Hey brother...

Just chatted with Raul a few days back. He is doing well at Ladder 6 in the Queen Anne area of Seattle. Still actively involved in doing training and host of other stuff.

Are you headed to FDIC this year? Grab ahold of me somewhere there if you are...

I'd love to come up your way if you think the troops would be interested. Give me a shout and we'll what we can do.

Keep rockin' bro

Funny you should ask. I was assigned to Central Firehouse, Engine 1. However starting next day I am going to Engine 4/Medic 4. Engine 1 is the busiest engine in the city and I will miss that firehouse (especially meals when everyone, upto 18 guys, all ate together). 4's is a great house with a great company. 4's also catches more fires and its location is in a rougher part of town, which allows for more legit medical runs.

Its going to be different but I am down with it.

We learned all of these breaches from our FEMA Structural Collapse Rescue Course. They were all in our manuals and the slide shows.

I work for the Federal Fire Department Hawaii which provides the fire service for all of the federal installations (not including Hickam AFB, yet) on the island of Oahu. We have places like Pearl Harbor, Schofield Barracks, Wheeler Army Airfield, Tripler, Marine Corp Base Hawaii (Kaneohe), among others... It's funny because I have always wanted to visit your neck of the woods on one of those Alaskan cruises. People always ask were do guys from paradise go on vacation? Would you be interested in trading t-shirts and patches? Let me know... Take it easy Bro -Aloha

He's awesome and I'm blessed to have someone with such a passion for what he does and what he believes in...kinda puts things into perspective. I'm really excited to have him around and be able to learn from him.
