On a side note, Stephen Walsh captures more than Boston fires. The time he doesn’t spend roaming the suburbs for working fires he devotes to being President of the International Fire Photographers Association. Chances are there is someone in your department, or buffing your calls, who is good with a camera and composition. Let them know about the IAFP.

As far as seeking help from an EAP, I did take advantage of my community's EAP 8 years into my career. I was heading down the road to a separation/divorce after I got promoted…

I suspect these new tactics are all related to the NFPA standard that came out a few years ago recommending higher manpower on apparatus than the authorities having jurisdiction were prepared to implement. For the 30+ years that I've been fighting fires, UL and NIST have been using the data that they gained by setting…

Am I missing the old SSLEEVES-OCD pneumonic??? seems that one. It addressed alot of the things we have to think of, and the new Slicers is something that I think in right circumstances and construction would make sense, but at other times might be completely useless. I have watched and read alot of the NIST…
