"Outside The Box" Engine Company Operations

Engine Company work is often viewed as easy or not as fulfilling as "Truck Company work". This is absolutely not the case and some very "high speed" Engine Companies go to work everyday in very tough and arduous environments. They are only successful by relying on their relentless training, personal experiences and hunger to progress in the engine world.This group is geared toward Engine Company tactics that use "outside the box" thinking to accomplish. Its purpose is to exchange information…See More

Thanks for the greeting Phil...yes, a proud moment for sure. This was the morning after returning from FDIC, don't look too close you'll find the "bags under my eyes". LOL I am waiting for my morning update on those of late last night things were getting worse. Never thought half my family would be evacuating home due to wildfires...that's just crazy. My brother sent some pics from his phone...I'll try to put them up if I can figure it out...I'm not good at this"techno" stuff. But most importantly...they are keeping a good attitude and following evac orders. I'll keep you posted. I am hoping some Florida FF will need to brush up on their Air Management skills I can have you guys over for dinner! Great to see you in your gear...and at FDIC. Congrats again on that promotion!
Stay safe..and in touch!.

Hey Phil,
It was good meeting you, Mike, and Casey at FDIC. The book on Air Management is great, I look forward to trying to get some of it implemented in my own FD.

Stay safe!

Hi Phil,

Please allow me to introduce you to our special site for responders. It was designed for firefighters and other responders by responders. It is a great place to meet and have fun, join discussions and forums, play games and just have fun on good days. When you have a "bad call" it is a safe place to vent, debrief or let it all out to others that are there for you. Many of those here are trained in CISM and are peer counselors. Others are skilled at even more knowledgeable levels ... all here for you or your friends when needed. With over 25 years of firefighting and chaplaincy I can appreciate the need for as sight that is safe and helpful

Hey Phil,
We do have a 4 hour version that we teach to our Officer Development Class. It is identical to the Indy class minus the workshop, maybe 4 1/2 hours.

Stay safe.
