Our 50th Episode of "5-Alarm Task Force" and It's for YOU!

If I asked you what is the most important character trait for a firefighter, what would be your answer? Bravery? Strength? Stamina? They all sound imperative, right? Perhaps, but there is more to it than those. What could outrank those three aspects?Our guest on this, our 50th episode, is Captain/Instructor Chris Baker. In this podcast, Chris explains that it is your desire, no, hunger to learn, that will dictate the type of firefighter you are or will be. And mind you, this has nothing…See More

Finding a New Fire Chief - Do We Look Within or From Outside?

The Chief of Department - a position that many firefighters aspire to and others...well, let's just say they don't aspire to. Yet, when there's a vacancy at the top, someone must be brought onboard to "steer the ship!"Just like in other businesses, those directed to find a new chief have two ways to choose from:1. Hire someone already working or volunteering for the department, or2. Open the position to candidates from outside the department.Which one should we choose?Our guest, retired Chief…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!

"I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends"

Posted on April 25, 2018 at 2:28pm 0 Comments

With thanks to the Beatles (OK, Ringo) and the late, great Joe Cocker, that song has moved "mountains" when some couldn't even move "mole hills!" And that title rings true for many, if not most of us.  Of course, it also depends on our ability to discern those who are true friends from those people who are more acquaintances than friends. Often times though, that is difficult to do and it's not unusual for us not to want to make that distinction.

   We wanted to…
