I am working with the training officer to update the training codes in Firehouse Software and remember hear you talk on the ISFSI podcast that you use the software to track all you training. If you could can you send me a list of your codes to give us an idea of what other departments are doing? Thanks for your help.
Thanks for the tips about the FOOLS the other day. I talked to DAVE T and it looks good. I ve been on a couple of depot but never a combination dept. I'm sure that is challenging. Espically when it comes time to give assignments on the fire ground.
I've started a new oage on this site called "Common Sense Firefighting " We're using one of Dave Traiforos' picutres to talk about ventiltion at commercial structures. Brian, If you have any time check it out and tell me what you think.
Hey Kaz, Roark here.
So this is a project that i took on. Interested in your insight/opinions/suggestions for IFN's direction. Also, knowing how busy you are, I was wondering if you would be willing to maybe write a training article now and again?
Anyway, take a look at www.indianafirenews.com and let me know what you think. Its far from finished but its at least on its way.
Hello Brian, my name is Kevin Moeller, I was able to download your powerpoint on air management, and would like to use it for my dept. training. I took Mike Gagliano's class at FDIC this year, and your pwrpoint is very well put together. Please drop me a line. I am the Chief of Training for the City of Seymour FD in WI. and also an instructor for Northeast WI Tech. College in Green Bay. I am an instructor for a Fire School in northern wisc. and we specialize in RIT training, this might be something we could integrate into our programs. I already spoke to Mike G. about this and have his blessings. Thanks.
Sorry I missed you at FDIC too Brian. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend on May 18th. My brother-in-law is getting married on May 17th and I am in the wedding party. Scott Crouch already was gonna hook me up for some post class fishin on the Joe. However, I had to VERY RELUCTANTLY decline this most hospitable offer due to the blessed event. I plan on getting over by you guys soon. I just don't know when.
Thanks. It was good to see yu too and I wish we had more time together. My phone battery went dear as my charger crapped out and it took all day Thursday to get it charged up. I could not call anyone as I did not have thier numbers on paper.
My guys were in town Thurs night and so I felt obligated to hang with them thereafter. See you soon.
Brian welcome to the Smoke Diver Group. I know Indiana does not have a Smoke Diver program but you will be glad to know that 2 Wayne Township members have come through our course and have a plan to start one in Indiana in the future. We need about 8 more trained members in Indiana to make it work. If you are interested in learning more I would suggest you make contact with Nolan Bastian who is a member of this group and or Matt Stewart (Capt Wayne Township) who is heading up our Northern Division. Let us know if we can provide you any information.
We are excited to have you participate in our discussions and interactive forums. Before you begin posting, please take a moment to read our policy page. -- Bobby Halton
