Hi Martin

Tell me about your department. How many firefighters, response area and equipment. I have been in the fire service for over 37 years and now own a fire training agency. We train all over the world and maybe we can help you with your training or get you in contact with those that can help in your region.

Martin, I am so proud to know that you would consider me your big brother. That's it, were now officially related my brother from a different mother! LOL : )

I've been doing this job since I was 18 and I am turning 55 in January. My background includes working as a paramedic, flight paramedic, neonatal intensive care unit paramedic, firefighter, fire engineer, fire inspector, chemical facility inspector, apparatus driver, fire captain, hazmat team member and a bunch of other stuff... The point here is that I probably have the answer to whatever question you may have my friend. Just ask and thanks for your friendship. Stay safe little brother. Mike from Santa Barbara

Hello from Santa Barbara Martin! How wonderful for you to be on the FFN. I hope there is something that I can share with you to help you do your job better. I look forward to being your friend. I've never had the chance to talk with someone from your country. I live in Santa Barbara, California and have been involved with the fire service since 1973. I look forward to hearing back from you and getting to know one another. Stay safe buddy! Mike
