Firefighters open chat room for serious learning and sharing without fear

It is critically important that when we see a video like this that we do not judge those operating at the scene under stress. Rather, it is important that we seek to understand why things like this happen. The explanations are not as simple as lack of training, lack of experience, poor policies, or incompetence.

Brain science offers some amazing insight as to why things like this happen and what we can do to prevent things like this from happening in our own departments. Do not judge. Be a student.

Follow Dr. Gasaway on Twitter and subscribe to his monthly news letter.

I was posting his materials at Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighters Foundation website for everyone to learn for free what his teachings have to offer but I can no longer share with everyone because he wanted others to pay for a membership and has cast me out of the group.

Sorry, but the policy of my company is to give what is needed to everyone who wants it at no cost. I feel the safety of others should transcend profiteering but I will do my best to try to get everyone headed in the right direction as best as possible.

Be well and stay safe everyone.
