I recently picked up a new Lid and just put it in service.  I had used a Bullard LTX for over 5 years prior, but noticed that they have a tendency to crack on the back and sides of the bill.  After…Continue

FF/EMT-LP/Eng in Canyon Lake, TX.  3 volunteer departments in VA, LA, and TX.  2nd paid dept.  Best job in the world.

Was a member of an all volunteer fire department for 32 years and hung up my boots in '08. I miss it dearly, but knew it was time. My father taught me that when I first joined up. Just wish it wasn't so emotionally painful.

I am a member of the local Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service in Western Australia. I passed my practical assessment this week, I have my Bush Fire course next weekend and assuming I pass that I can go to fire calls.

It's the manliest thing I've ever done & it's great being involved with such a selfless group of people who give up so much of their own time to serve the community.

Just joined AOM and the Firefighter's group.  Still getting used to how the forums work.  Probably the farthest north Firefighter... Fairbanks, Alaska.

One other thing, someone should write to get RED ADAIR featured on AOM. You can't get more manly than he was! Gutsy, technically-brilliant, good speaker, and unique.....

Hey I just joined AOM and the fire fighting group.
I'm not a fire-fighter, Im a fire protection engineer. This past fall, I for professional development took a 1-week maritime firefighting course. All hands on, real fires, high-rise machine rooms, industrial fires, etc. Lots of fun, and I will take more hands stuff.

For shure the experience made me a better designer, and can communicate better with the AHJ's.
