What's up man. It was good to see you at graduation. Went under the knife again last week. MRSA in my knee. That was a blast. Hopefully I can back on light duty next week. Like the picture at the bar. Very nice. Hey, do you have Jim Seymour's email address? Talk to you later.

Okay all you FOOL-ish folks, here's the announcement! Spread the word!

To coincide with our annual Spring Training, here is the annual Brotherhood Bash. Stories and legends unto themselves!

They've put together a FOOLS menu for us to appease you flat-landers too.

The drinks will flow, the Brotherhood will abound, and NO ONE will leave unhappy!

This will be another one for the ages, so bring your wife, bring your girlfriend, bring your wife's girlfriend or both!

So you think you learned everything you need to know at the Fire Academy? You think that Firefighter 1&2 taught you everything there is out there? Attack School veterans are you?

Well, there is more to firefighting in the real world than stickers, tattoos and t-shirts. Join the New England FOOLS and some of the fire service’s top instructors for a weekend of how-to’s and tricks of the trade. Skill stations and live fire training scenarios in real-time make this a weekend not to be missed, don’t be a statistic; don’t have you or your Department show up on the internet! Don’t make anyone ask, “Where have all the firemen gone…”

• Vent/Enter/Search, what every big city and small town “truckie” should know.
• Forcible Entry and Power Saws, choose right to get in the first time.
• Engine Company Operations, it’s not just pulling your hose.
• Firefighter Self-Survival Skills, because there is more to it than just a t-shirt.

Hey Man...
So I had my first firefighting related injury last month. We were cutting a girl out of a car and I somehow cut my hand (through my gloves) which partially ruptured the extensor tendon on my left index finger. Well, I'm now almost two weeks past surgery to repair it and I should be back to work by the 21st of the month. This blows...I missed my Academy date but will start on March 31st now.

Hope all is well with the family and that your holidays went well. Stay safe.
