I'll be happy to give my 2 cents on these issues. We have done some extensive work here in Sacramento on standardizing our RIC (RIT) deployment and have stressed firefighter survival. I will look at the page you referenced and give some of my thoughts. I am heading to a two week vacation but will check in and get back to ya. Thanks for inviting me in!
I'm on the left coast so I'll try to keep it traditional. I'll try not to talk about spray nozzles vs. smooth and I'll stay away from the truck/engine debates. I need to, I drive a desk. Take care!
Hey Frank, I like your comment under areas of expertise. I may know a few of the Brothers up in New Haven. I started out as a volunteer with the Wilton Vol. FD in 1983 and then to the military. After the the first Gulf War I volunteered in Noroton for a while (GREAT volunteer department). I would be honored to contribute wherever I can.
Frank, Thanks for the invite to this site, unfortunetly I can't teach this saturday I had previous plans, The good news is that I think the instructor thing is going well, I went to the state yesterday and the guy said he will get back to me within the week and it looks pretty good. Just need to take the test and he will wave the fee and the class. So I'll keep u up to date with everything. Also if you are not doing anything tonight we are haveing a cigar club meeting at the owl club in NH if you'd like to come.

The work you have done on FireOps, Smoke Showing, Last chance filter and all of your tireless efforts to make our profession a safer place are to be commended-
Well done and keep up the good work brother,..
Thanks for the invite. I'll try and add constructive comment where I can. I'm only concerned about having that Marcarelli guy around- oh sorry Matt, didn't see you there!
Be safe, maybe we can get the CT guys together at June School or something.
