Hey. Do you know that you're on here twice? Anyway, were you and Todd ever able to perfect your backdraft simulator from the recruit class a couple of years ago? If so, I would like to here about it sometime.

Please allow me to invite you to the group called Unique HazMat Incidents. I will be presenting this at 2009 FDIC and would love to hear some of your thoughts. We are currently talking about some real interesting issues.

I hope that I never have to see you under "work" circumstances but there is a tremendous about of electronics throughout our two offices. If you do I'll be the short guy with a fire cap on. It keeps down the glare from my bald head...

I don't know if I will make either of the two schools you mentioned as I have hit the free classes pretty hard since the first of the year and attended Jasper last month. If I do I'll try to look you up.

Be Safe, and tell Steve White I said hello.

Hey Chad,

We are neighbors sort of. While my fire house is no where close to you my work is on City Center Dr in Carmel. I might even see you there on a tour. We have been bring the Police and Fire depts through so that they can see what we do and the layout of the place.

Maybe I will see you there, looking forward to meeting you again.

Be Safe
