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.

If Not Us, Then Who?
Chief Ayotte, Thank you, not only for your kind words but your informative response. You had stated that it was a judgement call as to whether or not the initial arriving company officer conducted a quick primary search on marked vacant buildings. I'm curious, would that same officer face disciplinary actions if that were the…

Gabe- This was a personal pet peeve of mine when I was on the Truck. All you have to do is read the instructions for Warthog blade care and a little pride in your equipment. I always took a trash bag and laid it flat; sprayed WD-40 all over it. Laid the blade on it…

Bill... your article is definitely something that should be brought up in every firehouse, whether it be in a formal class setting or an informal firehouse kitchen table discussion. I was my Department's liaison to and a member of the City's Code Enforcement Impact Team. Part of what we did was marking abandoned properties with…

Ric Jorge: Brother, if you could grow a mustache like mine we would look like twins. I had the opportunity to teach with Eric "Tatter"Hankins, E.J. Mascaro, Bobby Haas and Rusty Ricker. Your name came up and the success that you have realized with the SIT program and enlightenment it has provided to America's Firefighters.…

When moving up through the chain of command, one better learn the politics of the department and community without playing politics.
