Hate Rants: Is this anyway to treat a brother/sister firefighter?

TORONTO, ONT (August 29, 2013) -- Earlier this week, Toronto Fire Chief Jim Sales announced that 2 city firefighters had been suspended indefinitely for sexist remarks made about colleagues on Twitter. Believe me, these firefighters made some very nasty comments. 

Toronto's top firefighter said,  'In the public domain it's…


Honoring the Prescott 19

During my career, I’ve covered a number of wildland fire campaigns as a video and photojournalist.  One thing I’ve learned is that when Mother Nature whips a firestorm, she does so with a vengeance. 

This past Friday night a single bolt of lightning ignited a blaze, which spread rapidly amid high heat, low humidity and strong…

In Wilmington DE -- A Promise Fulfilled

Since 2009 one of three engines companies (the department operates six) has been closed for 24 hours leaving five engine companies to serve the city of 90,000 (daytime).

Veteran responders: Remember back in the day -- before the internet -- when contact with one another was through print magazines or via "pen pals?" Back then we learned of LODDs, huge incidents, apparatus deliveries and job notifications through magazines like Firehouse, Fire Engineering, Fire Chief, JEMS and monthly…

Hey Lou,
We are about 20 Minutes from Fort Leonard Wood. Small world, just like I was telling another friend, we found out that we lived about an hour away from each other about 10 years ago.

Lou I would like to hae permission to reprint your blog "what if you had a fire....." I would like to have it published in all the local papers. You see we are a all Vol and our #'s and funding are shrinking every second of every day like everyone else. You are a very insightful man and wish you were closer in distance would love to have you come speak at a city council or county commisioners meeeting. If you allow me to reprint this I will AKE sure it is presented to all the city councils and the county commish's. Keep up the great work. TCSS
