Please allow me to invite you to the group called HazMat Placards to Success. This group will allow firefighters to discuss a step by step process for a Hazardous Materials response. From the firefighter to the hazmat technician. The first step has been posted in the group, with many more steps to come.
Ijust saw your comment about college station...i went down there to meet with Ron Siarnicki...
Anyway, when you called me alittle bit ago I was in the middle of an apparatus project and didn't even realize what you were talking about...I'm going to try to get out there for those funerals on thursday and friday as well. Are you riding with someone? Want to ride together?
Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. I have been out of town and I needed to check with Roger. He said he is willing to do the class again we just need to pick a C-shift day so he and I are both off. Call me at 817-929-1108 and we can pick a couple of days to look at.
Thanks for joining CSF (Common Sense Firefighting). It's a fire ground deision making page. Join in at any time . We have a few good discussions going right now. Where is River Oaks and how many members do you get on the first alarm? Do you haver web site for the risk mgnt instrution?
In all my researching, I had never heard of this wonderful site I just started using this week. It's Google Scholar! All of the information on here is from credible sources and checked for reliability and validity. It's been great to help me with my current projects, having a great database in occupational biomechanics of firefighting and occupational physiology of firefighting too. Some more tips to research...Oklahoma State U, Illinois State U, and University of Indiana at Bloomington has a whole sect of their kinesiology department devoted to researching health and wellness of firefighters.
Also, if you or anyone you know ever want to lend support to a college program these are some of the Universities that are truly devoted to understanding the occupational risks of firefighting and are being health advocates for us. Big News lately...FEMA just gave Oklahoma State's Ex. Phys. and Kines. programs a grant to develop a device that will monitor the physiology of firefighters while they are in liver burn situations. This is so exciting because we will be able to break down how the heart and the rest of our body responds to all aspects and steps of firefighting. Anyway, before I get to nerdy on here, I'll send you some more info later, but check out Google Scholar :)
Thanks for the input, and I'm sorry to hear about that terrible incident in 1999. What was the date, I'll be sure to remember those brothers on that day. Do think this is something you can put in writing. I see you are in Texas and obviously talking face to face is difficult. Or maybe we can chat on the phone and I can relay some of your experience to my guys.
The FOOLS stands for the Fraternal Order Of Leathheads Society. It is a national fellowship/training group that was started several years ago in Florida. Visit www.foolsinternational.com for more information.
I'll try to send you some more links over the next few weeks. Researching FF Health can be tough if you don't have access to numerous online journals, (as I am learning more and more with my current class project), but I'll send some good ones your way when I get some time in the next few days! Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog article.
