Hey haven't heard from ya in a while hope all is going well. being asst. cheif hasen't been to bad seems like your always on the raido doing updates. have you been hunting at all our freezer is full of 3 deer right now . made about 25# of sausage the other day. keep me posted take care Hooter
Hey, sorry I haven't gotten back to ya been to lazy to write I know I told ya I like your music before I'm sitting here with a smile on my face listening to redneck yacht club makes me think about being on our boat fishing and having a good ol time. Been working at a boat house on LK. Placid so the ride home always takes a while while I troll down the lake. We've been pretty slow with calls maybe one a week or so.Still getting use to my new position getting asked questions and directing omg help but I do like it . At meetings I've gotten lots of things passed like hose testing which was a battle for years even though it is required. Sounds like your making lots of effort in becoming a firefighter I can really appreciate that. Hope all is going well with ya have a great August
Hey hows it going got moved to 1st asst chief two weeks ago some how skipped right by 2nd asst.It's gonna take a little while to get use to it. Had one fire as asst. chief so far it went well not really use to directing things it's a whole new aspect of firefighting that with time and support I think I'll be good at it. You must almost be done with school now My son graduates this year you must almost be there too then what. Was checkin out your photos do you fish a lot We have a pretty nice fishing boat that we spend a lot of time on trolling for lakers just waiting for a monster to hook on. keep in touch and have a good summer
Holy Chit! 1500 calls sure is a lot Last year we had about 65 but we are only fire. we cover a large area about 900 sq. miles. where I live is pretty much like the white mountains. lots of wilderness lakes and small communities Seems as though 1500 calls is a full time job. do you have paid firefighters?
Wats up! things here have been fairly quiet. Just took a pump operator course learned alot about pumping trucks and the theory behind it. Had our firefighters banquet last week was a good time getting together with everyone. I recived an award for second most calls for 2008. Still not 2nd asst. chief but its gona end up happening. take care
hey Amanda we had an officers meeting the other night being the vocal person I am I gave my shpeel to the chiefs that were stepping down I thought I had them convinced that they were to important to reisign from their positions I thought I had skated around the issue butttttt We were toned out at 0320 today for a structure fire on a near by lake we were working one cornner of the building so we got to talking and both chiefs are so pissed off that they will resign if the other person involved dosen't. It looks like I might end up as 2nd asst I hate loosing two great officers over this OH well keep me posted later
It seems as though you are on the right track to becomming a full member. What is the age in N.H.to join in N.Y. it is 18. Things in our dept have been in termoil a case of gas credit card fraud with a senior member. Our chief and 1st asst. chief resigned over it because they could not resolve it. So I think I'm gonna move up to 2nd. asst. chief. I'm not sure i"m really ready for the job yet but i belive in our dept and the good we do so I'll do it if asked by the membership.No major calls lately just a few MVAs. the bad part is I knew the people in them. thats the only thing I don't like is knowing the people, it makes it to personal. Were into brush fire season now none for us yet but in the northern part of our county there are lots of them every day.Later
Hey Amanda great video good work! As a junior firefighter are you on scene for support or can you do whatever needs to be done? Wish our Dept. had a junior program but it is hard enough to just get good members
