I didn't make it to Bloomington this year although we did have a couple of guys that went. I went to Jasper instead this go around. I was getting a little burned out after that. I took four classes from Jan through April and needed a break. I am studying to recert for my EMT right now. Like a dummy I let mine drop so now I have decided to retest. Go figure.
Southwest of Indy about 75 miles or 75 miles due north of Evansville. We are the little bump in the state about 2/3rds of the way down the state on the IN, IL border. Follow US 41 south just south of Terre Haute. Thanks for the ad!
It's nice to see your commitment to training ! It is the back bone of the fire service as change is starting to take the place of yesteryear. Our future is based upon firefighters like yourself. If your right never back down,but always be open to constructive criticism. Glade to have you in the training community !!
Next time your in the area, give us a holler and we'll give you the nickel tour. I saw that you're a training officer, that's great! Keep the passion, sometimes it's hard. If you need any help, give me a yell. I work with a training company on the side, and come across some good ideas. I can't take credit for them, but sure take advantage of the info. Take care.

I noticed you are you have the same problem I had to fight with, the old timers not wanting to change. i have a few tricks but I am always looking for more.. if you have anything that helped you bridge that gap i would be glad to hear about how you did it.....what has worked for me so far is during classroom drills i give the "old timers" a "what do you think?" and with hands drills on I have the "seasoned" officers lead a station. there are always one or two that will just sit in the back and talk, or just watch and complain.but for the most part atleast in the classroom setting they have come around a bit. I just had to remember that "old school" stuff still works just as long as its safe.... hope this helped for you, and I'm always looking for advice in return on the same subject. though advice is free and some times you get what you pay for. our job is to save and be safe, as long as the fire got put out and they all came home you did your job Thanks
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.
we could use your input in our Tactical Building Blocks group. We are on the side under featured groups.
This group will focus on aggressive interior firefighting. We will address tactics that increase your chance of not getting jammed up and cover what actions to undertake if you do.We will cover some big issues as well as small tactical tips
Thanks for the comment about the IFIA. We have really been fortunate that there are so many people in Indiana willing to stand up and be part of some real change. Please let me know anything the association can do better at!
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
