This is a kind of touchy subject because every person is different and how they handle stress is myriad as well.
there are those of us who are Cursed with a photographic memory and in our line of work the trauma we deal with can take its toll in ptsd.
now many people would say its not a curse but a blessing! NOT REALLY!!

had a little vehicle rescue refresher training today to give the new guys a little practice with the jaws of life.
our trainer was excellent in explaining the different methods and options for cutting a vehicle open.

early morning fire in Eldred Pa Numerous companies and ems services responded, multiple patients transported to hospitals for smoke inhalation. traffic was routed to alternate routes due to main street being closed off completely.
no serious injuries but it was a long battle (over 4 hours) for the crews who responded!
Hats off to the guys and gals of Eldred, Port Allegany, Coudersport, Olean, Roulette. Knapps Creek, Smethport, Otto, and Portville
Thank you Ted, there is so much dedication by my fellow firefighters indeed, usually working by improvising due to lack of equipment but usually achieving the end goal which is to spare other peoples lives and maintaining our safety. its best to be part of this network, the greatest weapon fireman needs is Knowledge.
