I do my podcast for you - my brothers and sisters in the fire service. Today's society is so different than when I grew up. Sometimes, that makes our job tougher. Just look what we have to do to help our communities understand how vital and precious sprinklers are in, at the very least, every new residential structure; not too mention commercial buildings too! And our jobs have changed drastically in the 30-plus years since an injury took me off the line. We used to be fire departments that ran with an ambulance if they needed extra help. Now, WE run the rescues and EMS calls and wonder when and if a fire call will come in.
Some of you have asked, "Where have you been?"
To answer that question, I've been here doing everything necessary to produce "5-Alarm Task Force," which includes, sending out invitations and corresponding with guests. Not every guest can book the next podcast, so I have to be flexible, as they are giving of their precious time to share with you and me!
Additionally, you may have seen some changes here on the website. And there are more to come. We have some big announcements coming up very soon. However, it's always best to have everything in place before making a too-early announcement, or as my late father used to say, "Please engage brain before putting your mouth in gear!"
