had a little vehicle rescue refresher training today to give the new guys a little practice with the jaws of life.
our trainer was excellent in explaining the different methods and options for cutting a vehicle open.
our local salvage yard happily donates car bodies for training!1534893485377.jpg

early morning fire in Eldred Pa Numerous companies and ems services responded, multiple patients transported to hospitals for smoke inhalation. traffic was routed to alternate routes due to main street being closed off completely.
no serious injuries but it was a long battle (over 4 hours) for the crews who responded!
Hats off to the guys and gals of Eldred, Port Allegany, Coudersport, Olean, Roulette. Knapps Creek, Smethport, Otto, and PortvilleContinue
Being former military I have a deeply ingrained sense of duty and commitment so I hope this doesn't drive people away, I have seen discord in different departments and jobs caused by drama llamas and the Im special attitudes! (and if anything sours my temper it's that type of Bull crap)
As far as being in a fire department you take an oath to serve and protect your department and its members, and contention in the ranks has no place there
we are better than that
