Do seconds matters? come on.

I would like to take a long winded roundabout way to look at the importance of saving seconds in an effort to saving minutes on a fire scene. This came up when I noticed during night calls guys would wake up, put on their shoes, walk to the Apparatus and then take their shoes off. This didn’t make sense to me, I just don’t put my shoes on, but how could I tell them that they were wasting time. Throughout my short career I have always been told “seconds matter”, “seconds saves lives”, “seconds…See More

Justin Renner commented on Skip Coleman's blog post Garden Type Apartment Fire
"Yeah,I would have to say that is how we operate here as well. Unless no one calls in sick, is on vacation or Kelly day we run 3 on an Engine as well. It would have to be special circumstances to search off the hose as you advance in on the fire with…"

Justin Renner commented on Skip Coleman's blog post Garden Type Apartment Fire
"Do yous run 3 or 4 on an Engine. "Hasty" searchs as you refer to them are a catch 22 with us. We run 3 guys on all our Engines which only gives you a tailboarder on the nozzle and an Officer as the Heel man. On one hand 95% of the houses…"

Justin Renner commented on Skip Coleman's blog post Garden Type Apartment Fire
"I'm going to agree with just about everything said already. As a search size up, I will say the lack of smoke in Apt A windows and fire in the common hallway would lead me to believe that the door to Apt A on division one was left open. As…"

Justin Renner commented on Skip Coleman's blog post Boarded Up Multi-Family
"I too believe that every structure needs to be searched. My city under went major flooding back in 2008 and as a result large areas of the city are now plagued with flood houses. It is not uncommon to be called out to a working flood house fire.…"

Justin Renner commented on Skip Coleman's blog post Victorian House Fire Search
"Sir, on the stair comment, I have found in our area that some of the larger, older houses have a small stair case in the rear of the house that was used by the live in maids. It could easily be passed up as a closet door and would not be ideal in…"

"There is no other way to say it other than that this type of structure presents a lot of problems and difficulties and can come down to being a complete nightmare. It has the ability in some communties to have been sub divided into smaller rental…"

Justin Renner commented on Skip Coleman's blog post Quadraplex with a twist
"We too have a dedicated truck which we try to run with 4 guys. Our guys like to hit the roof cutting even when it may not really be the best choice. We have an older city with alot of legacy construction in the old town and light wieght in the new…"

Gary R. Burgin replied to Justin Renner's discussion supply hose question
"Before large diameter hose, most engine companies had two hose bays of 2 1/2" or 3" hose for supply lines.  This allowed the company to lay dual supply lines at the same time.  The bottom of each bay had a coupling hanging…"

Hector Rivera replied to Justin Renner's discussion supply hose question
"You can say it is both; for me it is an advantage to have the loop end 1/3 of the stacked hose (depending on the length and hose load) for ease retrieval, and better displacement. But some people dont understand the benefit behind because they…"

supply hose question

Did some looking and I can't put an exact answer together. What is the advantage or disadvantage to leaving the terminal end of your supply hose hang out of the back of your bed with the rest of the load on top of it. Is it tactal in some way or is it just a preferance.

Reality Firefighter TV

We all know that reality TV is huge with our generation and when one show makes it big, a dozen variations of the same show come out shortly after it. A big one that I have been hooked on are all those save our restaurant shows. You’ve heard of them “Bar Rescue, Restaurant Impossible, Kitchen Nightmares” just to name the big ones. They are all very similar and follow the same basic flow. Its starts with a failing business with crappy bookwork, a blown budget and best of all stubborn old owner… Continue
