    Most of you who know me know that I write about either a training concept or things that inspire me. This month I’m inspired. It comes right in time for Fire Prevention month. Sorry to scare off some of you with the FP words but keep reading anyway.  On January 19, 2000, an arson fire took the lives of three college freshman and injured 58 others at Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J. I was a Chief in New Jersey at the time and colleagues of mine had been to the fire. It was truly a dreadful scene. For the South Orange Fire Department, a crew of 8 or so pulled up to the dormitory…

Your thinking of the old myth that an Instructor has to be certified from an accredited group such as IFSAC or ProBoard. But that myth is wrong and here is why. I myself, your blogger for the time being, is a Certified Fire Instructor from both Massachusetts and New Hampshire and I have the "Certs" to prove it but, does any of this make me a good or a better Instructor than anyone else?

My parents were in Florida for a family wedding, and my Grandma, being Great-Grandma’s daughter, was in the hospital. I felt like Great-Grandma needed some extra love that first weekend in a new place away from everyone else, so off we went. We stopped at The Farm first to drop off the dogs and check on all the homes. I fed the boys a…
