Starting work on a SOG for my department.I could use some help with SOG/SOP's already out there. I could also use help on setting up the training for air management as well. Thanks a head of time

Mike, thank you for the work that you and your partners do. This training is critical and must be taught to all firefighters. Thanks again for all you do. Will

Hey Missy...

Great to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed the classes. You are a credit to your organization and I hope you scale the ranks quickly and lead with passion.

Thank you so much for the valuable training you provides us at the South Carolina Firefighters Convention.

The message you are teaching will save firefighters lives!!

Deb... Hey pal...

That is a fine piece of work. I am shooting that to my partners and you will probably hear the whoops of joy all the way across the country.

You absolutely made my day. Your leadership WILL save lives.

I'm headed to Disneyland with my fam but will post any other thoughts that seem appropriate.

One possible addition would be the bottle rule that we list in our book. How many bottles before rehab... Lmk if you can't find it...

I am proud to serve at your side....
