Looked good Frank. Did you guys coime up with the idea for the DRD? This will make a good fire house bulletin board poster.

Stay safe!
Frank, It's a good idea. Direct to the point quick lessons that can be delivered informally by displaying in strategic locations in the house. The simple things that can be done that will make a difference or the things that are practiced/utilized regularly that can be forgotten over time if not utilized.

As far as additional topics.....

Haz Mat - Eight Step Process
May Day - LUNAR
Hybrid Vehicle - Generalized info RE: cable coloring, locations and avg drain down time
Roof Ventilation - The hands off technique
Air Management -
Forcible Entry - The not so common challenges and hints to overcome

I would look at the FE training video line up. There are allot of short quick to the point videos that can be illustrated into a educational poster.

Thanks! Keep up the good work allot of us are benefiting for what you are doing.

I was very surprised and happy to see Fire Engineering incoporating the posters into their magazine. I think it was a hit and hopefully hanging up on firehouse walls across the nation. I posted it on the "probie" board at our firehouse for them to look over by also showed it to other members and made sure they saw it. Other topics off the top of my head could be PPV, light weight construction, basment fire tactics, scene size up
