    Hey fellas.

    Hope you all have been well. Here's something fire related for us!

    Got a good stop on Monday morning. Tones dropped as I was literally getting ready to take my first sip of coffee. Hauled azz to the hall and rolled the engine by myself. Arrived on scene to find flames blowing out the kitchen window of a cracker box style house. A cop beat me there and he was kind enough to flake the crosslay for me while I donned my gear. Charged the line, throttled up my pump, did my 360 and started the transitional attack (remember I'm still by myself, haters!) waiting for more help to arrive. I had knocked most of the flames down when my Chief and several others showed up. Chief and I went in and finished the job.

    I am still a big fan of interior ops but the difference in temperature between strict interior and transitional is pretty amazing.

    And are any of you on volunteer departments that have good man power during the day? We really struggle to get a decent number before 1600 or so.

          Ah, yes; now I remember why I stopped coming here. Come to think of it, his BS seems to coincide with a decrease in the activity of a lot of members on this forum.

          Remember the ol' chestnut about how he wouldn't lift a finger to help kids trapped in a burning car because he was off duty and couldn't be bothered to take the slightest risk for his fellow man? Classic!

            Still here Nozzleman ... I like how you keep bringing up the past, but hey, that's cool. Your continued misrepresentation of what I actually said is, well .... you said it best .... classic.

            Have a great weekend.
            Train to fight the fires you fight.

              Not anymore, I blocked him so I won't see anymore of his pot stirring nothingness. So he can rock on all he wants.

                Then please cite what you did say. I remember it the same as Nozz.
                They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

                I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

                  FF-Andy............I will say congratulations and good save. All of us where I am at are facing the same problems with manpower you are. Good to see you use sound tactics to safely achieve a good result.

                    I second HuntPA's congratulations, FF-Andy! Way to take the bull by the horns and do what you've trained for. Our volly dept is in the same situation with limited manpower from 0830-1530 and have AMAs with two depts for structure fires. While we can still roll an engine with 2-3 interiors FFs, the response time could be better.

                    Just wondering, does your dept use any web-based system like I Am Responding that allows firefighters to call when they are en route to the station? Something like this sounds useful in letting an operator know if there is more crew responding.

                      Thank you Brothers HuntPA & Skojo! Unfortunately we are still on the antiquated technology of blowing each other's cell phones up on the way to the scene.

                        If they're like my department, everyone loves getting the calls via text, but no one wants to take the seconds necessary to actually call in a status...

                        I've heard of departments enforcing the use of IaR and other such systems by taking their response report (ie, who responded) from that.

                        FF-Andy - nice job. There are many days here that I could easily see myself in exactly the same situation...

                        Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                        Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                          You asked for it, he delivered...then, you took your ball and went home.

                          Awesome! Are we in a time warp here, or what?

                            Sounds like my dept, too, Tree. While we have IaR, have set up IaR accounts for everyone, and encourage them to use it, we don't enforce it's use. I have to chuckle though when some members complain that the engine left without them and they were "just seconds down the road". We do use IaR pretty frequently to remind members of training, dept meetings, community events, and simply messaging everyone. I'd love to hear what depts have done to successfully encourage their members to use it when responding to a call.

                              Nope, just tired of his boring, same old, same old, shtick. He just keeps saying the same thing over and over, dragging up crap that other people have moved on from, and he freely admits that he is here for nothing more than to agitate and stir the pot.

                              You've been gone for months and your addition to the forum is to pile on to his nonsense. Let me ask you a question, you like to beat on Bobby just like SCNONFire does...Have either of you super hero saviors of the fire service been asked to present at FDIC even once? Let alone the 3 times Bobby has? No? Then maybe you both should find something better to do than drag up old crap about him.

                              I'm tired of this idiotic schitt. I played my part back then, but I'm out of it now. I met Bobby and he is an alright guy, will we always agree? Nope, I don't believe I always agree with too many people. This site is dying because we can't ever discuss anything without someone dragging up that crap, even when it is absolutely unrelated to the original topic. Congratulations once again....

                                Meaning what exactly? That he can give a good presentation? Big deal!! I have spoken in front of crowds numerous times. I gave classes on tactics and strategy numerous times during my career. I actually did the job. LAFE (by his own admission) looked for ways to avoid doing the job. Hardly IACOJ material.

                                Just because he is a great drinking buddy doesn't make him a good fire officer. If that's all it takes, our recruitments should be held in a pub.
