Plan of Attack: Something we can all do to train ourselves. Get a door and cut it to about 3'x3', frame and all and put some locks on it. This way members will see exactly what you need to do to force locks. It is easier to see them in quarters then on the fire ground. It's training...

Mike,glad to meet you over the weekend, had a great time with the fires and dinner conversation. Hope to see you back up this way soon.

Unfortunatly the benefit recipient died Sunday night, but the funds raised will go far with his wife and children

Thanks Mike. I'll be there from 9/26 till 10/4 so might catch the Chief on the 3rd. The Chief at the academy has approved for me to spend some time with your company as part of the programme. If you don't mind I'll call you when I'm there and confirm a day and time. Thanks for your help. I look forward to meeting you.

I'll definately be in New York. I have a formally arranged visit to your training department. The scholarship is based on the tactical deployment of aerials, something we don't do as well as you guys. Besides that I'm looking for some informal visits, ride alongs, training and "shop talk" so I can get the most out my trip. You can't beat getting amongst it with the guys. I'll keep you posted with dates, and will be real keen to meet up.

Hey Mike. New Zealand here. Application to get to the USA is all done. I've got to have some interviews soon, so here's hoping. Are you still with Ladder 58? Is that a tower ladder? If so I'd be keen to discuss some stuff with you specific to tower ladders. That's similar to our set up.
Regards

I will definately be in touch. It's fantastic to see the international botherhood alive and well. If you ever come down to this part of the world, make sure you let me know. You will be well looked after, with plenty of places to stay, things to do, people to meet and fires to talk out. Have a great day.
