Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls.

As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.

Not too bad here. Busy taking a Staff & Command class that runs until October. Free time is getting short doing class work and a research paper along with all the other stuff. All in all though, I'm just peachy. ttl
