Welcome, to the greatest training site in the world! This is where the serious trainers come together and grow as a family. I would like to invite you to visit the HazMat Group called HazMat News & Training. Feel free to share your thoughts. Todd C. McKee

We need to learn from the past and work toward the goal that "everyone goes home." The fact remains that no matter how "big" you think that fire may have been, the location of the fire and the fact that it was coming out the window over their heads, was dangerous.

You gotta have thick skin Bro.
If you post a pic or a vid that has anything even close to what others may percieve as unsafe, they will smoke you for it. Some of it will be right on the money.....others, "not so much".
The point I was trying to make is that REALISTIC training will save Brothers lives, and if you train correctly you will perform the task correctly.
Keep may need it someday.

Bradenton Florida and the Cedar Hammock Fire Department. Started out as a combo department then went totally career after many years. Sure do miss it and the guys. Not many left anymore. Three more are retiring in July that were my rookies at one time. Guess that tells my age!

Aaron, guess we are neighbors and brothers as well. Moved to Ulah 10 years ago and went to the station to volunteer my time and knowledge but no one ever called me back. Have authored and taught college level courses for the Florida Fire Science degree program. Started and was the first Fire Science coordinator for the Vo-Tech to certify Firefighters. Retired as Deputy Chief of operations and sure miss the service. Take care and be safe!

I hope you don’t mind me busting into your group, as I’m not yet a NC firefighter. I hope to become one soon, however, when I can get my house in Swan Quarter finished and can afford to move down there without a job.
I’m very into training, being an instructor, FF2 and working on Fire Officer I. I’m also an EMT, currently basic but I expect to regain my Critical Care next year after a refresher, a HazMat Tech, also in need of a refresher, and I’m pursuing more Tech Rescue Courses, currently only have Confined Space. That’s my volunteer stuff, I work as an Emergency Manager, so NIMS and ICS are part of my DNA, I helped put NIMS together, along with a couple of thousand EMs.
My biggest concern with moving to NC is getting my qualifications transferred, the State Fire Marshal’s website says that NC is pretty restrictive, even when our county’s fire academy is recognized as one of the best by Fire & Rescue. The National Certifications should help.
