    • A Tip of the Leather for our very own Chief Reason for a job well done!
      ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
      Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY

          IACOJ website = http://www.iacoj.com Kinda logical really.

          Chief Reason. Art, that is excellent. Thanks for showing us the other side in a rational manner.

          And it should spark further debate, if it doesn't something is sadly wrong.

                • George, if you just registered you may have to wait until your account has been activated before you can access some areas of the site.
                  To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

                  • Anyone else having problems accessing the website?
                    The best way to take advantage of the many fine features of the site is to apply for membership.
                    Of course, that would include many good articles written by some of the best and brightest of the fire service.
                    Remember; you can only read the interview at www.iacoj.com.;)

                          You just did!
                          Chief: Rule #1 is: if there is a problem or you have a question that is problematic, we keep it internal. If you had questions about your application, you should have contacted the membership, re-applied; something along those lines.
                          You're right on one thing: we don't keep applicants swinging in the lurch. You are entitled to know the status of your app.
                          Let me say this:
                          If your app was in somewhere around the last of October when we were having server problems, it may explain why nothing was done with it. It was lost.
                          My suggestion is that you re-submit. If you have any questions on THAT application, i.e. status, please contact me at [email protected].
