Jeff Clayton commented on Dave Stacy's blog post Water "Pushing" Fire
"Dave, lets also remember that every situation will differ, and the length of your lay will have a lot to do with your decision. As will the staffing that you mentioned. Lets concentrate on safely and effectively applying GPM to the seat of the…"

Jeff Clayton commented on Dave Stacy's blog post Water "Pushing" Fire
"Dave, I'll give you a few short answers, then explain. Can fire be "pushed"? Yes, I try to do it every opportunity I get. Have I done it wrong? Yes! Should you attack from the unburned side? Of course. The two previous posts…"

"15 years in a Scott myself...from the old 2A, to the 2.2, then the 4.5. Like most have said, you can't beat a Scott. Easy to use, easy to trouble-shoot, easy to don & doff, and as reliable as a good hunting hound! I've worn a few other…"

Ya I've been a member here for awhile. I just havent logged in.
I agree lots of info in here. Did you ever get that FF Survival/RIT Instructor course from the OFM under your belt? Teaching another course to a couple of local depts in the next couple of weeks. If you are looking for a sign off opportunity might be able to arrange something?

Thanks Jeff. I do believe that it will be published. As an author for FE I send them several pieces at a time and they pick which ones to use.
I'm glad you enjoyed it and that you found it useful.

Thanks so much for your resposne. You comments should be screamed from the highest buildings in the world. Fire loads are worse, as is the heat release from these fire loads yet we are being taught the same old fire flow crap as was taught 40 years ago. Your right on!

-Hi Jeff. Yeah sure go ahead and use the quote, "If you want to stand around and admire your work than become a painter". This was directed at FF that cut roofs and then stand there admiring the h*** they just cut.
-Firefighters that perform vertical venting must cut the roof and get down. The longer ff are on the roof, the longer they are in danger. Get down and get another job. Remember the manpower shortage? Get down and get another assignment.

Hi J.
I was on Kentville for 1 1/2 years when I first joined the fire service in '88 then bought a house in New Minas and switched. If Gary is your dad I work with him at the chip plant.
