    I've always liked this thread, so it's time to bring it back for another round of tips.

        I am sorry, but I have tried unsuccessfully. Maybe someone else (with more PC skills) could manage to do it for you. :-(

          • I am NOT trying to be sarcastic for sure, but I will ask my granddaughter (a Junior in H.S.) if this is possible, and if I am able I will surely attempt to post a result.

                  I teach that anytime the saw makes contact with the roof decking the saw is at full throttle. Insert the blade at a 45 degree angle and then immediately take the saw vertical. A sharp chain is also a must...

                  • -Might sound silly but I keep a Propel electrolyte packet and a GU energy gel in the right trouser pocket of my bunkers. I use the electrolyte the first time we come out for rehab to replace aome
                    of what I’ve sweated out. If it looks like we will be there for a while, I’ll suck down that energy gel. We don’t keep anything but water on our trucks so having some electrolytes and some sugar/carbs makes me feel much better for much longer on scene.
