Glad to see July is here and look what new equipment came in today:
Looking forward to doing some work with my Vanguard MK-1 gloves.
Initial observation – these Vanguard gloves are super soft!
Shout out to the team Nick, Andy, and Ryan!
I’m no genius, but if your fireworks say this…
…then you likely could get hurt. So please PLEASE be careful this 4th of July holiday.
Also, fireworks are expensive. Leave it to the pros.
Here’s a quick news story with my friend Euclid Fire Capt Jay Northup on the dangers of fireworks who was injured a few months ago in NE Ohio. (click on the picture)
Again, I would highly recommend that you leave the fireworks to the pros.
Sooooo, is this like a winter condom for your fire hydrant?
Glow in the dark reflective so you can find it better in the dark!!!
I love the extra effort people make to support their local fire department.
I was fortunate to make a stop at the National Interagency Fire Center
This is where the so many HotShots train and hone their skills
The Wildland Firefighter Foundation sought a special way to recognize firefighters after the loss of 14 lives during the 1994 South Canyon Fire. The Foundation partnered with the National Interagency Fire Center to pursue creation of a monument. Generous donations and tireless work of countless volunteers transformed a section of parking lot into a peaceful park. The Monument was officially dedicated in a ceremony on May 25, 2000.
So many placards displaying fallen Firefighters.
My SnapChat has a more in-depth story including better views w/ Spectacles.
If you ever get out to Idaho, check it out.
Be safe peeps.
Whut. Is. Happening.
Oh yes, let’s crash this podcast party.

Mahalos to Ryan for letting me crash his party!
Reporting live from behind the JumpSeatMic…
I was cleaning out a few older files from my cabinet and I came across an old gem from (now retired) Lt. Chris Goldsworth and his love for his water can.
This short video from Bellerose Terrace in New York exemplifies the effectiveness of a water can.
Aside from the 1 3/4, think about the lonely water can which sits poised to do some work.
“Never underestimate the power of your water can.” – Lt. Chris Goldsworth
So is that concrete box considered a “standpipe”?
No matter where you are, safety first!
