Plan of Attack: Hello troops, it's been a while. Summer is here, so hydrate. If you are thirsty you are already dehydrated. Drink prior to being thirsty. Also, BBQ's are in full swing about now. Most fires occurr between 4p-9p. So for your community tell them some of the dangers. Like propane is heavier then air so it stays close to the groound and will find an open basement window and an ignition source. Keep BBQ's at least 6 feet from your siding to avoid any problems. Always..Stay Sharp and Safe.
Firehouse Expo will be in October, in Nashville TN. I will be teaching Large Area Search, Tools and Tactics on Saturday Oct. 22. I am very excited at being chosen to teach again this year! I look forward to seeing many friends and of course making new friends in the Fire Service.

Here are some Fire Prevention topics we cover in our Class:
Safety Tips:* Place a heat detector in your attic. Smoke detectors
are not appropriate.
* Close the door to the fire area.
* Use an Extinguish with an ABC type protection. Use it
in a side to side motion, Do Not use it all, if possible.
* When using candles place them in a small bowl of
water or sand. Keep them 12" away from anything
that can ignite.
* Dryer fires, turn off gas supply, then use water or a
dry chem extinguisher.
* Have an evacuation plan for your family.

Legacy recommends that you to go to Firehouse.com and view"WTC In Their Own Words". This book tells the story of 9/11, from firefighters on scene. I was honored to be on TV with the late Chief Harvey Eisner, former Editor of Firehouse Magazine, to discuss his book. It is a diagram of that day. See the TV interviews on the Firehouse website. And remember.... Never Forget...
Legacy recommends FF. Jason Brezler's company at www.LeadershipUnderFire.vpweb.com.
