This is part II of my deployment to Gustav and then IKE. Please read part one....Hurricane Deployment elsewhere in these blogs.

While at the airfield, a Police officer approached me and asked how many ambulances and personnel I had. I told him I had 15 units with a total of 30 personnel. He said "Hmmm... I might just have to commandeer you boys."

" Really?" I asked. "And how does that work? We work for FEMA, a Federal Agency."

He said..." I have the authorization of… Continue

Deployed to Hurricanes....Life with FEMA

Posted on September 19, 2008 at 11:25am 5 Comments

I have just returned from Texas hurricane duty for our friends at FEMA. I was part of a huge EMS presence in the Gulf region. I was in one of roughly 1000 ambulances based out of Kelly AFB in San Antonio Texas.

There were also 1100 tour buses and 300 taxis located nearby.

I originally went down for Gustav, taking some 30 hours to drive a convoy of 15 ambulances from Michigan to San Antonio. I spent 10 days in the heat, often eating MRE's ( which I later discovered that eating… Continue

Where are all the West Coast Firefighters?

Posted on February 18, 2008 at 10:58am 8 Comments

As you may or may not know, I hire firefighters in all 50 states to do side work swapping out TVs and other simple A / V equipment. I have been doing this for almost a year now and my question is.........where are all the West Coast firefighters? Are they too busy fighting forest fires? I know they can be busy but I have had very little response from California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho. Heck anything West of the Mississippi has been barely there. Do we on this side of that river just… Continue

Thanks for asking about the flags. They are made from PVC (hard) and include an American flags and POW-MIA (I was able to make a PGR flag as well). The flags are 12x18 and should be dressed for cruising only (as high speeds may cause the wood flag pole to break).

Depending of the flag(s) I have the poles set at $25.00 each (including postage to you) They attach to the bars of your sissy bar/back rest with plastic wire wrap cables (I include 3 per falg pole). I can send you pictures if you would like...let me know.

Stay safe...Ride Safe

No, not fire service, side work. And I can't believe they won't hire females. That's insane, and illegal. This was to check out some displays twice a week for me and it would have made you $600.00 but I got a firefighter in Springfield to do it. I needed a person fast and without contact with you I had to hire him. Too bad. You were a lot closer. But you can still sign up for future work. My e-mail is
