I think that was my good looking twin. No really it was me. We were the fourth engine when everyone was planning to burn down the block. We backed down to a tower ladder and just then they got a handle on it. The needed more trucks to pull ceiling so we ended up the RIT team and I saw Tim. I was an easy target of his affections, that afternoon.

thanks for joining CSF (Common Sense Firefighting ). It's a leadership and fire ground decision making page on the site. Jump into any discussion at any time. There are always some good ones going on. I'm also a reliever . How many members do you get on the first due alarm?
