Hi Gerald ,

Would you mind taking a look at my 9/11 picture album to see if you or your collegues might recognise any of the fire fighters I photographed at Ground Zero back in 01 when i was working for the New York Post. I am heading to New York in July and would like to make contact with them. Any help with contact details would be greatly appreciated

Cheers mate. Nathan Edwards, Australia email contact:

Chief Tracy,
Where can i get something in writing about the recommended flow rate for today's fires being at least 150gpm? This is for justification reasons, so it needs to be a non-bias type document. If you can help let me know.

Thanks and BE SAFE!!

Chief, I had the pleasure of hearing you speak at a seminar in New Jersey a few years back. You made many of us in that room better firefighters and I wanted to say thanks. Hope to have the opportunity to hear you speak again soon.

Thanks Chief,

Hope to see you at Indy, and look forward to the results and data when they come out. If what you found was that earth shattering, it will definitely prove to change the fire service for the better! Thanks for all your work on this, and thanks for the info.

Welcome my old friend and a very blessed Easter, you your family and your brothers are in my prayers. I had a wonderful conversation with Peter and I think he is wonderful. Also Bagger is being hosted in Tulsa the first Friday and Saturday of May. We are keeping it small to encourage better discussion. Yours Bobby

I translated your High Rise articles in Fire Engineering for publication in the Spanish fire fighters assiciation magazine, FUEGO, several years back. While we don't have 60 + story moles here, Spain does have Nº's 1 and 15 in the listing of hi rise buildings to population around the world; Benidorm and Valladolid. I have used some of you considerations in training here, all very positive.

Good morning Chief,

I've heard about some of your studies conducted lately and am interested in some info...can you post some of your findings on the 1403 Compliant Training group sometime? Lt. McCormack filled me in on some of the events, but you may be able to shed more light on the subject, especially the LFT highrise training. Thanks in advance.

I'm sure you don't remember me but I attended the High-Rise confrence in Chicago a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed your session. Lots has changed here in OKC because of what we learned there. Thanks.
