Bio:
My name is Scott LaPrade and Im a 20 year career firefighter with the Leominster Ma Fire Department. I am assinged to Ladder Co 1 out of the downtown firehouse. I have appeared in numerous fire publications from Firehouse, Fire Rescue - Fire Engineering- Fire Apparatus-First Respnoder News. I also work with a Fire Protection Engineer shooting past fires and working with the insurance companies to determine the cause of the fire. The lastest investigation was the fire in Boston Ma that claimed the lives of two Boston Jakes.

Hey Brother,

Hi Scott,

Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.

I hear you. I used to ride with squad 4 in Brooklyn as a kid with my dad and the little instamatic camera I would sometimes carry sucked compared to today's camera's. Even got to see the super pumper at work a few times. I did learn alot riding both in FDNY and Boston that came in handy when I was on the job. There are many good lessons learned when sitting at the firehouse kitchen table.

You have great pictures on your web site. It is nice to see your son with you buffing. It reminds me of when I was his age doing the same thing with my dad.

Good ole Leominster. Well Scott we travel in similar circles. I rode with Mark a week before you did back in Dec. and I grew up back there. On my next trip home we should get together for a pint or two. Or if you head out to Colo Springs for the IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial (quite a photo and drinking op) let me know.

Good Job, Stairwell fire. Too many guys looking to play in the beginning but, what can you do. Vacant job on the day tour and a little rope work. Not a bad tour for America's Truck.....
