Don't Discount the Can

As a young firefighter at my first career job, I had a captain that made us take a can on just about every type of alarm. Fire alarm--take the can. Odor of smoke--take the can. The list goes on and it became a habit for us to grab the can. During my time there (it's not a real busy place) I never had the opportunity to see what it can do. It wasn't until I moved on that I became more interested in the water can (extinguisher) that I became a full convert and believer in the capabilities of…See More

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.
