Rusty,
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!
Brad

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.
Thanks
Sandy

Rusty Welcome I need to ask you to use your full name. We are trying something a little different here: To ensure we have the best communication possible, we are asking that you use your full name if you wish to participate. By eliminating anonymous posts we hope to elevate the discussion and maintain a sense of open and honest sharing. The intent is not to exclude anyone but to protect everyone from unwanted and inappropriate postings.
Thanks Bobby
