Mick,
Thanks for joining CSF (Common Sense Firefighting). It's a fire ground decision making and leadership page on the site. Jump into any discussion at any time. There are some good ones going right now. I think you'll like the threads on the page by looking at your page here and the web site. We could use your perspective. How many members do you get on the first due alarm Hilton Head FD?

Greeting Chief,

Spent 8 years in Georgia... have been a Fire Chaplain/Firefighter for over 25 years in all.

Our new project is a web site to provide stress support to all responders... it is staffed by highly trained responders to care for the responders in need.

Hey Chief,

Thanks for the reply on the Building a Team discussion! Celebrating successes is often overlooked because we are all so damn driven! Step back, take a breath and then charge on!

Thanks again!
Scott

Yes, It looks like a good site. Just got back from the Command Staff Meeting and Loggie day in Cola.

Imagine that.

Read your blog. Definitely a different world here. None of the nonsense of the other place so far - but they both have value.

It's pretty neat to be able to connect with some of the biggest names in the fire service - like yours.
