Land Field Fires

For two days now,we had to put out fires from the land field,trash dump.I notice that the workers there does not wear and mask ,i would think they would because of the gasses that come from and land field.
What do you think,the city should tell the workers at the land field how dangeous the gasses could cause them health problems.

We have an explorer froup here and in the Suburb of Chicago where I started in the fire service. It's a great program. They say the way the first year is for a person in the fire service is the way they will be for the rest of their career. If we get them interested and working hrd they will be like that the rest of theri time. I know it affected me that way. We put up another question the "Common Sense Firefighting " page about roof operations, check it. I look forward to see the FD pictures also.
Take care Jim Mason Chgo FD

Glad to have you as a friend Brenda, You've got alot of duties at the firehouse. How big is the department total with all the firefighters?
I've been on a couple of different departments but never a combination dept. I'm sure that is a challenge.
We have another question on the "Common Sense Firefighting" about roof ventilation on commercial buildings, check it out.

A Fire Fighters Prayer

When our shift begins at the break of day.
I ask the Lord that you would go before us.
What ever we are called upon to do.
We are comfident you will be our strength.
For those unfortunate ones who find their selves
facing the unthinkable flames that would engulf
their lives.
We humbly ask that you would give us the priviiledge
to assist them to safety.
Above all,We ask that you would give us wisdom to
know what to do,and when to do it,and send you
Angels to show us the way.
In the midst of the flames,if we should be taken,This
is our request of you.
Please be the Father to our children,and the Provider for
our wifes,
In "Jesus" Name,,Amen
We need a poem board,thought you fire fighters may like this ,,,bt
