Hey Chief,
Great seminar last week in "the Gateway City". Looking forward to when you come back for the next one.
God bless and stay safe!

Hey Chief,
I just purchased your 3rd edition handbook, and it looks great. I'm looking forward to your seminar here in September. Will you discuss the reasons why WTC 1, 2, and 7 collapsed catastrophically in your presentation? Believe it or not, there are people on our FD who believe the conspiracy theory nonsense about why those buildings collapsed.
Take care!

Good luck on your new DVD, I asked Mark Haugh to give you our Firefighter Survival DVD for your review. If you could offer a comment Pennwell could use for the back cover that would be great. We are rereleasing with each segment in WMP files for instructors and company officers to use as well as the DVD. I think you will like the format and the common scene approach we took. You have been a big influence in my career and I thank you. If you were unaware our case is going to the US Supreme Court in April. We talked about it on the phone 5 years ago. Your book was one of the smaller issues in the case. They stated that it only applied to NY. I thought that would give you a good laugh. Bobby’s March editorial will deal with the case in March.
If you would offer a comment send to thanks

Hey Chief, Hope you're doing well. Thanks for accepting my invite. Your book on FG tactics is truly one of my favorites. I hope to see you at FDIC. God bless and stay safe!

Through this group, my understanding of High-Rise tactics has grown immensly (excuse the poor spelling), and I know others have as well. For instance, in Oklahoma City we have a little over 100 High-Rises but we have very few fires in them. As our city high-rises change from mainly office highrise to residential highrise our fires in thes buildings are increasing, so what I've learned from the brothers in this group has been tremendous.

Thanks for adding me as one of your friends Chief. It would be an honor if you would check out the High-Rise Group and hopefully join the group. People from all over the country are using this group to improve their high-rise operations and I am sure your input would be extremely beneficial.

Chief, I didn't get a chance to attend when you were in Cincinnati, I hope my department took care of you. We spoke briefly at FDIC in the speakers room. I look forward to renewing our acquaintance at FDIC 2009.

I have met and seen you speak numerous times in MA and Providence R.I. I thank you for some great training and I hope retirement has been good to you.

Chief Good to see you again. Maybe we'll bring you back to the Mystic FD sometime!!

Take a look and sign up to our group we could use your input. Tactical Building Blocks & Air Management. If you search groups by most members we are list at the top.
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.

Hi Chief,
Good to see you're here. I had the pleasure of riding with your son last December and was very impressed with not only him but the way that entire area operated. I look forward to learning from you through this medium as well as others. I missed your presentation in Denver two years ago and would suggest you ask Dave about coming out again next year for Firenuggets. I hear everyone that attended really enjoyed it. Take care.

Hey Chief, welcome to the site. It's an honor to have you with us. Thanks for writing your book on fireground tactics; it's helped me as a firefighter and I count it among my favorites! God bless!
