      I think we already met on another post. Good to see you again fireboss. A little about myself. I am the Chief of Devola Vol. Fire co. in Marietta, which is in Washington County where Interstate 77 meets the Ohio River. My dept. has 2 engines, a pumper/tanker, brush truck, 2 EMS units and a boat. Soon to have a new rescue pumper. We only cover about 15 sq. mi. and a population of about 2700 but we have one interstate stretch of about 8 miles and 2 State routes with busy traffic. We also have a low head dam on the Muskingum River.

        Hey, guys. I'm from Dayton, Ohio. I'm not a firefighter, so we'll just say I have connections to the field. I'm not sure I want to tell people who I work for yet for fear of being yelled at!!!!

          I know location says Cincinnati, I'm actually from Norwood, small city within Cincy. Currently at Eastern Kentucky studying fire science. Glad to see a few more southern buckeyes on here.

                I live in South Point, Oh and work for the City of Huntington Fire Dept. so I guess you could say I am from southern Ohio and western West Virginia. Oh yeah I also grew up and lived until my late 20's in Ashland, Ky so add Eastern Ky in there also. LOL
