IT IS HARD TO GET A PERSON TO UNDERSTAND A THING WHEN THEIR SALARY DEPENDS ON THEIR NOT UNDERSTANDING IT.

Americans, you know what needs to be done and what it will "cost" any and all of us who try. But you also know we owe everything we enjoy in our free land…

Somebody is watching

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…

FIREFIGHTER SUICIDES

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.

MEDAL OF VALOR

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.

FIRE AND ICE

For me as I look back on the calls I responded to, this is in my opinion the most challenging condition to deal with-below freezing temperatures. 

I feel most of you members have been here so I post this for the newcomers and web surfers in the hope they can come to understand that their local Fire Department has greater challenges than they might have guessed. It is not all "polishing trucks and drinking beer".…

HOLLYWOOD vs. REALITY FOR FIREFIGHTERS

I have not seen this flick (and will not) but I feel I may understand the negative criticism I read about it at the store website where it was being offered for sale.

It is a fact that movie goers wish to be entertained so the subject matter must do that, even at the expense of the topic being covered fading out of sight. 

I do feel that a movie need be made that could shed some light on the dangers of our…

WOMEN IN THE MILITARY... WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

P1

What do you feel will be the biggest obstacle for women if they are to be in combat units? Should they be in all female units to be deployed separately or should they be simply offered only the highly skilled responsibilities such as pilots, armored division engineers etc.

STATION 13 OTTAWA CITY CREW-PROFESSIONAL-PROUD-DEDICATED

My day going out on calls with the crew from station 13 afforded me the opportunity to ride along with the team on the pumper for half of a day and was given a chance to see how a city crew operates on calls.

Chief John deHooge set it all up for me and as all of you who know him might expect, he made it fun for me. First off he assured me that I would be afforded a ride to the station, that is, he would send someone to pick me up at the Ottawa Sheridan so I would not need to spend my…
