Great Job with the new Sim for the attached flat roof row frame. We have combined it with a powerpoint based question and answer program that seems to work well.

Stay safe

Chief, enjoyed your talk on "routine" emergencies the other day in St. Charles IL. Thanks for coming out! Made me think back about calls I've been on, and will change the way I go on calls in the future. Thanks you.

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!
Todd McKee

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.
