Plan of Attack: Winter is here. Our operations will be extended due to the weather. Arrival time between units will be longer, which means help is delayed. This translates to a more intelligent approach to our operations. Ventilation may have to be delayed until a line is in place. This may take longer due to frozen hydrants or other water problems. Fires may be more advanced due to delayed notification. In winter move quickly but more cautiously, slippery surfaces. Prepare by having extra shovels on the rig, especially if sending members to a flat roof for vent. Stay warm. Always..Stay Sharp and Safe.
Firehouse Expo, Nashville TN. What a great experience for 3 years in a row! There were many firefighters for many departments. The venue was wonderful. My class on "Top Floor Fires"went very well. I had the privilage to meet brothers and sisters from around the country . The attendees in my class made it a better session by all their comments and thoughts on the class material. To those who were there, THANK YOU... I look forward to next year in Nashville. A really great city, with great people.

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.
