Do You Know Why Building Types and Sprinkler Systems Are IMPORTANT?!?!?

The "fire service..." Those words excite many of us and/or, it scares others away. And that can encompass all manner of frightening thoughts, both in our hearts and minds! Our webinars are similar to the cartoons we watched as kids, where everything stops, except for those in the photos.Sure, it's summer-time, but that doesn't necessarily mean we stop doing what defines as as firefighters, and part of that is "learning." With that said, we invite you to join us on Tuesday, Aug. 16th at 6:30 PM…See More

Do You Know Why Building Types and Sprinkler Systems Are IMPORTANT?!?!?

Hey YOU! Do you know how a sprinkler system works? No! Not the one watering your grass! We're talking about a COMMERCIAL sprinkler system, like in an office or other commercial structure. Do you know how much water you need to feed from the FDC? Do you even know what an FDC is?!?!?Do you know the difference between Type I, Type II or Type III buildings? Do you have "big-box" stores, like club markets, huge grocery stores, etc., in your district? Have you pre-planned them? Have you practiced IN…See More

What do YOU know about building construction types?

Do you know the difference in building types. i.e. Type I or Type II? Will the "type" change the way you will fight this fire? Have you pre-planned or visited these buildings?And, how much do you know about sprinkler systems that protect some of the buildings in your community? What's a riser? Ever see the phone TV magic where, the hero uses his cigar lighter to set off a sprinkler and they ALL go off?Look you probably know something about the issues we raised above, but there is always MORE to…See More

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I've always loved the fire service. I grew up in the Boston area and visited many stations around the city and in the city. But there were no volunteer departments in the area. Thus, I devoted myself to the Red Cross. When I moved to NC it just so happened that there was a combination department just a half mile down the street, but I didn't know that. I walked in one day when the bay doors were open, just to look at the apparatus. An hour later, I walked out with an application and a polite request that I shave off my beard!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It's who we are and it's what we do.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
The two major issues today both deal with firefighter health. First, we have the Firefighter Fight Cancer initiative. With all the toxins and carcinogens that we face daily, it is taking far too high a toll on our personnel. The second issue is firefighter fitness. And this initiative must be applied across the board, from the probie to the chief and to every career, volunteer or paid-on-call firefighter. We are losing far too many firefighters, YOUNG firefighters, to preventable health issues. We MUST break this cycle!
