At 3:20 am August 4th of 2009 a firealarm was sounded over the Nikiski Fire Department radio frequency. It was what we call and Auto Aid from the Kenai Fire Department (when there is a fire in the City of Kenai our department sends our Ladder 1 either to scene or to cover their station, the same deal is contracted with their Engine 3).

Hey There! I hope that things are going well for you. I haven't been on the site much as of late. Lot's of studying for my EMT class. Only 2 weeks left. We have our "hands on" final on the 12th and our written final on the 17th. Man this has been a long class!

Hey there! Just dropped by to say hello. Not too much going on here. We have our annual open house and company inspection today. This past week we had a 2 story frying pan fire. Kept is confined to the kitchen and the stove. But it was a hot hot and humid night nonetheless. Stay Safe.

So one of my LT's is headed up to Anchorage and to the Kenai Pennisula for a vacation in a couple of weeks. Anything going on in Homer?

Just remeber there is no such thing as a rekindle. It means you didn't do you job right the first time! If the Doc's chew you out tell them to join you at 2:00am and then they can write their own paper work. That's usually stops them in ther tracks.

I do miss it up there, especially this time of year. So how was your first structure fire? Any Ah Ha! moments for you? I know that there was for me during my first one.
