That would be greatly appreciated, we are obviosly starting with the basics but like i said it is hard to hit all of the important points. we also have two houses that we use for our training that we are able to smoke up. Thanks again

we could use your input in our Tactical Building Blocks group. We are on the side under featured groups.
This group will focus on aggressive interior firefighting. We will address tactics that increase your chance of not getting jammed up and cover what actions to undertake if you do.We will cover some big issues as well as small tactical tips
