Just sent you a friend request. We met when you were here in Seattle and had lunch together talking about vert vent of a truss construction.
I wanted to reach out and see if you have some insight into differences in construction feature that can help identify whether a flat roof building has a cockloft/attic space and/or when there is no space but just ceiling/insulation in the rafter space/and roof deck.
We have a lot of buildings with both types of construction and we recently had a top floor fire with a mis-identification of a cockloft where there was none. Significant difference in fire spread potential and resource allocation. No harm done but I would like to train the crews on how to quickly differentiate between the two.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you, your family and extended family !!
Just a quick note, I have done exatly what you have stated for 35 years as a firefighter in trying to reduce the casualties and sadly became one myself. I was voted out of my department because I held a Chief accountable as well as a member of his company for coming to a call smelling of alcohol and admitting such. I guess I can only say that under my leadership, EVERYONE WENT HOME, something I am very proud of !! But, I have also died internally for what has been done. My short story tells it all !!
What are you talking about with the music? I have just about anything you can think of on my ipod. I'll work on a play list just for you. I'll have it ready when Mike and I pick you up at the airport. Have a great Christmas!
Thanks Chief for the response. We basically have everyone in line. Im sure that there are some that wont say they are not for this but act like they are. That is inevitable we all understand. In the last few years my dept has made great strides to get everyone together. It is believe it or not working. We are training together, responding more as a dept, and even conversating with each other.lol Alot of the frontline members are tired of having to do it all ourselves. One co responds with 10 another with 2 another with 5 and so on. Our thing is lets fully staff as many trucks instead of spreading everything out. This is going to happen for certain its just a matter of working all the particulars out. Like you said and we are finding out it all evolves around $$$$$. Do you know where to look for the funds and grants that may be available to us? I believe thats where we need to start. Not to get off the subject but by chance do you and chief Nasta still run the Engine and truck ops class for the state? I attended that a few years ago at the Dempster center. It was excellent.I would like to get my guys into that. Thanks again Ron
Hey Chief, Im a Captain out of Union Beach in Monmouth County. We are currently in the process of trying to consolidate our dept. We have four houses and are looking to put them into one or two. My question to you is how? How do we do this our town will not be able to build us a firehouse and we are not a wealthy fire district like most of the county. Is there grants and could you give some advice? Any help or advcie is greatly appreciated. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance, Ron
We max at 75% at 30 yrs; with Plan B max at 5 additional yrs. Like I said if my health holds I am good. State pension system for firefighters here. However, I can go tomorrow if I need... Delete Comment
Hi Chief, I appreciated your topic on truck work at the MD. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the First Due Engine: Occupied Exposure. Keep up the good work an dI look forward to reading your book one of these days.
I posted a blog about buckling helmets and Bobby told me you were the man that brought this home to NY & NJ. Please take a look at the BLOG and put your thoughts to it. I would love to hear any ideas you have regarding this! How do I bring this to my guys and students??
