If there is tolerance for mediocrity with small, seemingly insignificant things, it is harder to demand excellence in the more important tasks.

There has to be a level of expectations that require excellence in all tasks, no matter how small or large.

Expect excellence and receive excellent outcomes. Tolerate mediocrity and receive mediocre results.

Which would you prefer?

Here is a quick drill for figuring out hose stretches for larger complexes or properties with long set backs. The key is to get out and figure this out long before the call comes in. Share and add your own information to it.

Here is a look at an explanation of the webbing video we showed last week to escape from a basement. Of course, size of windows will dictate the level of difficulty, but the technique will work on smaller windows if practiced with.

Good video Jason. We are in the middle of a building construction In service in our department. I will be sharing this with our members. Thanks brother!

This video is one we did a couple of years ago when we had an opportunity to get inside a home that was scheduled for demolition. The house was a balloon frame constructed house and we were able to get some great pictures of the interior structural components.

Use it for you training or as an addition for your building construction classes and thanks for viewing.

Here is a quick video on setting up and storing your webbing. If you have other methods please share them!
