Welcome to the Nation and I hope you get as much out of the interaction here as I have had. It's a great resource. While you are online, I'd also suggest checking out my blog, Firehouse Zen, over on the FireEMSBlogs network.
FHZ is a little different than the rest, as our discussion is supposed to remain civil and cerebral. As we say, "It's brain food for Mongo". So come on by and check it out and if you are on Facebook, you can "like" our page over there as well. Stay safe-
dave, welcome to the group.. the sites fun and has interesting discussions.. it's nice seeing how other departments and countries work, but i love seeing all the different apparatus used all over the world.. word to the wise, if you wanna trade patches be careful.. there are a few people here looking to get one and not reciprocate.. i will not mail anything till i have something in hand, but you do what you want.. my goal now is not to get a patch, i do not collect them.. but rather, being a brother watch your back and warn you like we should all do good or bad, it's what the brotherhood is all about.. if you wanna add me as a friend, great .. if not that too is OK, my message is intended to welcome you to the group..
be safe and god bless..
David, Welcome to the Firefighter Nation. I am glad you joined the group.There is lots to do, read and be involved with. Your participation and involvement is important to us all. Have fun and look around.
