Hey Chief
I just wanted to say hello. I've been so busy with Common Sense Firefighting on this site that I haven't gotten around to the rest of ti until now. I hope all is good with you and yours. Take Care

Chief Coleman:

It would be an honor if you would join the group called "Unique HazMat Incidents". I will be presenting this at FDIC in 09 and would love to hear your thoughts on our discussions.

Your book IMS for the Streetsmart Fire Officer is on several of our promotional exam study lists; and I have to say it's one of the best books on common sense (which alot of books lack) firefighting. I appreciate you writing something that is fundamentally sound. The Oriented Search is by far the most sensible approach to affecting a successful search operation. Enjoy retirement...

Chief, Feel free to take a look at the HazMat forum called HazMat News and Training. Would love to hear what you have to say about te ERG discussion. Todd

If you would be kind enough to email me some info on you speaking at my local FD I would like that. Todd

Chief, how are you doing? Hope retirement is treating you well. Please give me a call at West Chester Fire Headquarters (777-1133) and I'll buy you lunch. I'd like to discuss some training opportunities.
Talk to you soon,

I am a huge fan of your book. It has proven to help me not only as a firefighter, but as an Instructor too. If you have any input for my Flashover group it would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Chief, Feel free to pass some of your knowledge to me...... Would love your input on my HazMat Forums....

Hope retirement is surrounded in golf. Come see what you taught me while you were in Elkhart, we are having a real good discussion on command in the Fire Ground Strategies group. Plugged your book.

Hey Skip, hope you are well, hope to visit with you at FDIC. Lets talk about coming back to IL for the instructors conference

Yes, that was us. I thought "the seattle guys" moniker was stuck to us tightly enough to be instantly recognizable. Then you go and retire right away. Hardly time for me to change the credits in my search lesson to your new title. Looks like a good line-up for the roundatble live this year. Should be interesting.

Hey Skip, just saying hello from Adrian. We've bumped into each other a few times over the years, mostly at FDIC. Take care, if I can ever find a way to get you up here someday, I'll let you know. Thanks for all you do - Jeff
