There is nothing more exhilarating than to go round and round in a 65000 pound class A.

Hey Chief, You ok with the hurricane. Hope your doing well. Also, I just noted that you are with Houston FD. I had the opportunity years ago to visit your hazmat station, the one surrounded by barbed wire. Stopped there in my RV with my family and your guys treated my family like one of their own. Helped me fill my water tank and gave me a patch. You work with the best.

oh yea, one more thing, the article on Mercury was very well done and thought out. A typical response I have seen is the mom who catches the kids playing with the thermometer and then vacuums the house. buddies of mine with Region IX have shared some stories with me about how bad these calls can be. Your background in hazmat appears to be pretty well rounded. I am assuming that you might have an EPA background, Coast Guard or ? Does your department have a toxmedic program? I am trying to get one here in California and could use some help... Mike

I think your site is one of my favorite sites now. I thought I had access to cool hazmat photos... Your the man! I also thought your Texas Hazmat graphic was exceptionally cool. Let's see, what else... oh yea, anyone who likes the Rolling Stones... years ago, and I mean YEARS AGO, I was visiting my folks in Dallas and while driving on the LBJ freeway, heard the radio announcer put out a call for anyone who has EMS training to call a number to work at the Rolling Stones Concert. I was so there, and backstage to boot! Are you anywhere near Dallas?

I'm also into, very much into hazmat with a specific emphasis on the decontamination procedures used and protecting hospitals. My wife's a nurse... : )

I look forward to having the chance to get to know you and pick your brain!

In the interest of fire and life safety, Mike from Santa Barbara
