About Me:
Well my name is Jessi Travis and i am a junior firefighter with bfpd. my nickname is care bear (JFF's had a camping trip and one of the advisers gave me that because my hair frizzed at 4 a.m.) Im 16 years old and hope to become a first responder in january. I would also like to become an EMT while in high school (when im 18, senior yr). I love being in junior firefighters, the people there are amazing, honestly they are my best friends. These people are the best, we might argue a little but if i needed them they would back me up. I guess its like having 4 more dads 2 more moms, 11 brothers and 6 sisters, you become family. I wouldn't trade them for the world. I recently joined an EMS explorer post in our area, it seems like an awesome program we just need to get more people interested in it, (we have 4 counting me)

i hate funerals...

Posted on March 4, 2010 at 11:39pm 3 Comments

i know that no one really likes funerals but today i went to a really emotional one... A junior firefighter lost her daddy tuesday morning to a massive heart attack and we as the junior firefighters went to the funeralvisitation to support her... I think it was the hardest thing i have ever had to do, even harder than the funeral for family members i have been to recently..

The man was a decorated war veteran and immediately when you walk in you see the honor guard men walking around…

I CHECKED INTO NIMS AND THERE IS NO AGE RESTRICTIONS ON IT THAT I CAN FIND. MY JOUNIORS MEMBERS HAVE TAKEN AND PASSED THERES WITH NO PROBLEMS. I CANT IMAGINE ANY DEPARTMENT TELLING YOU THAT YOU COULDNT TAKE THE TRAINING, BUT I DO NOT KNOW YOUR DEPARTMENTS BY LAWS OF SOGS EITHER. HOW EVER I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT ALL TRAINING OFFICERS ARE LIKE ME AND JUMP AT THE CHANCE TO TRAIN EVEN IF IT IS WITH ONLY ONE OR TWO MEMBERS. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BE ABLE TOO GET SOME TRAINING HOURS IN SOON. I THERE IS ANYTHING YOU NEED HELP WITH YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME. GOOD LUCK AND TRAIN HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

nims is an incident command system training program that fema has put in place in my state and i thought nationwide all emergency responders had to pass 100, 200, 700, & 800. line officers and board members 300 and chiefs 300& 400

Oh yeah. Glad its going back to normal. There are still some areas has flood waters mostly near our flood way area. But for me glad it had receded two weeks ago because engineering analysis says we will have to spent a wet christmas but we didn't. Well glad we are going to spend a normal Christmas here in my place. Have you seen my profile photos and my last blog? Thanks

Hey Jessica, The answer to your question is, if you think about it, they took out the guy before you probably because he was already down before you were. You had just gone down to where that guy was probably really low on air or was out of air, injury to him etc.., he was there longer than you were.

Now what I would of done, is called for the back up RIT team to come in and get you.
If a RIT team has to be deployed in my department, we will assign two more guys to take their place outside in the ready mode. This is for a secondary emergency if needed. So all in all we have to have four guys for the RIT team. Not an easy position to fill when your short handed sometimes.

If you don't have enough for the RIT secondary team , from the start, that's where the mutual- aid comes in to fill that role. Hope this answer your question?

Well it was an answered prayers. We have two storms passed by and we are spared so far. The last one just a little too close for confort. The guys up north are fine just got wind out of it. LOL. Thanks for the prayers Jessica.

Hopefully you don't need them to do a rescue. They been needed around the country on several different cases. The sad thing is they don't always get to their brother and they have to back out, and you know what happens after that. I have a video of an actual rescue here in SC, that the team saved their brother, now he was burnt bad, but he's living today because the RIT team did their job.
At 1:38am on October 25, 2009, Rusty Mancini said…
This is a must for every fire department to have while operations are going on inside. In my state it's a mandatory law. SC calls it the two in, two out rule.If you have two inside fighting fire, then there must be two outside, in case the inside crew gets in trouble. Now sometimes a department can be short handed on the start of the call. that's when you call for mutual aid to come and help be the RIT team. Not all departments do it, but they should!
