I just finished a class with MFA, hosted by sherborn Fire. The class was Vehicle Extication and delt with reasons and tecniques in cutting up cars during extrication of patients. Sherborn was a great place to take a class. Chief McPherson was a great host. I reccommend this class for a brush up on tools and tecniques.
We've had real good luck with the guys coming over from Natick. They've made our department better. What do you think about this web site? I signed up to check it out but I'm not sure yet if it will be a good place to exchange ideas and learn something or if it will just be a social thing mostly for volunteer departments.
Check out the some of the Groups, I have started up "Close Calls" an area to tell your story of what you did and should not of so others learn. "Roll Calls" this is another group that allows you to tell us about your station and district. "Trainers Corner" is another area that you can read about issues other trainers have or deal with. As well if your not a trainer you can ask questions or state concerns you have. If you have a hard time locating them just go to my site and look at the bottom left hand corner.
