  • Paris Attacks

    Thinking of our pompier brothers during the recent attacks on 11/13.
    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.

    Thinking of our brothers here as the California attacks proved it can happen here.
    Train to fight the fires you fight.

      Thanks. San Bernardino is about an hour+ away from me. As the investigation continues I think we are finding out they didn't perpetrate this act without outside help.

        The International community do something to stop the terror. I think it is time to take harsh steps against terror.

          Thank you for the thoughts, even 3 years later.

          That night I did respond, not as a firefighter but as an EMT (working with the Civil Protection) and although we faced complete chaos, the combined work of our services (FD, EMS, Police, Army...) allowed to quickly master the situation and efficiently treat the casualties.

          After those events a big change was initiated in our doctrine. Until then, there was a golden rule that rescue operations could start only when the law enforcement had dealt with the threat. FD and EMS had to wait for a PD raid before they could get in.

          Now the line has been blurred and most FD's have started to train "extraction teams" : A small number of firefighter or EMT, equipped with bulletproof vests and helmets, are able to get in the scene, protected by 2 or 3 shielded police officers, and pick up the casualties one by one. These missions are commanded by the PD chief officer until the threat is neutralized, then the FD chief officer gets in charge.

          The idea of getting military-level equipment for our FDs and EMSs was tottally unthinkable a few years back...
