Brian, happy new year! What type of aerial do you have (mid-mount or rear-mount)? We're looking into a rear mount b/c we're probably going to get a FEMA grant for $750,000 towards a new one. Right now we have a mid-mount. I think I've seen rear-mounts in PFD, but no sure. Give me your thoughts regardless. Thanks!

Just found you on this website. Nice to see a NE Ohio guy here. Hope all is settling down a little w/ PFD and the city. We (Euclid) know what you're going through. Our situation isn't any better. Give me a call if you have any questions 216-374-5185 or C-platoon in Euclid 216-289-8415. Take care.

Thanks for your kind words and positive feedback regarding my work at FDIC.

Stay Low,

Your Brother in Denver,

Brother.... Great to meet you and kudos for grabbing a front row seat...

I cannot tell you how impressed I was by the enthusiasm and warmth of firefighters from your area and I felt at home immediately...

I hope those conversations you had with your fellow firefighters turns into concrete action to ensure that no Ohio firefighters aspyxiate or perish due to smoke related cancer. Only leaders like yourself can make that happen.

God bless you bro...
