Whats up with everyone complaining about TSA?

TSA gave me a pat down, they will give you a pat down if and when you fly so why fuss about it?

TSA has been giving pat downs for a while and its just now people have an uproar about it. People should be happy TSA cares about our security.

I find it fun when I am flying, I sit back and watch TSA screen people and spend the time laughing. You get to see so many uncomfortable…

Bunker Gear from E-Bay... is it reliable?

Posted on November 18, 2010 at 9:08am 5 Comments

Something is better than nothing right? Hmm, I keep telling myself that. I bought some bunker gear from E-Bay and will donate it to a brigade in the Philippines. I am hoping that it is reliable. I don't buy from E-Bay often and I have never bought firefighting items from E-Bay. I guess I will find out. Since I have not really been getting donations and I have been spending my own money to get gear. I decided maybe E-Bay is the best option. I am just hoping I am sent something that I could… Continue

I went to a local fire supply store today to buy a pair of boots so I can start to get more gear for when I go back to the Philippines and the store said they would donate some items. They gave me a massive discount on boots and then they donated 2… Continue

Lack of PPE

Firefighting in the Philippines is tough and dangerous, these are the heros of the Philippines. Notice the lack of PPE. Some have just a locally made jacket, some have no boots, no-one has gloves, some don't have anything to protect them from heat. SCBA's are not present. This is the life of a volunteer firefighter in the Philippines. Its hard work that gets not enough credit and all of these guys are volunteers. No one is paid, not one of them has undergone…


Firefighters, disasters, injury, and death

Guys, there are firefighters that were affected by the tropical storm and Typhoon that hit the Philippines a week ago. The last typhoon that hit us decided to stop and come back. It is now a tropical storm almost stationary and it is causing more and more rains in an already flooded area.


Disasters are bad and here in the Philippines we are getting pounded with rain everyday making the… Continue
