    A train blasting water was among the resources that helped firefighters make progress in controlling a brush fire near a rural Arizona community. Arizona State Forestry spokesman Mike Reichling said this was the first time he had seen a train used at the scene of a wildfire. Two Copper Basin Railway cars equipped with water cannons have been blasting hot spots along the Gila River bed near Kearny, about 85 miles southeast of Phoenix.  While helicopters and dozers have been tackling the fire, the train has played a key role. "We work very closely with the firefighters,"…

    Sometimes listening goes further than trying to offer some type of answer.
  • Don't Let "No" Be The End

  • 1964 Meyers Manx

    25 Jul 2015 | 3:45 am
    The Meyers Manx dune buggy is a small recreationally-oriented automobile, designed initially for desert racing by Californian engineer, artist, boat builder and surfer Bruce F. Meyers. It was produced by his Fountain Valley, California company, B. F. Meyers & Co. from 1964 to 1971, in the form of car kits applied to shortened chassis of Volkswagen Beetles. The car line dominated dune racing in its time, breaking records immediately, and was eventually also released in street-oriented models, until the company’s demise due to tax problems after Meyers’s departure.  See more…
  • Drone Danger

    fossilmedic
    20 Jul 2015 | 3:45 am
    Imagine if a hostile country sent an Unmanned Aircraft System or UAS, otherwise known as a drone, to disturb the efforts of firefighters during a catastrophic wildfire. The confusion that might ensue could cause loss of life and property as flames jump fire lines simply because resources have been diverted or grounded to identify and remove the UAS. But these threats aren’t coming from an enemy state. They are being flown by our own citizens and impeding the job of our firefighters.  This isn’t a script for a Hollywood film. It’s really happening. Recently, unauthorized drones…

One is a hardtop, the other a convertible. What makes Rogers a bit different from most enthusiasts, however, is that he does all of the work on his cars himself.

    15 Jul 2015 | 6:57 am
    About 80% of us will complete our firefighting career without the experience of advancing a 2 1/2″ attack line down a dark and hot hallway in a burning structure. Almost all of us will have worked a major natural or man-made disaster. The tasks we perform as a member of a community-based team under an incident management system is a good match for imposing order on chaos. Kathryn Schulz’s article in the July The New Yorker magazine gave me pause. When the next very big earthquake hits, the northwest edge of the continent, from California to Canada and the continental shelf to the…

To most of the brothers and sisters that will take the time to read (and watch) this, this is old news; but to many of our brethren, this is the first they’re hearing of this.         For a small example of a much bigger problem, let’s talk about the halligan.

    What does it take to become the go to guy in the firehouse?  What does it take to step beyond the go to guy and become an "elite" firefighter?  Well, elite firefighters have invested a tremendous amount of time and effort mastering his or her skill set through thousands of hours of training and life experiences. Looking at experience alone, the elite firefighter has often been provided opportunities to succeed from many people who have invested time in said development.  The author Malcomb Gladwell wrote in his book "Outliers" that, "People do not rise from nothing.

I encourage young people to read and study the writings and speeches of Captain Tom Brennan, FDNY, including Brunacini/Brennan Unplugged FDIC 2003 and everything else that you can find.  I did not know Tom Brennan, I wish I had, but I surely liked his style.

    New information regarding both fire behavior and making fire behave (AKA firefighting) is coming out faster than it can be delivered to the end user: firefighters.  This is due to both the tremendous volume of data and interpretations thereof, as well as the limitations on the ability to effectively process, catalog, and communicate - that is, teach - the new concepts and approaches resulting from the research.  Sorting through the reams of findings already published on the subject of fire dynamics requires a significant investment of time and effort, even as more material continues to be…

    “Brotherhood is dead.” I’ve witnessed that same sentence uttered or typed several times in the last few weeks.  It’s out and out poppycock.  Balderdash.  Claptrap.  Malarkey.  If service and selflessness are the foundation of this profession, then brotherhood is the mortar that holds all the other pieces of our house together.  Without brotherhood, we fall apart.  There are those in the fire service that truly do not appreciate that fact, nor do they care about the repercussions of lost brotherhood.  There are also a handful of vocal pessimists who see only the bad seeds that…

    This is probably going to piss a few people off, but that is okay. There are "firefighters" out there who are extremely jealous of other firefighters that go to fire. Crazy as it may seem, these people, instead of learning from the guys that go to jobs, have an innate ability to pick out several items that are “wrong” about a department’s operations based on a single photo during a second time frame of an incident. Typical comments include: “You shouldn’t be on that roof”- Yet they provide no credible reason other than some jargon about LODDs and becoming statistics when in…

Scene: A day of boys arguing followed by a “didn’t I just tell you to keep your bodies to yourself” and a red mark on a cheekbone followed by a taking away of an object. After I took away non-said object and sent one kid to his room, the other kid—the one with the red mark—broke into sobs. “Mommy, you didn’t have to do that. I’m okay. Give it back to him. It feels unfair to him. I’m okay.” I looked at the sobbing brother and raised an eyebrow. This… this was new.

    It’s no secret that I live with anxiety. Currently, things are mostly under check and I feel pretty darn relaxed, calm, and, well, happy. This is not to say I don’t have mild panic attacks on the regular or that I still sometimes get side-swiped by some idle anxiety-car on any random day. But yes, mostly under check. When I do end up with a mild or not-so-mild attack, I practice 4-7-8 breathing. It’s touted as an anxiety and stress reducer/reliever as well as a “fall asleep in seconds” method, though the latter of which does not work for me. The basic premise is…

There’s a lot of laundry, dinner making, and dusting. Four days a week, the word “run” appears, sometimes followed by a question mark. Logistical (take a kid somewhere at some time) and organizational (please put your laundry away, Jenna) things take up a lot of space on these little white pages, blue ink sometimes smeared by writing too quickly or the gloppy pen I love so much.
