I wrote this article a few years back. I still feel that the information in it holds true. Please look at it and see what you think.

Eric? Very good article and also very true to point. I always tell my cadets that the Engineer is the most important job on the Fireground and probably the hardest working for the first few minutes or so.
Excellent article Eric, I couldn't have said it better myself.
Great article Eric!

Must be everyone fled for facebook and tweet.

When it comes to responsibility of the apparatus the Engineer has a lot, he is responsible for the truck, the equipment and the men when riding in it, then at the fire scene the Engineer has the responsibility of the firefighters on the hoselines.

Aside from having responsibility of the Engine, he alot of times is bussier than command.
