  • Common Denominators For Wildland Firefighter Fatalities in the United States: 1990-2006

    22 Aug 2015 | 8:28 am
    Wildland Firefighter Fatalities in the United States: 1990-2006Common Denominators for Wildland Firefighter FatalitiesIn the mid-1970s, fire researcher Carl Wilson identified four common denominators of fire behavior that caused fatalities and near-misses on wildland fires. These four common denominators have been cited for decades in fire safety training, in the "Fireline Handbook" (PMS No. 410–1), and in the "Incident Response Pocket Guide" (PMS No. 461).Based on my analysis of 310 fire fatalities during wildland fire operations from 1990 to 2006, I believe that it is time to consider…

    Firerescue1 Tips

  • Keep the hydrant kit low

    26 Aug 2015 | 6:40 pm
    Keeping it low makes the job easier and decreases the potential for injury.
  • Open your gate valves slowly

    19 Aug 2015 | 6:37 pm
    Open the valve partially to allow water to fill the line first, then fully open it to allow the water to pressurize the line.
  • Check your batteries

    12 Aug 2015 | 6:35 pm
    It's better to waste batteries with some life left than what's left of your own life.
  • Never stop learning

    6 Aug 2015 | 6:32 pm
    Many firefighters stop learning once they complete their recruit training — this is a mistake.
  • Listen first, then speak

    Sometimes listening goes further than trying to offer some type of answer.

  • Is Higher Education the way forward?

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:45 am
    A post by Chief Larry Schultz on Training Traditions was thought provoking: These think tanks (of the 1980’s)  began proposing a host of schemes and ideas intended to transform us from a vanishing, outdated government service straight to the top of the Forbes 500 list. Higher education emerged as one of the cornerstones of the future. Transforming ourselves from a blue collar workforce to a white collar establishment was key. Higher education was proposed as the way forward and mastery of skill and experience was staged on side Charlie. So here is my warning: Continuing down the path…
  • Volkswagen Baby Stroller

    15 Aug 2015 | 6:36 am
    In April, Volkswagen Netherlands posted an ad on Facebook featuring VW owners who had great expectations from their personal belongings and who wondered why other items don’t have the same advanced features that a VW car does. One of the most memorable of the VW owners in the ad was a mother who couldn’t understand why baby stroller manufacturers don’t equip their products with an automatic braking system. As a response to the ad, a VW fan addressed the question in a Facebook comment: “Am I crazy, or is a stroller that brakes a really good idea?” Amazingly, this comment sparked VW…

    Steve Neavling reports on a Thursday night fire at 4430 Maxwell – an occupied duplex dwelling. Detroit firefighters scrambled for blocks in search of a working hydrant on the east side Thursday night but couldn’t find one as flames flattened a large, occupied duplex, scorched three neighboring houses and sent large embers onto nearby rooftops. Firefighters made an interior attack soon after arriving at 9:10 p.m. but were forced out five minutes later because of a lack of hydrant water. House fire spreads after every hydrant in Detroit neighborhood fails Neavling reported on the…

    11 Aug 2015 | 3:45 am
    Last month, Engine 56’s crew was driving their rig from the shop after the alternator had been replaced when a loose fan spun off and ripped a hole in the radiator. Mechanics neglected to tighten all of the parts, and Engine 56 was stuck alongside the road for the second time in three days in need of a tow. But it was stranded because the city’s tow truck broke down. Steve Neavling, who is closely following the Detroit Fire Department, posted the first of a series of articles on the firefighting fleet.

    The RIT/RIC dilemma raised its ugly head again last week when my friend Doug Mitchell (25 to Survive) posted a chart of FDNY’s RIT statistics from 1989 to 2008.  The stats that really grabbed my attention were 1. The elapsed time from the working fire declaration (10-75) until the Mayday, 19 minutes, and 2. Who found the Mayday firefighter.  First alarm units, excluding the F.A.S.T. or RIT team, found the Mayday firefighter 76.47% of the instances. Now, before I start, let me acknowledge the fact that RIT/RIC is essential on every working fire or event that requires firefighters to enter…
  • Firefighter "Fit for Duty" Workout Schedule

    Do you workout on shift?  Should you workout on shift and what is the best workout to perform?  How do you schedule your workouts around your shifts or calls? This is a major concern for the fire rescue athlete.  On one hand we know we should be working out to stay and get fit for duty. Yet , if we burn out in the gym we won't be able to perform when it really matters. I recently post workout options and get a lot of emails to post more.  But, before I do, I think its really important to keep the big "fitness" picture in mind and see how all these workouts should be organized.  Part of…

            Whether it’s halligans, hooks or hoses, the unfortunate truth is that too many firefighters are using inferior tools and equipment on the fireground…and this needs to stop. 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. There are numerous makes and designs of the halligan on the market today, and they populate nearly every truck, squad, engine and even medic…

His dad retired as an assistant chief from the Lucas County, Ohio Fire Department. Sid’s brother is riding rigs in Cincinnati as an engine company lieutenant. So Sid’s occupational path to the fire service was pre-ordained. Firefighting families can sometimes be dysfunctional and this was Sid’s case. His parents…

    Training for the Columbus Marathon during August is, well, first off done. And secondly, whoa, that was a hot month of training. See? 96.2 miles (which, how funny is that next to the 69.2 of July?), 10,851 calories burned, 6,979 feet climbed, and 18 hours spent running. Eighteen hours. That’s a lot of hours, you guys. That’s a lot of my August spent running. August in Ohio is hot and sticky and humid, and everything Amy Turn Sharp so eloquently writes. Running in the heat still remains difficult for me, but I feel like I’m coming into my own when it comes to the higher…

    Both boys sat in front of me at the breakfast bar this morning. I asked them normal questions about their night—“Did you sleep well? Did you dream? What did the purple minion do?”—as I turned to stare at the coffee pot. I stared really hard. And then I heard BigBrother ask LittleBrother, “Did the Tooth Fairy come?” I froze. I think the coffee pot froze as well. In fact, I’m quite sure time froze. Because I knew the answer. The Tooth Fairy, in fact, did not take the—gag—tooth from the pillow and replace it with money.

I feel that’s a going theme with school so far this year. “I’m not ready.” (And yet, I’m not even the one in school.) On the first afternoon the boys both brought home homework, my husband was working his 24-hour shift so I got to tackle the dual-help on my own. This is how things in the fire life work, of course. I am used to handling the not-quite-emergent emergencies on my own. The boys tossed their backpacks on the bar where we eat breakfast…

I slogged through two short runs for the Columbus Marathon, took a couple of days off, and then found myself faced with the choice of my mid-length run of seven miles or the long run of 15 miles. I almost chose neither run. There’s running while tired and running while exhausted. Every night, I almost threw up due to the sheer level of exhaustion I was enduring. I knew I couldn’t run…
