    Won't Open ... Sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry.

    And if attending FDIC, consider sitting in for my class. I personally guarantee you that it will be the best class in that particular classroom during that particular time slot. (Thursday @ 10:30)

    And yes, it is my first national magazine article ... So I'm pretty pumped.

    Much like today’s structure fires, fires involving large highway vehicles, including 18-wheelers,
    buses, and recreational vehicles, have undergone a radical change in the past several years. New
    solid fuels in greater quantities have led to faster burning, hotter, and more dangerous fires that
    can easily challenge a department’s response capabilities. In addition, these fires present
    personnel, operational, and logistical challenges that were not an issue in the past. Students will
    see how changes in construction, materials, size, cargos have affected fire behavior and will be
    given the tools to retrain their members on these new problems. Students also gain insight into
    new tactical approaches needed for this new generation of fires, including the use of large-flow
    handlines and the personnel, water supply, command, and safety requirements needed to support
    the increasing intensity this generation of new large vehicle fires generates. ALL LEVELS

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

      That's the class description.

      The link that I posted was for the article that appeared this month in the digital issue of Fire Engineering, which was a requirement for teaching a class. I thought that it was public access but apparently that's not the case.

          Thanks. It's been a pretty cool ride so far.

          So far they have been very cooperative with no major issues. The deadlines have been reasonable and they have been very open to answering questions, which has been important since this is the first time that I have taught at FDIC or written an article for a major publication.

            For anyone interested.............

            If you can't get access and are curious about the article, I have been able to download it.

            E-mail me at bcallahan@bpfd1.org if you would like me to e-mail it to you.

              Maybe its just for me, but I posted that because the link didn't work.

                Ya, I know.

                There is even an option within the digital version where you can send a particular article to someone by e-mail and even they can't seemingly open it. Seems like their technology needs an upgrade of some type.

                    Nope, no commission.

                    Most of the "smaller" rooms are arranged to sit over a hundred. If I fill it up halfway I'll be happy given that I'm competing with some big names from some big departments..

                      Congratulations Bobby!

                      I am hoping to make it this year to FDIC. If I do perhaps I will partake of your class.
                      Crazy, but that's how it goes
                      Millions of people living as foes
                      Maybe it's not too late
