"Rig Books"?

At our dept. we have a "rig book" on each fire rig, which is a reference to the apparatus and the tools carried on it. This includes rig specs, pumping capacity, operation and maitenence of certain tools, type of fuel they take, oil, etc. We are working on updating them, or making new ones all together, as they have become out of date and disorganized.

Take a look and sign up to our group we could use your input. Tactical Building Blocks & Air Management. If you search groups by most members we are list at the top.
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.

Welcome Joe I need to ask you a favor. We are trying something a little different here: To ensure we have the best communication possible, we are asking that you use your full name if you wish to participate. By eliminating anonymous posts we hope to elevate the discussion and maintain a sense of open and honest sharing. The intent is not to exclude anyone but to protect everyone from unwanted and inappropriate postings.

Thanks Bobby
