Welcome to the world's greatest training site. This is where the serious trainers come to train & learn from each other. Please allow me to invite you to the group called "HAZMAT PLACARDS TO SUCCESS". This group is for the firefighter, the EMA officer, and the HazMat Technician. I would love to hear what you have to say. This is a great time to join the group as our main focus is currently the first stages of the HazMat Incident.
Hey Sister...don't be sending your hubby up here empty handed....there be a few things I be needing....LOL Well as long as he comes with large amounts of cash so we can buy beer and go fishing we will be fine! Then we can go out in the middle of nowhere and mess with the bears...ha hah
By the way...you guys should seriously try to make it up here someday. It would be a trip you will remember the rest of your lives!
The guy who posted below me....watch out for him...he told me that when I play the pipes to be sure I cover my "A" h***...LOL
Dougs a lucky guy to have a good woman like you so be sure to keep him out of trouble...seems like I'm not capable of doing that by myself so I should find me a good woman who doesn't mind Alaska...LOL
As for the teaching thing, I was the same way. I think everyone is at first. It took me a while but each and every time I did it I got better. I think a lot of it has to do with what you're speaking on. I think the more into it, the more passionate you are about the subject, the better it comes off and the better you do. And then there are those days when it just doesn't go well and you have to say oh, well.
Give it time buddy! Hey John and I are in Fripp Island SC this coming weekend teaching. I'll be thinking of ya!
To reply to your question of Why I do what I do? It is simple it is a way of life, I grew up around the fire service my Dad, Uncles and Neighbors all were firefighters. I love it when I see the look on a new firefighter's face when they realize that all the blood and sweat that went into the long training hours all comes together on an emergency run and everyone clicks working as a team. It is neat to see the future firefighters moving forward and making a difference and learning from us the true meaning of Pride and Ownership in this GREAT Profession!!
