PROBLEMS

What is happening with fire  training today? I notice nearly every week we lose a firefighter on scene, is it communication? training? Safety on fire ground ?  Are instructors really qualified? are Building codes re: roof structures being violated?  Wall collapsing on firefighters ?

A forgotten hero of WW2 to get his cartoons google his name. "William H. Mauldin"

Willie & JO

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…
