Welcome to the world's greatest training site. This is where the serious trainers come to train & learn from each other. Please allow me to invite you to the group called "HAZMAT PLACARDS TO SUCCESS". This group is for the firefighter, the EMA officer, and the HazMat Technician. I would love to hear what you have to say. This is a great time to join the group as our main focus is currently the first stages of the HazMat Incident.

Your friend,
Todd McKee

Thanks for joining CSF (Common Sense Firefighting). We're working to make it a decision making on the fire ground page. I see you are the chief of the dept. It's always good to hear the chief's perspective on fire ground decisions. Where is Otisco FD?

Yes, grew up there and worked a ton of jobs. WIXT, Eastern, Marcellus, vol at MCFD and Air-1. Also have a brother and a father that are involved with the fire service.

How are things up there, I was just up teaching a class for Canastota, it was COLD.
