Thanks for the message. It is a very sad time in the YFD. Fortunately, Lt. Murray and Ff. Kanick are out of the hospital and recovering at home.
Stay safe,

Hey bro', the website is looking good! Just finished a weekend of burning with Ray Mac, G-Ron and the Wichita boys. Going to Wichita this weekend for some more training, fun and fellowship. Heard through the grapevine you and your brother are really delivering some great training to the masses....keep it up!
Stay safe,

Very good. We will be there with bells on. We just did a weekend combined ops class in Canada this weekend (in the photos section of this site) and we will have our photos published up on our "past classes" area of our website tonight with more coming this week.

Great bunch of Instructors, I was lucky to have you guys come to Oakville Ontario and to some "Back 2 Basics" Skills with fellow Canadian Andrew Brassard.

Another drill from Andrew Brassard on the site.

This drill discusses size-up differences between cheap case-hardened padlocks and high-security padlocks. Tips for forcing the cheap padlocks using only a screw-driver are discussed.

The drill is located here: [url][/url]

Once again, Andrew Brassard from Milton, Ontario has posted a great forcible entry "Tools of the Trade" type drill on our "Online Drills" area.

Head over and check it out:

If you are interested, just below Andrew's drill, you can see a few photos from the Hands-On Ladder Company Operations class that we did for Ankeny, IA in late May.

In the coming months, we will have a portable ladder drill video from Jamie Morelock of Toledo, OH as well as some stuff from Chad Cox of Wichita, KS.
