Being a member of the Folsom VFD, I am sure you know Barrett Pittman. He is "all that" and a bag of chips.

I spent a lot of time in LA as a Firefighter/Inspector for FEMA. Seven months in NOLA for Katrina and 51 weeks in Lake Charles for Hurricane Rita.

Check out the some of the Groups, I have started up "Close Calls" an area to tell your story of what you did and should not of so others learn. "Roll Calls" this is another group that allows you to tell us about your station and district. "Trainers Corner" is another area that you can read about issues other trainers have or deal with. As well if your not a trainer you can ask questions or state concerns you have. If you have a hard time locating them just go to my site and look at the bottom left hand corner.

Enjoy, be safe and remember we all come home.
