Yours Truly

Well, I've been in the business for 32 years and still learn something new every time I roll on a call.

I'm a KATRINA victim/survivor/responder, and am slowly rebuilding my life and my home, as well as dealing with the psychobabble shit that came with it... nightmares, short temperedness, a propensity to get the shakes in a bad thunderstorm... I'm rold it's PTSD.

I have a warped sense of humor, and can trade put downs and one liners with the best of them. And will enjoy an… Continue

Firehouse Expo 2007

OK, so we didn't blog in Balto. To be quite honest, we had no time. We stayed pretty busy with everyone stopping by the booth all three days. It was great seeing all of our old friends again and making many (MANY) new one's. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say Hi!

Special thanks to WebChief for stopping by, as well as our buds from 911Webs who sponsored a kick-ass party at the Baja Beach Club. Some of the boys are still recovering (mentally,…

Why A Firefighter ? This is Why !!!!

Why a firefighter? Isn't it dangerous? How do you deal with the stress?

Well I'm here to tell you that yes, it is in fact very dangerous. And at times it can be very stressful. However, I don't do it for the stereotypical image of pulling little Sally out of a burning building. But don't get me wrong, I would have her unfortunate ass out of that building faster than you could say I think my house is on fire.

Then why do you do…

The First Fire (short story I wrote in 1994)


The burning rooms. The hot, smoky air. Just me and the company battling a raging inferno. I was barely twenty-two. My first real fire. I remember it well.

We were sleeping when the fire alarm sounded. We jumped out of bed, slid down the pole, and grabbed our gear as we headed for the fire trucks. As I suited up, I couldn’t help but feel excited, yet a…

Each and everyone of you, along with Law Enforcement puts your lives on the line each time you suit up and roll down our highways and byways. I did for a while have some experience with working with some firemen and paramedics when I was towing for CPD, MCSO and DPS.

Welcome back to this, our third Predator Free Safety Tip.

For starters I could make a bet that with a pretty good guess I'd win. It's still a fact that our children still know more about the internet then most of their parents. That is where I start safety tip 3. Parents, to make a difference in your childs life or that of others, you have to become more educated about the internet than your child.

The statistics are growing daily last count was there are over 30 million… Continue

Child Predator Busters Mission and Vision

Child Predator Busters is a newly formed Organization that has a vision to make a difference in the amount of Child Predator's that are out there preying on our children daily. It is mind boggling that for every twenty four hours of on line time that there are over 500,000 Predators preying on our innocent, defenseless, and trusting children. My three children were preyed on and molested in real life, outside of a computer. I am currently working on a book to bring into prospective, just how… Continue

Mountains To Die On

"Life is full of opportunities for us to take on battles. There are times when it is important for us to go to battle; Take a stance for causes that we believe in; stand up for what is right. Those times are mountains worth dying on. There are other mountains that are not worth the battle. Some disagreements and conflicts simply are not worth the fight. Maybe the issue is not that significant, not an issue of moral charictor or integrity. Maybe the risks of battle far out weigh the rewards…
