About Me:
As I noted earlier I was brought up in the Fire Deapartment. I officially became a Firefighter in 1987 for the Katonah Fire Department, the same department in which my father served, serving on the same rescue company that he once had (He passed away of a heart attack when I was 10 an all to common occurance for firefighters). It was located in Westchester County, just north of NYC. It was established in 1874 and was steeped in tradition and pride. This is where I learned my base. At age 19 I became a proffesional Firefighter for the City of Columbia, SC. It is the capital city of South Carolina. I served most of my time there as a member of a truck company firmly cementing my roots as a truckie. From there I moved to the beach where I served as a Paramedic with Horry County Ems and Finally in my current position as a Lieutenant and Paramedic for the City of North Myrtle Beach, SC. I also work part time as a Captain for the Calabash Fire Department which lies just above the NC/SC border. I have been a part of many specialty teams and organizations including SCTF-1. I have also participated heavely in teaching in both South and North Carolina

Hallo NMB Truckie

Thank you very much for your kind message. Things are changing rapidly here by us. We will not send any one to Myrtle Beach this year because of our situation in Balticum and Afghanistan. Maby next year. If I come next year I will get in contact with your department.
If you have any questions about our tactic you are allways wellcome to ask. The biggest difference from my point of weiv are, that we enter allmost all bulidings during the fire, and we use a very limmited amount of water. Our hoses are very thin and light, but we operate with a very high pressure on the water. It is very unusual to use more than 50 gal. in a normal structural fire. But now and then we do have the big ones that are dealth with the american way! allmost all our firefighter are crosstrained to fill out any job on the team.
Our chain of command are a littele different as well. We allways have a On scene commander on the shift. He will be in charge for any size of operations no matter what. He can decide to break the scean up in fractions and call for a more on scene commanders. All the scenes that are geographical connected will be under his command no matter the size. If the accident are large scale he will be supported by a on scene commander from the Police. They will take care of the scene together and build up a commandpost. From here they will be supported by an ambulance leader and eventually a medical coordinator.
The politicians are very aware of who they let qualify as on scene commanders, because when we are in action we do have free acces to the finances! We are allowed do allmost any thing to solve the job!
I would also like to learn a lot about the american way to do the job. This summer I will go Burbank in L.A. with my family. I do hope that there will be time to visit the local firedepartment.

Kindly regards
