However, his wants and desires did not necessarily meet with those of the Town of North Providence.It was only after a meeting with…See More

"You Don't Know What You Don't Know!?

Many of us are pretty damn excited when the dreams of little kids to be firefighters comes to fruition in our usually, young adult lives. We are usually in our late teens or early twenties. We may have had some experience by “buffing” until we were old enough to ride the apparatus. We’ve watched the experienced members do…See More

New Podcast - "The Shift Commander: Before, During & After the Fire"

    While shiny new pumpers, ladders and rescues grab most of the headlines, the Shift Commander's Buggy, looks almost like another SUV. However, the person driving this vehicle has paid his/her "dues" and has been promoted to the position of Shift Commander.    This interview with Deputy Chief (ret) Kevin Burns of the City of Framingham MA, is special to me, because I grew up in Framingham. And it was my exposure to the wonderful firefighters in my community as a child that planted the seed of…See More

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
I've always loved the fire service. I grew up in the Boston area and visited many stations around the city and in the city. But there were no volunteer departments in the area. Thus, I devoted myself to the Red Cross. When I moved to NC it just so happened that there was a combination department just a half mile down the street, but I didn't know that. I walked in one day when the bay doors were open, just to look at the apparatus. An hour later, I walked out with an application and a polite request that I shave off my beard!
Why I Love Fire/EMS
It's who we are and it's what we do.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
The two major issues today both deal with firefighter health. First, we have the Firefighter Fight Cancer initiative. With all the toxins and carcinogens that we face daily, it is taking far too high a toll on our personnel. The second issue is firefighter fitness. And this initiative must be applied across the board, from the probie to the chief and to every career, volunteer or paid-on-call firefighter. We are losing far too many firefighters, YOUNG firefighters, to preventable health issues. We MUST break this cycle!

This Day of All Days

Posted on May 28, 2018 at 12:20pm 0 Comments

     Today is Memorial Day here in the U.S. In my family and our community, it was always a special day. The last day of school before Memorial Day was made very poignant, even for those of is in elementary school. We learned a little about World War II and about the soldiers who fought there...and those who died there. There would be a patriotic play that we'd put on and often, a speaker would come to our assembly. Each student went home that day with a small…
