Jim,

It was true Honor and privilege working with you at the funerals for or fallen brothers in Kilgore. Your commitment to honoring these brothers shows your dedication to never forgetting a fallen firefighter. If you ever need anything in the future give me a call and we will be there. Hope to see you at the Symposium Lewisville is hosting, if not me then some of our Honor Guard members will be there.

Brother, 55 to me is t-shirt, shorts and sun tan weather while drinking cold beer and out fishing. We had 55 below the other day and a few brothers were out working a job on the West side. Actually being a frozenhosehead instead of literally is no fun. So can my buddies...that would be you and Chief Lasky give a Texas heeve ho to some warm weather to your big brother Alaska? We sure could use it. Maybe you could see if Rick could fit you in his luggage when he comes up here this year in July when it's actually 80's and 90's and we can do some fishing. Oh and I'm getting into learning how to play the bagpipes too so if you guys have any practice chanter sheet music or online that you could show me I'd appreciate it.

Stay safe brother and warm...LOL

Hey Jimbo...Just a word of encouragement...Any company will be better having you on the roster. It is an honor to have someone of your caliber on the board, and we look forward to having you.

Yea, I missed being able to get over there. Trying to figure out where we are at with the new responsibilities and all. I saw a short you tube video performance in front of the hall that was pretty cool.
Hope it went well and I look forward to seeing you guys soon...

Thanks Jim -

That's great to hear that we're not as crazy as we thought we were. LOL

I'd greatly appreciate it if you could send me any supporting materials from the symposium.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for getting back with me. Great plug for the Chief's book. I've been meaning to get it anyway. Take care....

Thanks for the kind words. If I could guess on your friends from Clearwater it would be Doug Swartz and Pete Georgantas? I was the Special Ops Chief responsible for the Honor Guard and a member of the Honor Guard. I've got a question for you? Chief Lasky mentioned a dedication program for new apparatus. Any chance I could get a copy? We are putting some in service and wanted to start this tradition. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you mean Seminole in Pinellas County, I am 45mins south. I'll look into the name, it doesn't ring a bell, but I am awful with names. I reconize people and just say "I know you" :)

I am a member of the Terre Haute Fire Dept honor guard. we currently have 5 members, and wear the Departments Class A's with the only thing different is red shoulder cords, and an honor guard badge are added. we are currently trying to build with our new administration, we had almost 0 support from the last administration. We are looking to a lot of other departments right now, trying to come up with some procedures, and rule for what type of funerals get what services. its great to hear a little about other departments.

Please do Jim. Let me know how it goes.

Lead them back to the blog to leave some feedback.

I'd love to attend the symposium but don't currently have the means to do so.

Best of luck. Stay in touch.

Stay safe. Train often.

I did too Jim -

I posted the same blog on Firefighter Nation and received 8 comments out of 10,000 members. So, I'm not too surprised at the results here but disappointed nonetheless.

Here's the original blog and comments:

Jim, we could use your input for our group, check it out and sign up Tactical Building Blocks & Air Management
This group will focus on aggressive interior firefighting. We will address tactics that increase your chance of not getting jammed up and cover what actions to undertake if you do.We will cover some big issues as well as small tactical tips

Be Safe,
