WHAT NOT TO DO WITH POWER TOOLS

Cut the end of my finger off... they sewed it back on as if they were fixing an old shoe but I heal up well so now everything is okay ! 

I was making the tool chests in the picture when my cabinetmakers cordless power saw "kicked back" and cut right through the fingernail and end of my middle finger of the left hand.

The PA at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney Nebraska sewed it back on by stitching right through the remaining fingernail ! What a "hack"…

FIRST RULE WHEN THE BUILDING YOU ARE IN IS BURNING

I have recently been exposed to a training program designed to help me train others about what to do in the event of a fire in the home. It seemed to be practical as far as what would be needed if the person had special medical or physical problems…

IF YOU TRULY CARE, YOU WILL ACT FIRST AND THINK ABOUT IT LATER.

One clear day in Kearney Nebraska a retired Firefighter, who still listened to his department radio, heard a call go out for a vehicle fire at Brown Trucking Company on the east end of town. It…

THEY WERE SMALL...UNDERFUNDED....ILL-EQUIPPED AND THEY SAVED A NEIGHBORS CHILD

MEMORIES OF A JOB WELL DONE..........

THE CONDITIONS:

These brave Firemen and Paramedic had equipment so old and so few that the state fire marshal refused to hold a certification class at their department. But they proudly faced all the varied types of incidents with the practiced precision and confidence…

Dashboard for Incident Commanders

I'm designing a dashboard for Incident Commanders to use for enhanced situational awareness during emergencies. 

Fires spread rapidly, leaving victims with very little time to make phone calls, gather valuables or in some cases, exit the building. In as little as two minutes a fire can become life-threatening. Fire officers arrive as soon as they can and use standard operating procedures to effectively manage the incident scene, save lives and extinguish the fire.

From my…

Read this stuff and be honest, have you ever felt this way about what we have done as Firefighters? Have you ever become dependent on any stress relief systems that may have resulted in an unwanted behavior?…

THE GREAT DESTROYER.... LAWS THAT DO NOT APPLY TO EVERY CITIZEN EQUALLY

There are many ways to lose your life, property and future. So many ways are provided to anyone who can pay to destroy their life. Drugs that were developed to perform miracles that would make a suffering human free of the burden of symptoms that are debilitating, are instead abused to relieve a symptom of having too much of everything, except the one thing needed for peace of…
