Good Luck Wayne - Let us know what you decide.
Wayne - What I see is a problem just like you saw. I am suprised at the unprofessional way he conducted himself. I would be leary of his "facts". What happened with him also happens with instructors who do not know what they are talking about but tell you as fact. Always check the resume. Better yet check whats missing from it. All his nozzle expertise and he was never a firefighter humm makes sense.
P.S. His comments about FDNY and nozzle position couldn't be more wrong.
