Yes, anytime I'm able to help with TI questions I'd be glad to. I told Jack that if anyone backs out last minute again to call me and I'll try to help out with RIT. You may have to keep me focused on the FA tactics though. JF

Are you kidding? I never shut up about the saws... Get out and use them, That is the best thing to do. Take them apart and put them back together. Read and follow the owners manual. Etc...

I wrote a couple things about the chainsaws, but Hands-on is the best. Send me your E-mail and I'll send you a copy of what I have on the subject.

Get something good to cut up and I'll come over.

Hi Barry

Thanks for the kind words. I did retire from Providence, and am now with the NFPA as Director of Public Fire Protections. I'll still be around presenting here and there.

Stay safe

Hey Barry, most Tech Rescue Disciplines are either 40 or 80 hr programs. Refreshers and Annual Education are scheduled throughout the year to keep guys up to date...

Hey Barry
Good fire 2.5 sty wood framed old farm house. Fire started on the b side wrap around farmers porch from ashes, into the porch ceiling wrapped the house. The original rafters poked through the siding and were attached to the frame of the house, they cut the original rafters out when they installed the new roof over the porch but did not cover the holes, so when the fire entered the ceiling of the porch it also entered EVERY bay on the left and front of the house. Two alarms later here we come!! Good fight and I have a ton of great pics
