    Is it really worth the cost of guys traveling out there, etc?

    Seems like there should be a cheaper and better way to give that training.
    ... But then we wouldn't get to spend 3 nights in Vegas on the federal dime!

    Somtimes you can be so logical Chief.

    I blame George Washington. If he sold the wood from that cherry tree, and put the money into a compound-interest bearing account, the US would be heavily in the black right now.

    Damn him and his wooden teeth!

    Yes they cancelled the classes scheduled for May.

    They are planning on running classes for those cancelled after the budget issue has been taken care of.

    Please tell me they haven't rescheduled you. I may be headed there in the future and I don't personally think I could sit through 4 days of your drivel. I have not heard of any classes out there being cancelled and their website says nothing. Are you sure they just decided to not allow you to attend? I have heard radiation monitoring might be too aggressive for you.

    Just found out today that my Radiological Monitering class in Nevada in a week has been cancelled due to the lack of a federal budget.

    Anyone know if the same issue is affecting the NFA?

    Show me a four-day course that's free at LSU with the exception of the haz-mat classes or the NFS outreach such as PICO or JFS Intervention.

    I have the utmost respect for LSU FETI and most of the staff, but as far as state fire training programs go, it is one of the most expensive. And yes, I understand fully that it is underfunded and that is why.

    Do we need to go through the whole "abandoned vs. vacant" thing and verbally kick your azz again? What about the senerio where the kid comes home sick from school and goes upstairs back to bed, and mom takes the car and goes back to work, leaving the driveway empty......You never did answer my query to that one.

    Idiot. You can't handle a basic interior attack without cowering in the corner in a fetal position and now you want the feds to waste valuable money training you on something that would certainly make you pack your bags and run for the hills............
    Interesting argument except that's not an abandoned structure. It's a possibly occupied and we would operate in it unless it was too heavily involved.

    As I have said many times before we define abandoned as a structure not maintained by owner and likely not occupied. Basically here that is a building falling down.

    I guess I'm the one that has to go over things again, huh?

    As far as your insult, it's once again untrue and par for the course.
