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.

Very well written. I couldn't agree more with your statements. The problems are many, but they perpetuate and increase with every new class of recruits that are poisoned with the idea that anyone who feels unsafe has a responsibility to act and stop whatever is going on. When I came on, my instructors told me…
