Cocoanut Grove Nightclub - Sixty-Eight Years and 492 Reasons to Remember

Posted on November 28, 2010 at 10:30am 4 Comments

Ever wonder why occupancies with revolving doors have outward swinging doors to the left and/or right of them? Ever wonder why exit lights stay illuminated in movie theaters? Why exits at restaurants and places of public assembly (to name a few) swing outward? Or why your child’s elementary school is restricted from decorating the hallways with colorful artwork? The answer in part - Cocoanut Grove, November 28,… Continue

Lasting Impressions

5 years later, Chief Page’s influence lives on

Over the course of a lifetime, each us will experience events or meet certain individuals that leave an indelible mark in our memory—a lasting impression that changes our lives. In some cases, the memories of these events and/or people bring about great sadness; for others, they become influential experiences that set the course of their careers.

For me, that event occurred on May 28, 1977. It was a warm summer evening… Continue

The Fire Service Trifecta

Posted on July 28, 2009 at 9:48pm 4 Comments

Departmental excellence comes from a proven action plan, not a high-stakes bet

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to participate in a site visit of a department applying for re-accreditation. As a long-term student of the fire service, I’ve always found value in visiting other departments and learning how they operate and seeing what tools and techniques they’ve tried and/or rejected. I’m always amazed by the creative minds and innovative methodologies that make our… Continue

I did get a lot out of it. How often do things that go exactly as planned? Last year I read something from the USFA's technical report series on fireground communications. It said something to the effect that we spend a lot of time training manipulative skills, and very little time training stress tempered communication skills. As a result, it seems like communication is always a huge problem (too much talking on the radio, incomprehensible shouting into the facepiece, not answering the radio, and so on). I've always learned more from failure than from success, but then again, I can be a stubborn man! I discussed the class with my B/C and we're going to work on our command structure, strategy and tactics, and radio discipline for big box fires. It was very beneficial for me to be the Division Bravo supervisor and take a turn at IC, even though we were behind the 8 ball. The K-12 saws sort of sucked, but anyone who didn't take something valuable away from that class either wasn't paying attention or expected to be entertained rather than educated. I didn't think it was that bad at all. Of course, I'm my own worst critic, and I hate when things do go smoothly, especially if I'm the one teaching! Anyway, I appreciate what you do. You're a great instructor. Good luck in your new role with N. Las Vegas!
