Hey Eric;
Retirement is good. So far this year I have been in Costa Rica, Arkansas, Penn., Maryland and Va. Mostly doing training but some vaca too! I do not have any plans on going to Ca. in the near future, but if you put together a class I will gladly come!
Hope all is well. I noticed something about the Downey award, what gives?

I was curious if you were out at the Wichita HOT 2009. I may have met you out there in the elevator class, but wasnt sure. I was one of the "Colorado guys" that made it out there. I didnt realize you were from California?

You don't know me but I was wondering if Newquist still worked for you guys? If so...say hello from me. We went to Butte Fire Academy together and I have not seen him since. Thanks. Enjoy your posts by the way.

I'm not trimming!!! (my moustache) Hey brother, just decided to drop in and say "Hey". I like this format much better than that other one, nobody understands firemen on the other one and they keep asking irritating questions.

ps-NO TRIMMING (at least not our mustaches)

I know its a pretty big state, and you are a little North of where I am going, but would you be able to reccomend anything fire related to do near the Los Angelos area? We will be traveling to San Pedro, CA in a month or so, and was curious if there was anything interesting to do. Sorry if you dont know however, THANKS!!!!

Dear Friend,

Please allow me to invite you to the group called HazMat Placards to Success. This group will allow firefighters to discuss a step by step process for a Hazardous Materials response. From the firefighter to the hazmat technician. The first step has been posted in the group, with many more steps to come.

Thank you!

Hi Eric
I'm a member, and I've been talking with Ben but just thought you might have something else being the V.P. . I have about 6 or 7 guys that are interested but it is hard to get the career guys and the paid on call guys schedules to meet up.

Hello Eric, I wish I could have gotten to FDIC for the Brotherhood Bash but money is tight right now I hope for next year. Maybe you could send me somethings to help get a chapter stated in Adrian MI.

Hey Eric,
