What every firefighter needs to know

What every firefighter needs to know

Firefighters function together despite differences, beliefs, or personal preferences. We are able to put aside our differences and function as one towards a common goal of serving our fellow man. Take a team of firefighters who have never met and place them on an apparatus and it is amazing how quickly they can come together as a team. Yet, in the midst of personal conflict or troubles we seem ‘statistically’ incapable of helping ourselves. This is not to say that […]

The Be-attitudes of Brotherhood By Brother Stone Be attitude #2 Be selfless- This is probably the most important mark of true brother. It is the very essense of being a firefighter.

Impending Flashover

Impending Flashover

As firefighters, we are trained to recognize the signs of an impending flashover. Rapidly increasing temperatures, a non-tenable environment, thick turbulent smoke and then it happens… Consider the imagery. A firefighter under significant stress begins to rapidly change their behavior, they become difficult to be around or remove themselves from any form of camaraderie, and any attempt to go near them is met with turbulent angry behavior. This is a warning. This individual is lashing out at you not because […]

Death and how it affects us

Death and how it affects us

Death and How it Affects Us- As firefighters, we witness death on a regular basis. Some even become numb to the effects of being near to it so often.

Brotherhood-A Re-introduction:

Brotherhood-A Re-introduction:

A Re-Introduction: Let us begin… There once was a noble profession known as firefighting and then those who loved it most fought for it the least. Their once unstoppable passion for the calling was replaced with the search for fame, recognition, and authority. Division replaced unity, bitterness replaced brotherhood, the calling became a career, and firefighters became employees. All the while politics and policy makers saw this as an opportunity to continue to divide us. For if we are divided […]
