Excellent broadcast on FDIC online. It shows that if you plan for it, it can happen. Again superb.

Chief, Thanks for all your guidance throughout the years. You are a true motivator and innovator and we are all grateful for that. If I am half the chief officer you are I know I will be successful. I also want you to know that I have to order a new copy of your book because I wore out the original one. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

Chief,
I took the first Officer Development course that you gave at the Monmouth County Fire Academy. It was one of the most instructive courses that I took because of you teaching technique and personal experiences. I wanted to let you know that after taking your course I implemented a number of new SOPs (I stopped using the term SOG. SOGs are procedures without ba!!$, right) at the company level. I now have all firefighters that ride the apparatus wearing seatbelts in the apparatus (as well as in their POV), wearing chin straps at all times, and wearing the waist belt on their SCBA to name a few.
I just wanted to let you know how you inspire those around you and I respect and appreciate you as a Chief, an Instructor, and a Firefighter.
DON’T be the next one, BE Safe!

Welcome to the New Jersey Group. Make sure you invite your fellow New Jersey Brothers. This is your group so feel free to pass on some knowledge, start or join any discussion, or if you’re looking for a place to vent, vent away.

Chief,
This means that you will have the ability to start any discussions specifically related to this group. You will have access to the group as an administrator. I have learned that it hard to come up with new ideas for discussion on a regular basis. It is apparent, that you have some experience and knowledge that can be shared. let me know what you think.
Thanks

Chief,
You previously inquired about a metal enclosure on windows in one of the threads concerning strategies and tactics. Mark Gregory of 111 Truck in Brooklyn has a great deal of info on those. They are called VPS Windows and are replacing the HUD Windows. He can be located in this FE community. Contact him for more info. Hope this helps.
