Enjoyed your recent article in Fire Engineering regarding RIT. One aspect of RIT that is seldom addressed in getting in service. As a F/F in DC I recognized a capability gap in getting in service fast and safely with my RIT. I developed a RIT kart, (TURK) Turnell, Universal, Rescue, Kart. It’s a fast and simple way of deploying the RIT basket. Guys love it because it’s simple. I have not approached the west coast yet because I'm not sure how they deploy their RIT. Take a look at our website and let me know what you think. My contact info is on the website. www.turkrescue.com
Man my doctor upped my pain killers to morphine pills. So now I'm on morphine pills, norco pain killers, vicodin, xanax and soma. I feel like I'm in a constant la la land. This sucks. No pain, but still sucks feeling this way.
That is crazy about the college thing lol. Yeah, I've been on the pain killers for a while now, since the original injury. Sometimes I stop taking them for a week or two and I feel myself get kinda shaky for a day or two, so I won't be taking that many. I've decided I will be returning to the service after my physical rehab, so most likely the summer of next year.
Hello there, I see that you posted in the past about CAFS. I have posted a reply on another thread. Please check it out. Please feel free to contact me with any of your questions. I believe that I can help you out.
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.
Will you be at the CTC meeting at FDIC on Apr 10? I'll be there so perhaps we'll run into each other. As Brian was saying in his post, I think the discussion/networking will really take off after that meeting.
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 HERE. -- Bobby Halton
