NEW ON THE JOB?
I've seen many If you are new or relatively new to the fire a rookie come onto
the job, especially over the past few years, and act like they've been there 15
years. So how do you act and what is the right way to make a good
impression? Well, take a read of the article below. It was printed by the
"Nozzlehead" in Fire-Rescue magazine. It is the BEST article I have ever read
when it comes to how new firefighters should act. If you aren't doing the
majority of the items in this list, you might be doing things wrong. (He has 49
tips to follow)

reason, but otherwise you should always have access.
The site does not provide for a player I can post here on
the website, but stay tuned.

Here is a link to the new feed:

Why Is It Important To Train On Pump Operations ?
This is why....
....."We know there was a delay of 5 minutes of pressurized water to the fire line at the side
door, which also delayed entry into the building. The cause of delay was an incorrect
pumping procedure," said Kenny Clemens, president of the West Platte Fire Board. The
board asked the Riverside, Missouri, Fire Captain Dave Johnson to review the video to

the apparatus, and the error occurred," said Capt. Johnson, who says that by his
assessment, it took over eight minutes for water to be put on the fire.
