The Portable Radio Analogy: A One Sided Conversation

The Portable Radio Analogy: A One Sided Conversation

Have you ever listened to radio traffic at an incident and thought to yourself “How is anyone ever supposed to respond when the IC won’t stop talking?” If someone was to transmit a MAY-DAY how would the Incident Commander even know?

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 […]
