The Battalion.TV: True Reality, Truly Unscripted


The Battalion.TV: True Reality, Truly Unscripted

The brothers and sisters in this group are dedicated to promoting the World's ONLY web based Firefighter Reality series showcasing firefighters and their departments across the the U.S., Canada, Mexico and soon beyond.

The True Reality Truly Unscripted Webisodes not only show the daily lives of firefighters and other first responders, it's about the JOB & the BROTHERHHOD. The website also provides "Real Life" Training and often features free live web feeds with training you can use.

Supported by companies whose products are used in the Fire Service, and available for use in your department by contacting the manufacturer or service provider, The Battalion TV is working hard to show the Public what the real Fire Service is about, and that we don't sit around all day playing cards or video games.

Quick update:

We just returned from filming in Mexico for our "Donate Mexicali" used gear drive, and it was a complete success. All in all, we brought them over $75,000 in used gear.

With a last minuted donation of twenty SCBA's, all tested to spec, hydro tested bottles and new masks; as well as five from a firefighter in Colorado; we now have every member of the department that is on duty for a 24 completely safe from head to toe.

We also filmed in San Felipe where they hold the Baja California 100 and 500, we will be returning to film with that department during both races next year. It was beautiful there.


Thanks for supporting the Series by visiting the site, watching the webisodes and spreading the word about what we do!

The Battalion series now has over 92 webisodes for viewing. Tampa had the fifth in their series released and contains a house fire. Also Milwaukee series has a good fire in webisode 11. January is going to be FIRE MONTH with some of the biggest fires filmed with DC Fire & EMS in 2009. The show is trying to put a new webisode up weekly and looking at going back to Milwaukee and starting a new department webisode and several departments have shown interest.

Welcome! Be sure to check out all the webisodes and sign up and check out the store to help keep the series going! There is also a contest going on for the San Fran series!

Dave Furtado has funded a majority of this out of his own pocket and he has just recently been getting some good sponsors. This is a series that will sweep the firefighting tv world if it gets put on National TV!
