Me and my department had the honor and privledge of meeting New England FOOLS member PJ Johnson this weekend. He took time out of his vaction to our area to come train with us for a few hours and teach us some tricks and techniques none of us have ever seen before, but will surely pass on as invaluable tools for our mental tool bag. This is what firefighting, and the FOOLS brotherhood is all about. Stay safe brother!
PS: PJ said there’s a new NE FOOLS logo? If you get decals made of that I have a larger Badgerland FOOLS sticker I can send out to you.
Hey Rusty, thanks for email. trying to get some info on possibly starting a Boston or greater Boston FOOLS chapter. A still in reaching out stages to see if there's enough of a interest around here. One of the question that came up was "How do you handle injuries that happen in a FOOLS sponsored event?" meaning do you have insurance or will a printed up waiver hold up in court in someone decides to take it that far. I know most guys understand that your on your own and there's a chance that you may get nicked but i"m more concerned with the 1or 2 guys that want to push the matter.
Whats up my Brotha? Sorry to hear that Summer School 08 didn't materialize quite as planned. I may be comingout to Mass in October to help Dana out. Not sure yet as October is already pretty busy but I am goning to try.
