Dear Friend,

Please allow me to invite you to the group called HazMat Placards to Success. This group will allow firefighters to discuss a step by step process for a Hazardous Materials response. From the firefighter to the hazmat technician. The first step has been posted in the group, with many more steps to come.

Thank you!

Hey Art,

Good to hear from you! Yup, I'll be in Indy all week. I'm teaching, but I don't know which day yet. No matter what, though, I'll be at opening ceremonies and the Brotherhood Bash with the pipes & drums. I'm trying to talk Maria into coming up to play with the band. We'll see... Stop by our FOOLS table at the Bash and say hi.

Thanks for joining CSF (Common Sense Firefighting). It's a Fire ground decision making and leadership group. Join in any discussion at any time. There are always some good ones going. How many members on the engine and how many does your dept get on the first due alarm?

Hope to see you again out there...unfortunalely, I am sitting out this year from doing a classroom presentation. I was asked to change my topic, and I guess they did not like my new topic. I'll be out there non the less.
