Sorry that I have missed some messages lately. I have sold my house and had a great deal of work to finish not counting that I still have to work all the time but things seem to be on the up and up. The next test for the FD is coming up so time to get started. I am going to kick the CPAT butt this time. Hope everyone has been good, stay safe, and have a wonderful day.

Just getting ready to go to Dallas for the Texas state EMS conference. I am a honor guard member so we do the opening and some other stuff. If you are going to be safe on the road trip and everyone else keep your heads up so we do not have to add to the wall of honor for state EMS deaths anymore. Last year there were no names to add lets try that again. stay safe

It is that time of year again to pay respect to those who have served, will serve, or do serve. I am sending a shout out to my friends in the 501st and 4th ID till serving. To all my brothers and sisters in the US military who took the oath to serve and protect the USA from all emenies.

So know that America is watching and we knowt hat there are many things… Continue

Hey guys I hope that everyone is safe out there. Man the weather is just hitting Texas and the coast. For those who do not know Lubbock let me tell you it is a flat as the eye can see. If there was a something 30 miles away approaching you could pick it off at a mile. To add to the fun we got 10.5 inches on rain in 16 hrs so we were learning flash flood response quickly. We got some evacs from the hurricane and I really think they would have stayed were they were if they knew about out rain. So… Continue

I did not have time yesterday with all the calls and rain that seemed to come our way all day long but I wanted to post this in memory of a lost friend in the pentagon attack. I look around sometimes and forget how truly blessed I am. I want to take the time and tell everyone that had been there for me, stood beside me when the light at the end of the tunnel seemed very dim, cheered me on or just cheered me up. Thanks for being firefighters, paramedics, medics, nurses, and anyone who chooses a… Continue

I would like to take the time to thank all of those who choose to serve their families, communities, city, state, and country. There is no greater calling than being a fisher of man. Be careful this weekend and enjoy the day.
