Thanks Anthony! I just wanted to let you know that I read your "Fireground Strategies" book when I took a Fire Company Administration course at Ocean County College in New Jersey when I lived up there and found a lot of great tips! I have never gotten the chance to meet you, but I do know that your department is one of the best known in Jersey. I wish you were teaching at teh Monmouth County Fire Academy when I still lived up there. I was the last class to have been taught by the late Capt Fitzgerald from Newark, so I went through tthe acadwey in 2002. I was a volunteer in Union Beach. I am now a career firefighter in Fort Myers, Florida and I am still using great tips from firefighters in your department, along with FDNY and Jersey City. Firefighting is much different in the south, which styaffing and knowledge issues. Fire has developped much faster with woodframe and warehouse type construction in the north. CBS with woodtruss buildings have taken over down here giving a false sense of security when it comes to the strength of a building. I have been reading some of your posts and I am taking some knowledge from many others on this site and am trying to develop them into training for my department. Thank you and if I have any questions, I will be sure to get back to you. And if you ever come down to florida to teach, it would be a pleasure to meet you.

I had to do to that once and it was real difficult. I am a very energetic speaker and it was hard for me to sit for one hour! You did great! Keep in touch! Todd

Chief,
I am having problems regarding the NFPA requirements. I am and have been receiving major pushback from my department (including Chiefs) regarding some of the procedures regarding gear, equipment, and apparatus inspections that I have established for my company. The procedures specify when and how to perform the inspections, as well as, checklists that record the activities. I have taken the information from the various NFPA standards and the Manufacturers documentation, and recommendations. The issue is (as I have been told by numerous past and present officers) that NJ has not adopted NFPA STDs; therefore, we don’t have to follow them. I am in the process if trying to determine if that is a true statement, but even if it is not, there is nothing that states that we can’t and shouldn’t. I feel that if (god forbid) there is an incident; I (as an officer and person) have done everything possible to ensure the safety of my firefighters. Am I off the wall for thinking like this? No, I hope.
Questions;
If there was an incident are we not going to be held to the national STDs in a court of law?
Other than the POSHA Document from the Division of Fire and Safety is there any documentation that states NJ does or does not follow NFPA STDs?
Thanks
DON’T be the next one, BE safe!

Chief,
Regarding the DRD, I would again refer to Mark Gregory from 111 in Brooklyn. If you contact him, he has some great info on the DRD. Hope this helps. -PJ
