Firefighter Netcast. Listen Up

firefighter_netcast_banner

The premier broadcast of Firefighter Netcast will be discussing line of duty deaths. In the little bit of time between idea conception and maiden flight, Fire Critic and Fire Daily have put together what promises to be a intelligent program, even if it didn’t include me. And as a disclaimer, if it bombs, I’ll take the blame; give the guys a second chance and listen to the next program when it comes out.

You can go to their site for more details on how to listen and participate. Below is the information I will be referencing to. Additional posts on the other half of the 2009 line of duty deaths are awaiting answers to questions I asked of certain individuals. Rather than deliver an immediate post with unknowns, I prefer to wait for definitive answers.

    Thanks for your kind words, Bill. Your input made the difference. When we have insightful firefighters speaking to interested firefighters, change is sure to result. Rhett and I are thrilled to have had you as part of a panel of noted fire service leaders to share in our maiden voyage.

    Just for the record, Rhett would be Les Nessman in the photo above…..

    What is that WKRP? I read about that on wikipedia!!! Did I mention I was born in Cincy!

    Thanks so much for joining us! Your input was much appreciated.

    I enjoyed talking to everyone.
    I was the class clown.
    The “round table” discussion definitely widened by viewpoints.
    Thanks to everyone for that.
    Hope to see you all at FDIC.

    It was a very good first program, with one of the most stimulating discussions that the fire service has, line of duty death information. I wish I was better prepared than how I came across, but this was a first for me. The caller and chat room input is a good feature that I hope you guys can build upon more. I’m interested into seeing how FEMS bloggers can take this to the next level, with training and educational content. Naum, Traditions, and some of our EMS bloggers could make the adaptation quickly. I’m looking forward to the next one.

Dave i agree with your whole post. However the one thing I'm not experiencing or seeing is the over safetyifcation. While i hear words spoke about being safe when possible, but not sacrificing service for safety. If anything, i see firefighters more aggressive than when i started many years back due to the increased protection…

Well done. You make some awesome points. In regards to the "numbers".....(and kind of backing up your thought of changing tactics), we have often wondered why there is so much emphasis on RIT and the RIT/Industrial complex. I'm on Chicago and have worked in the Chicago Suburbs for almost 20 years. We've seen the advent…

“Over safetyification”... Dave, that is the best description of what those who want to prevent us from doing the job want to do to the job.
