Welcome to the Nation and I hope you get as much out of the interaction here as I have had. It's a great resource. While you are online, I'd also suggest checking out my blog, Firehouse Zen, over on the FireEMSBlogs network.
FHZ is a little different than the rest, as our discussion is supposed to remain civil and cerebral. As we say, "It's brain food for Mongo". So come on by and check it out and if you are on Facebook, you can "like" our page over there as well. Stay safe-
bryan welcome aboard ,,,, the sites fun and many of the discussions are interesting ,,,, it's nice seeing how other departments and countries perform the same operations ,,,, but i love looking at all the different style apparatus used all over the world ,,,, word to the wise if you trade patches be careful, there are a few people looking to just get and not reciprocate ,,,, now, i will not mail anything till i have something in hand, but you do what you want ,,,, my goal is not to get a patch i do not collect them but rather warn you and watch your back as we all do for each other, it's what the brotherhood is all about ,,,, if you wanna add me as a friend, great, if not that too is OK, my message is intended to simply welcome you to the site ,,,,
Bryan, Welcome to the Firefighter Nation. I am glad you joined the group.There is lots to do, read and be involved with. Your participation and involvement is important to us all. Have fun and look around.
