Stockton, California Working:A Little ‘Shot in The Arm’ for the Fire Service

First-in footage at Stockton working fire.

 

Yesterday was a crappy day for the fire service, but life goes on. You can't change the past, but you can learn from it.

The next day requires you to be focused, determined and smarter than yesterday.

You owe it to the fallen, the survivors and the families.

Check the rigs, the tools and mentor the new guy.

Life's short. Pray Hard.

    In my opinion … I think this company did an exemplory job. On scene fully involved Wood structure with heavy Flames showing exposure A and B as well as 1st and 2nd floors.  They we're able to get the wet stuff on the red stuff and save this structure within 4min.  Sure they had a few minor glitches but they got the job done! truck placement was good the only major Ooops I noticed (not being on the scene) was the second team in (on ladder) failed to check to see if there was a Floor left inside the 2nd floor before entering the window.  Great Job Team!

"...if you aren’t happy where you are, many (including me) will ask what you’re doing to make a change either within the organization or within yourself.

The USFA would benefit from an overhaul in the way that they collect and disseminate data. The categories are generally broad and tend to tabulate LODD's by type rather than task. If we collected data based on fireground task performed (interior fire attack, vertical ventilation, search and rescue, VES, etc.) it paints a very different…

I usually cringe when I get quoted. I am just saying what I believe, but often what you say gets filtered through what folks want to hear. In regards to being quoted in Dave's piece here, I am not only humbled, but happy to be included in such a fine piece. If you disagree with…
