As I sit here writing this post, we're about 36 hours after the tragic fire in Bronx NY that so sadly took 12 lives. Most of us cannot even imagine losing one family remember or even one neighbor. Yet, one family lost four members, a brave soldier from our Armed Forces, home on Christmas leave, lost his life trying to rescue others, plus another seven poor souls.

As the title of this post indicates, we all must evolve in some manner to maintain and hopefully, improve our existence. Yes, we can be reticent to change; OK, we can be down right stubborn about it! In the end however, we usually find that the change is for the better. Not always, but most of the time. So, we too will be making a change; one that we believe will be better, not only for us, but for our listeners of our podcast, "5-Alarm Task Force."
Just over 1-1/2 years ago, I planted a "seed." What did I "plant?" It was my podcast, "5-Alarm Task Force." Although I was only able to serve in the fire service for eight, short years before an injury forced me to leave, I have never let the fire service leave me. Since 1985, I have tried to stay up-to-date with the growth and evolution in firefighting, leadership, funding, education, etc. One way or another, I kept pace.
