Hosting TV crews from everywhere at our DRC

It’s great to share the stories of survivors and employees here at FL / FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Marathon.

Glad to host WOODTV news crews from Michigan today.

Dauphin flight during Oshkosh 2016

Love seeing this video of a Dauphin flight at Oshkosh – thanks to the USCG Traverse City (MI) and Steve Kinevo.

The aircraft hum.

The start/lift sequence.

The pilot/crew challenge.

Not going to lie, I kinda miss being in a rotor wing aircraft now.

An open door response #whoops

The rig is sounding awfully loud tonight…

…those apparatus mechanics really can’t get anything right!

Typical – blame everyone else first.

So, it’s probably a good time to check your doors BEFORE responding to any calls.

EMS Flight crews do it. Maybe a 360 walk around is a good idea.

What I read before every flight #safety

If you have ever flown with me, then you know…

…I am that guy that ALWAYS pulls out the safety card briefing card during prep for flight.

I follow along w/ the flight crew as they go over all safety procedures.

Seriously, I don’t care how hot you are, I will be paying attention during flight briefing. Try to distract me…and it won’t work.

Yep, #Imadork

Maybe it’s the years doing preflight checks or my over active imagination that when the time comes, I will most likely be at the door – who knows!

Race time! Ready….Set……

 

I’ll ask again: Are you sure you want to join me on assignment?
