Would you mind taking a look at my 9/11 picture album to see if you or your collegues might recognise any of the fire fighters I photographed at Ground Zero back in 01 when i was working for the New York Post. I am heading to New York in July and would like to make contact with them. Any help with contact details would be greatly appreciated
John Chubb here from DFB Ireland. Just want to say....to attend your presentation alone made a 6000 mile round trip worthwhile.Drop me your email details to firstname.lastname@example.org I wish to discuss a future training initiative with you
Chief Tracy, I am honored to have been able to meet you this weekend in Charlotte. Thank you for sharing you knowledge and experience with us. You are doing extraordinary things for the fire service and I am very thankful for you. I was very humbled by the way, you presented yourself thank you.
Where can i get something in writing about the recommended flow rate for today's fires being at least 150gpm? This is for justification reasons, so it needs to be a non-bias type document. If you can help let me know.
Chief, I had the pleasure of hearing you speak at a seminar in New Jersey a few years back. You made many of us in that room better firefighters and I wanted to say thanks. Hope to have the opportunity to hear you speak again soon.
