A Nickel(back)’s Worth of Firefighting

A light post for your Friday. Enjoy, or pick it apart.


Personally, I’m not a big fan of the whole music/firefighting video genre, but in this case this one was well done.

“Onboard camera. SDFD Truck 1 and Truck 11 forcing entry, completing primary search and assisting Engine 1 advance 2 1/2″ attack lines. Fire was knocked down with no damage to either adjacent business.”

    just wondering why y’all didn’t make a two triangle cuts on the door instead of two vertical cuts and what i would assume was a horizontal cut as well? On a side note absolutely LOVE the American Flags on the turnouts!!!

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.

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…

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