Violent Incident Protecting Emergency Responders which is what the state police use here in KY for violent situations like drunk and disorderly, drug use, approaching houses that could have guns when your responding to domestic abuse issues. Teaches you how to enter, talk, communicate, etc.

Looking for this EMS gentleman.docxI am looking for the gentleman in the photo whom I believe lives in the area of Georgia. He has done nothing whatsoever wrong, nor am I chasing him for anything, but someone is operating in the UK on the pretence of being him and attempting to extort money from innocent people and I think he should know all about it. After all, this is not only an indictment on him but also on the trust people have in the EMS services (I refer to the attached photo displaying the EMS badge which has been deliberately used to promote his honesty). I know I would want to know if it was being done to me. So if you recognise him, can you please advise me or ask him to contact me directly at or phone on 00 44 1566 770 751. If you or the gentleman in the photo would like to call me, I am happy to call you straight back and I will give him all the details on this matter. Stay Safe Annie

thanks for the input, yes the call really happened and when the Captain who ran the call told me the story, he cried, no one wants to get there guys hurt and he felt responsible, as mentioned, you don't use the ERG for something that behaves like a fixed facility incident. Yup, it was a semi-truck trailer, but it was a confined space with a material that was water reactive. Take care, Mike

Ben called me on his way north from Macon co. I have talked to him a few times since then. I have been busy though because my wife and I just had a baby girl on the 8th.

I am working as an electrician as I always have but I have been looking into going paid. I am planning on keeping up my electrical after I get on a paid dept. I won't really be able to make as much as I currently do if I was to only fight fire but I I have always loved it

I used to drive "Tweety Bird" when Ben first started to work with you so it's been about 3 1/2 years. I don't think you ever knew my real name but I worked under Chief Price

Does that system displace the oxygen? Is is safe to activate if someone is in side that we cant get to. I know by then I have to make a command decission. Which will be to deploy the fit if i can get to the person with a hard line.
