Second Due with First Due Eyes

As a late arriving officer there are some things that need to be done before just heading inside for the sake of heading inside. As I always mention, follow your departments guidelines and assignments.

In particular, as second due there are some things that I like to specifically do in concert with my assignment. If my assignment is water supply, I ensure that that task is successfully completed. In addition to my assignment, here is a list of additional tasks that I like to complete…

Are You a Hoarder?

Have you seen the recent articles, classes and information on hoarding? It is a real problem for us as a society and for us as firefighters.



The dangers are obvious based on the conditions of the homes and buildings we have to enter and search. It can make our push very slow and can easily disorient us with so many obstacles.



Just like with these homes, some firefighters are hoarders. Not in the sense…

How Much is Enough?

  This very question was posed to me by a member who was complaining about training.  I looked and thought about the question and then asked a question of my own: "Are we good enough?  Are you standing here telling me that we, as a department, are good enough to quit practicing?"

  The response was one of exasperation and a roll of the eyes.  But, I never got the answer from him. I think I know what he was thinking, but he never gave me a real answer to satisfy my curiosity.…

Really?!?!

I'm going to be real careful about how I word this post as not to offend anyone. But I have to admit, I have been shaking my head about some posts for a while now and regarding some comments to posts.



I know that the new 'stuff' coming from UL, NIST, ISFSI and others is not popular with some, and I'm fine with that. I have no problem with that at all.



I know and understand that some in the fire service may have taken their tactics to one extreme or another for varying…

Jason,
We still use the written log book system know as the Journal or "The Book". The house watchman is responsible for keepng the book updated at all times throughout the day and night. Typical entries include responses out of and returning to quaters, daily drill activities, incoming personell, visitors entering quaters, cheifs entering quaters, and unusual occurences to name a few. Our responses are also entered into the NYFIRS computer system upon returning to quaters by the officer on duty. Our hosewatch is manned 24 hours a day at 3 hour intervals.
