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.
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!
2nd Lt, Midway Hose Company Number 2, MBFD

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.
