Running in when everyone else is running out thinking were crazy.

Hazardous Materials Technician

Posted on March 4, 2009 at 6:56pm 3 Comments

Wow, for the past 2 weeks I attended an 80 hour Texas State Certification course for Hazardous Materials Technician, and then took the state exam. It is known to be the 2nd hardest and most technical of all of the state tests. Good news, the entire class passed the state exam, so I am not only a HazMat Tech out of California through CSTI, I just landed my state of Texas Hazardous Materials Technician certification. Sweeeeet. Now I am able to get the IFSAC seal for HMT since Cali doesn't have… Continue

What a RUSH! high angle rescue

Posted on August 25, 2008 at 8:30pm 2 Comments

I was on shift last night while we were watching the "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" when all of the sudden we got toned out to a rescue situation at our new amusement park.

I was like doh... partial bunkered out and jumped into the engine to start rolling to the scene.

We arrived on the scene to find a set of coaster cars between 70 and 80 feet up on the tracks that had frozen in place. We called for mutual aid getting the ladder rolling and my Lt. tasked me with getting to the top of… Continue

Pictures Being Uploaded causing Negative Public Perception

Posted on August 8, 2008 at 7:30pm 20 Comments

I don't want to sound like I am preaching here, but what is with all of the pics being uploaded that show alcohol being consumed. I think that we need to set a higher standard as Firefighters than just partying. What kind of example do you think this is setting for anyone that views the public page. I am sorry but too much is just that.... too much. I don't see what it does besides makes you look like you drink alcohol a whole lot. I believe that we should think about what we are going to put… Continue

The City of El Paso Fire Department lost a 7 year veteran in a battle with brain cancer. Kip Hall was the epitome of what a firefighter could be. God Bless you Kip and you wont be soon forgotten

Remembering 9-11.... Never Forgetting

Posted on September 9, 2007 at 10:42pm 0 Comments

Today one of our local churches treated us to a worship service in which they prayed a blessing upon us and all the other firefighters, families, and those who have had someone give their sacrifice so others may live. They called it Heroes Day. They gave us a cookout afterwards. It was a time to reflect and just hand out with our feloow brothers from one of the neighboring departments. It was done in Remembrance of 9-11. May we NEVER FORGET!

FRIENDS:

1. When you are sad -- I will give you a shoulder to cry on and my ears to listen until you feel better.

2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3. When you smile -- I will know you are thinking of something that I would probably want to be involved in.

4. When you are scared -- I will rag you about it every chance I get until you're Not.

5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much Worse it could be until you quit whining.

6. When you are confused -- I will try to use only little words.

7. When you are sick -- Stay the hell away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.

8. When you fall -- I will laugh at your clumsy ass but I'll help you up.

9. This is my oath; I pledge it to the end.

Why? - Because you are my friend!

Hey Dennis. Sorry to hear bout your dad. that's rough. My 9 year old brother is actually battling the big C too. He was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma bout 2 months ago. Totally tore me apart. And then one of my younger cousins just got admitted into surgery for Uterine Cancer. So believe me, I know how tough it can be.

Never knew there was a museum out there....might have to check it out
