

Calls are entered under strict guidelines. You do not receive multiple updates with no useful information. You do not receive joke pages, spam pages, goof pages, or pages that do not inform. Over 21 federal agencies use our service and subscribe not only for the information we provide, but to watch over us and make sure we do it right. For example: if a call comes in for a building fire and the first company goes on-scene with smoke showing, you do NOT get paged. It could be a barbecue, or outside brush, or a furnace problem. But if companies are laying in and going to work and the boss confirms he has a job, that is good enough and we page it. Then you get updates with size-up, multiple alarms, special calls, mutual aid... the important critical information you need to do your job more effectively.

The service is completely customizable. You go online and using pull-down menus, specify what types of calls you want or don't want, from particular areas you want or don't want, even alarm levels! You can alter, change or delete as you wish, when you wish, without charge. IPN is also completely transportable: lets say you go on vacation and want to take the service with you. Simply go online and specify where in the country you are visiting, then use the pull-down menus to set what type of alerts you want. Then when you are back home, simply go online again to reset the service back to your home area. Neat!

We are not a cell phone company. We don't hold to you any contract and we don't demand silly payments every time you want to change something. We have 24/7 tech support, on line and over the phone. Our toll-free hotline is always manned with specially-trained dispatchers ready to page out calls instantly. With over 3000 dispatchers and over 100,000 public safety professionals subscribed to our system, nobody does it better than IPN.

This service normally costs $3,814.263.17 per month. [Got your attention now, didn't I?] But because the boss is holding my cocker spaniel hostage and demanding results or else, we have a special offer for you.

Become a dispatcher for IPN. You will provide important coverage in your area by feeding ongoing incidents into the system. You receive the service for free. You also qualify for our premium points system, which rewards you each time you send in a call. Points accumulate and can be traded in for gift certificates, pre-paid Visa cards, even a new scanner!

Learn more and apply by using this link:
In the section "how did you hear about IPN", use my name STEVE. We will start you off with 100 points just for signing up!

Thank you for your time, and we look forward to hearing back from you!

Well it was a very long night in Operations. Even cops who dont like firefighters had the dignity to put aside their petty feelings and realize that but for the Grace of God we go. But listening to the job on the radio and following along on CAD, one could not help but feel sick to the stomach. As I commented, we heard the ladder companies on the roof and knew they were in trouble. Things went south in a matter of minutes.

Then to watch it on local media and realize that these silly…

Blog city here I am. I have survived another edition of the Boston Carribean Festival, perhaps the biggest street party in Boston. For one day the city blocks off Blue Hill Avenue and Franklin Park and allows people to get crazy. And boy do they ever! Even in 100+ degree heat, thousands showed up to march in the parades [two of them!] and just have fun. Costumes were plentiful; some of the paraders were carrying 30 pounds of decorations on their backs.

Yes we had a few problems with…

Well here I am still waiting to get approved to go back on duty. I have been out since my auto accident on Nov 24 2007. Always wear your seat belt, people! Every trip, every time! Even with air bags deployed, I would have been dead if not for two straps and a buckle. No matter how good a driver you are, how skilled, how highly rated, there is some nitwit out there gunning for you. In my case the other driver blew a red light at moderate speed and the result was a T-bone. I suffered a fractured clavicle, concussion, sprained wrist and dislocated finger. Lucky for me there was a cop and ambulance waiting at the light. But the word 'rest' is a four letter word. The doctors prescribed that in order for the body and mind to heal. But daytime TV sucks and after a while the walls start to close in. Tests, more tests, MRI, CT, EEG, EKG... at least they didnt find the cuckoo in my head! But the dept physician has to certify me before I can resume terrorizing the city. So i wait.
