Thanks to my non-firefighter work schedule, I am getting close to making a tough decision on whether I should focus more on getting my paramedic training done first over my fire science degree. The fire science degree is 2 nights/week in another city that's almost an hour away. The pre-reqs I am finishing for my dream paramedic school is 2 hours away 1 day/week for 2 months.

Happy 2013! This is the time of the year where we all scramble to make up for lost workouts and pledge to get in shape.

Today I've created some "challenge" workouts that you can use to assess your fitness progress and to get a good efficient workout. There are…Continue

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). Response times increased somewhat, especially in neighborhoods which are home to those…Continue

It was a cold winter day in Wisconsin, and the coming winter weather was enough to make even the saltiest veterans of our area’s fire service consider the special calls and challenges that winter brings. Slippery roads bring car accidents on the Interstate, cold weather creates more risk for structure fires, chimney fires, firefighter rehab and cold weather safety concerns and the holidays create dynamic EMS calls, with more emotional families, and a variety of other challenges for our…Continue
