Feel Like Taking The Stairs?

Put all that ‘brotherhood’ and ‘never forget’ talk where your feet are.


The people behind the scenes of the 9-11 Memorial Stair Climbs are looking for you to take the stairs at Firehouse Expo.

On Thursday, 21 July from 2:00 to 4:00, 343 participants will “walk for the 343″ at the Baltimore Hilton.

The rub is, they need roughly 200 more participants to make the “343″.

If Rhett and Willie can do it, well then, you have no excuse. I won’t try and guilt-trip you into it. I won’t mention that the benefit you’ll feel afterward will be far better than any sticker or t-shirt. I won’t tell you that you’d look a lot better being seen doing the stair climb instead of being seen trying to shove some deep fried meal down your gullet and sucking on a extra large diet soda.

But I will tell you that it would be pretty lame for them to not have 343 participants.

If you feel led, sign up. If not, find someone who might want to and encourage them.

What is Experience?
You're correct Ed. What did we do with that experience? Did we take as many lessons from as we could or did we simply file it away as a run in the logbook. Thank you, Bill

What is Experience?
Excellent post. The same question may be framed for other than working on the nozzle (e.g., if delivering pump operator training). In addition, even if you went to a lot of fires on the nozzle or as the first in company officer, what did you do with that experience? Reflection and integration of the experience…

Bill.. I agree with Tony C. The situations we respond to sometimes reuire that we tune and tweak SOPs and SOGs "on the fly" in order to complete the tasks given. Fire doesn't care what is stated in our SOPs/SOGs.
