Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.

Yeah, a lot of guys around here miss that truck school that we were doing regularly a few years back. Maybe someday we can put something together and give you all a call. I just read your reply again and I missed that you added the locker puller were the point is? That's different than I pictured. Can you send me a picture? I added the V on my halligan at the end of the adze, but I don't think I've seen what your talking about. I can send you my email address if you need it.

Pretty much so. Some officers like to work, some don't.
Any more buildings down there we can tear up?? That was a good time....

I carry a small halligan.Instead of the point end on my tool I have a locker puller. This way, I have the fulcrum capabilities of the adz and fork but, I add the lock puller to my inside teams options for entry. I can take a picture for you. Congrats on the promotion. Hopefully, we can get back down your neck of the woods soon. Keep in touch...

Brian, we could use your input in our group we are listed on page 2. Tactical Building Blocks & Air Management
This group will focus on aggressive interior firefighting. We will address tactics that increase your chance of not getting jammed up and cover what actions to undertake if you do.We will cover some big issues as well as small tactical tips.

Hi Brian -- I hope all is well up your way too. Unfortunately, I'll be skipping Indy this year (too much to do here and no money!) Maybe we'll see each other in Baltimore in July. Take care.
