      My mentor in the fire service was Lt. "Duke" Dyer, God rest his soul.
      I had a few others I looked to as mentors as well from Dalton, then Capt. Stan Maney he is now a Batt. Chief, Lt. Chris Cox, Lt. Trent Hicks, and Batt. Chief Donnie Dunn (retired).

      I haven't really felt out my new department yet, I usually go to Capt. Henry, Capt. Robello, or FF Kevin Fuller with questions and for advice.

        Mentors

        Start on the pages of Firehouse and other fire service magazines - the writings of those individuals can often be found there. If you don't subscribe, check the fire station - you may well find copies in the "reading room" and elsewhere.

        Billy Goldfeder runs "firefighterclosecalls.com", which has a mailing list - "the Secret List" which is well worth signing up for. He's also a great speaker, if you have the chance to hear him.

            Capt. Hank Stanley. He was always so calm when ordering Firefighter Chet Kelly to "Get an inch and a half on that."

                Tom Brennan. Had more war stories than Carter has pills. But he never told a war story that didn't have a lesson or a purpose attached to it.

                I also rely on guidance from a friend who was an active Lieutenant in the Philadelphia Fire Department, and had almost 20 years on the job when he was severely burned and injured in the line of duty in 1983. Although he was able to make somewhat of a recovery, he failed his USAF Reserve Physicals, and as a result the PFD gave him an early out by way of a permanent IOD.

                And lastly, a gentleman who retired as a Bn Chief from the City of Camden, NJ whom I first got to know when he was a Captain at 3 Truck. I was a house buff of Engine 9 and 3 Truck, and I used to ride with him. He was also one of my instructors at the Burlington County (NJ) Fire Academy when I took FFII. I continued to ride with him when he made Bn Chief. To this day, my wife, the kids and I enjoy he and his wife's hospitality at their home in the Outer Banks of North Carolina at least one if not two weeks per year (where he resides permanently.) The guidance and knowledge of Truck Company operations that he has shared with me have helped to mold me into the knuckledragger that I am today.

                        Yes, I laugh at some of the names that were mentioned earlier.

                        Men like TB that had 30k alarms to their name............. YES, those are the guys that walked the walk and talked the talk and I'll listen to them.
