Here's to all our young brothers!!! Trying to find their way in a sea of ambiguity, misinformation, jealousy and apathy! Holdfast, little brother, HOLDFAST! If you do not keep moving forward, who will?
Hey Brother: Just luck of the draw. The other two shifts haven't had anything but EMS runs and lots of 'em.
I'm plum wore out. Between late night calls on duty and workin hard at home I'm nearly loco. The fires have been small, but because of the types of buildings involved, they were fairly significant. The Fairbanks bunch are fast moving and aggressive on quick knock downs. But when we get big fire, we tend to miss step a bit because we don't get them as often and are not quick to transition.
Do not fret yourself, hectic isn't quite the word for it. We we're tapped out to a 5th floor fire at one of the derelict high rises in Fairbanks the night I spoke with you, had an MCI drill the next day and I spent the entire one day between playing with my kids and getting ready to duck hunt, re-order books for a class coming up, plan the next FOOLS mtg, etc............ I can relate.
AWE Brother! Take a look at you make the call in the group, read the topic and then read the comments and then let me know what you think. Your not the only one that has said about the screw lose! If HazMat freaks you out wait till you see what the job of none hazmat guys are! Todd

I got your email earlier today. I feel your pain Brother. Every young gung ho fireman has faced the same issues when they started. I will reply in more depth in my email to you. Just Keep the Faith and Do The Right Thing, and you'll be fine.
