Hi, I wasn`t able to send you a message this is why I am posting here. My Name is Detlef Maushake from Germany and I saw your pictures and report about Building your own training tower on the nation.
Can you get me the contact to that FD as I might be looking into building such a tower at my FD too (for Info on construction, drawings, materials etc.) This is such a great idea! Thanks alot.

Hello Bob, Good to see some "not so young" firefighters. I can say that with a good conscious as I'm 66 and you are over 21. I went to check out your Fire Department like and it is not in operation. Just thought you'd like to know. In trying to remember where Newman Lake is, I kinda think you are not too far from where you grew up. Am I right? Does your department run a bush truck? Fire Buff

You also look familiar. I rode with AMR during my medic internship this past yr with AMR 124 West Plains. Did get to run few in town and around. Were you at the Ice Rescue training yrs ago with the dive team and your guys or maybe just on a call on the lake. Anyway take care I am off this weekend to Calif to fight fires there.Say hi to Tracey for me.

Hey Bob, welcome to FFN and the Washington State Fire and EMS site. I am 100% sure we have met along the way, either through your ag chem career or at Newman Lake. I'll add you as a friend then shoot you an e-mail.
