Hello Jim,

Things are going well thanks. How have you been? All has been quiet both in the city and on the Island for me, I guess it's safe to say that I'm currently a "white cloud" (I hate being a "white cloud"). How about you, lots of fires or not so much?

I'll be sure to take a look at the link as you suggested. Tell Frank I said hello and that I'm getting some interest from guys regarding the "Last Chance" device.

Speak with you soon, be safe!

Tom

Hi Duff,

I'm on the WFD safety committee(first meeting on Mon 11/24) and I signed up for another committee but for the life of me I can't remember which one it was.?!
What were the other committees?

Jim,

Thanks for accepting my firends request. I am a fire fighter and incident photographer over here in England and I am keen to get to know fellow fire fighters across the US with a view to arranging assignments to photograph fire departments.

I look forward to getting to know you better and to hopefully meeting you in person some day.

Regards

Sean
