    That is either real good computer editing, or that is the actual picture that was taken, because it really looks like that face goes with that body

        LOL!

        That's a great look for Greg, makes him look a lot less "husky".

          If you say so. Acting or not, its a pickup............

          .......at least we have suppression capabilities on ours.

            107 w/1 or 205 w/1, whats the difference? They only tool we usually need in Trumbull is a radio.
            Not to get you guys off track, but when you exit the truck after arriving on scene of a fire alarm what do you normally have with you for tools/scba.

            For clarification, You pull up to the address...are you guys packed up? Do you have a set of irons ready? Handlights?

            Ever since joining Vernon I have been a huge advocate of arriving at any call prepared like you would a structure fire. When we get off the truck we are all packed up. Everyone has handlights and 2 guys have a set of irons before the first persons foot touches the asphalt. One FF grabs the water extinguisher and another grabs a closet hook. Obviously depending upon the crew we pull. The least would be 2 guys with irons. I really wish that we would wrap hydrants on all of our fire alarms. People say that we arent a paid fire department. That we dont get paid to pack hose at all of our fire alarms. I call it practice. Im sure it will bite us in the rear one day.

            Anyhow, Im just curious as to your department/company procedures.

            Thanks for you input!

              TVFDT141,

              Our guys are expected to get off the truck will full PPE and SCBA for all alarms except brush fires and extrication/fluid spills. They are also expected to have equipment, irons, can, TIC, etc, depending on crew size.

              There is a handlight for each riding position, so there is no reason why each guy doesn't get off the truck without a light.

              As far as wrapping the hydrant on every call, I disagree with you. I think that it would get old real quick, especially since the majority of alarms are activated alarms, CO calls, etc. What we normally do is stage the second due at the hydrant and they could lay in if needed.

                Relax, I was joking with you.

                    In Long hill our procedures are pretty much the same except when we get a confirmation from a homeowner when we get there thats its BS (like usual) we dont have to go in w/ packs and crap. Just for the record in a commercial building and only a commercial building if we have any sign of smoke or fire we will hook up to the connection and hydrant just to be on the safe side but we dont do it all the time.

                                I think all my brothers in Long Hill should be preparing for their next JOB.

                                With Nichoals and Trumbull Center just having structure fires, I think Long Hill next. Just dont hesitate to invite us to the party.

                                Thanks to eveyones help last night, It was a great knock down and every one did a great job.

                                see ya at the next one.
