Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I have got a few more years of stretching hose and throwing ladders in front of me, but I'm sure this cartoon will be me when that time comes. Can't imagine what it's like to know you won't be riding those big red rigs any longer - not sure I want to think about it. But for those of you who have served your years and shed sweat, blood, and tears, I say thank you for paving our way to a better fire service, and we accept the challenge to pave the way for the next generation.

Now, stop by the firehouse, let me pour you a cup of coffee so you can tell me some war-stories!

A few of you have been asking about the calendar's image - it's from a cartoon I did a couple of years ago. I know it's difficult to read on the post above, so here's a blow-up of that section.
