2nd Ed. First Due Blog CarnivalCall for Posts

The second edition of the First Due Blog Carnival is approaching. This edition will be hosted here and published on 30 April. For background on the blog carnival subject brush up on the facts here and at Fire Critic. As stated during the first edition, you don’t even need a blog of your own to participate; just find a contributor who will post your submission.


The subject of this second edition is “Influential Fire Reports”. What fire report, or reports, have had the greatest impact on you personally and professionally as a firefighter? This report can be of firefighter fatalities, close calls, near-misses and even fire or structural behavior. The report can be a federal, state, department or independent investigation, no matter so long as it is one that made a significant impact in the way you now think and operate as a firefighter or fire officer. It could also be a report that you have used, quite often, to teach younger members of your department or shift.

In your submission be sure to include a link to the report, personal reflections as to why it is important to you, and the educational or behavioral factors that influenced a change inside you.

The deadline for submissions is midnight 29 April. Send me a link to where your post is hosted. The second edition will be published here on Friday 30 April 2010.

I think this information analysis is needed and should be more widely used. BUT.......I have an issue with the stratify ins terms "career", "industrial" and "volunteer". They all are firefighters......period!

Holding 1&1: First Due Engine Officer Discussion
Erik, first off, I apologize for the delayed response. I'll keep this short and simple. I think I would have done the same thing as you. I'm not much for what some would consider calling a transitional attack, but in this case, certainly it seems to apply. Call it what you will, if the first…
