I once had the opportunity to see a building slated for a controlled burn in my town. Actually it was right next door to my home so I had a front row seat.
It was decided by the volunteer fire department top officers to burn the whole thing as it stood. The building was an old creamery so it was very large and dry as…Continue
I have been able to be a positive force in the lives of so many people who were in need over the many years as a Firefighter and as a long distance truck driver. I have never looked for the opportunities to be helpful because my life was difficult enough to handle so I was spread pretty thin already. But if ever I was called to duty as a Volunteer Firefighter I was willing to drop whatever was my previous charge and go.…Continue
Willie & JO
He meant so much to the millions of Americans who fought in World War II, and to those who had waited for them to come home. He was a kid cartoonist for Stars and Stripes, the military newspaper; Mauldin's drawings of his muddy, exhausted, whisker-stubble infantrymen Willie and Joe were the voice of truth about what it was like on the front lines. …

I have been promoting many Firefighter organizations over the years, (which I was either a…Continue
My name is Chaplain D*** Phelps. I have been Chaplain for a combined department in Indialantic, Forida for seven years. They told me that if I wanted to be a Fire Chaplain I needed to take the Fire I course. So, at 65 years old I completed Fire I and passed the certification test in Florida. I have found that I really love being involved in the Fire Service.

Oh my GOD! I can not believe the stuff men must put up with just to earn a wage... even if it is 35 cents on a dollar more than women make! Can you see a woman doing this stuff?! Not in a million years!!! They would have taken this company to the supreme court and had it brought up to safe standards or shut down. We are the only one's strong enough to work in a death trap like this and still have a smile on our face and a joke or two for our fellow employees. …Continue

There are little eyes upon you. And they're watching night and day:
There are little ears that quickly take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager to do anything you do, and a little one who's dreaming of the day they'll be like you.
You're the little children's idol. You're the wisest of the wise.
In their little minds about you, no suspicions ever rise.
They believe in you devoutly, hold all that you say and do.
There are wide eyed…Continue
Click on the link to follow a discussion about an issue that may effect someone you know. I have some thoughts about Firemen and suicide on this post that may sound critical but believe me this is something we all must "be there for the other guy" if it could be happening to one of our own.

WOMEN CORRECTIONS OFFICER WITH THE RIGHT STUFF!
Of the many honored with the medal of valor this woman stands ten feet tall. She executed a textbook move like clockwork and followed procedure perfectly. Not many women or men would have had the level headedness and courage to subdue an assailant like she did.
