    Not the training academy for sure.† Kitchen table, Capt’s office during morning rollcall(we like to watch the videos and share how a different approach could be used) and of course the back parking lot where we also solve our FD’s problems as well as the Nation’s and the World’s(if everyone would just do as we say).† Don’t get me wrong.† The training academy is great.† Learning a block and tackle pre-rig piggy back hauling system was great but when minutes count and 4 companies are there,†change of direction with a safety system and all hands can pull them†up fast.†

I believe individuals with police/weapons training should carry fire arms. In our station's situation, our assistant chief is also a sheriff's deputy. I have suggested that he have his firearm with him in a lockbox on the truck in case a need arises. In addition some personnel are current military (Reserve, National Guard) who could…

We Should Be Hearing All About Mike Behette Today, Rather Than Knowing So Much About the Navy Yard Shooter.
Thank you for this wonderful tribute to my dear friend Mike. I am in the process of writing a biography/anthology of Michael's life. I would be very grateful for your input. Please contact me on FB, Marianna Randazzo or Given Away, A SIiclian Upbringing. Respectfully yours, Marianna

WARNING: This video is graphic and depicts a man being rescued from his burning home.
Yes, Becky, I saw that too. As I was told by an ER doc many moons ago, "a patient without an airway is a dead patient." Not all firefighters are EMT's, and some may not have basic first aid skills- instead relying on a concurrent response from an emergency EMS agency. Not sure in this…
