    I had planned on attending but I've been invited to FDIC so my funds are going towards that trip. I hope to one day attend both of those events every year but I have too much going on...

      Just wanted to add my .02 that Aaron's class is top-notch. I'm not exactly the biggest FF out there, and what he's shown me is invaluable. I can't believe I spent so many years in the fire service before ever seeing or hearing about the Tanaka (sp?) grip... "welcome to the rebirth of the basics".

        I have to agree. I really wish I could fit AFTD into my schedule but with FSW, FDIC, and smoke jumpers.... I'll have to wait. I'm very disappointed it couldn't have worked out better.... his information is top notch.


        Good to see that the "young guys" still have something to provide.

          Hose control techniques

          Try the Bowring Tool at www.thebowring.com . It is an incredible fire/rescue tool that fits easily in your bunker pants pocket. It fits 6 different hose sizes, it's an emergency bailout descender, a RIT firefighter drag device, a cheater bar, standpipe wheel, spanner wrench for 1" up to 2-1/2" rocker lug and up to 5" storz, a gas shut off tool, a windshield remover/glass ripper, a mattress hook, a sheet rock ripper, an oxygen bottle wrench, a pin lug spanner, a water shut off tool and a door wedge. It solves a major problem of the Nance drill in that it easily attaches the unconscious firefighter to the hose for removal from the basement.

          I got mine in the mail yesterday and have removed most of the other tools from my bunkers.

          Check out the training videos.....it sells itself.

            Fix your link.

            (and the traffic on your side of the MRB)

              Fix link/traffic

              The link is fixed. It should have been www.thebowring.com and the traffic on my side of the MRB is not a problem. Everyone knows the Westside is the good side of the bridge.

                True. I'm glad I take the first exit off that bridge when going eastbound....

                Stay safe out there, hope you're enjoying this lovely hot (and wet) winter we're having.

                  Cold weather

                  I moved down here many years ago to get out of fighting fires in the ice and snow. I'll take hot weather any day. Try fighting fires in below zero weather with 30+ mph winds.
