Spent part of my day at Twinsburg Fire (Summit County, OH).
Great to see Fire Chief Tim Morgan. Fun fact, I first met him when he was a new red helmet. We talked a bit about regionalization as well as building partnerships through our IMTs (Incident Management Teams).
But the fun began when I got a chance to chat with Assistant Fire Chief Steve Bosso about PIO stuff.
And of course other stuff too.
Say it with me: “partnerships”
Trust me, its great to have such an outspoken advocate for safety at Twinsburg and Summit County.
Be safe peeps – always lean on your trusted fellow peeps before the big one hits.
I would say that this is pretty much pristine condition.
Bonus points for the gold bulldog too! (Note: The company’s trademark is the bulldog. It can be found on the front of almost all Mack trucks. A Mack truck with a gold-plated bulldog indicates that the entire truck is made of Mack components. Trucks with another manufacturer’s transmission, engine, rear axles or suspension are given the chrome-plated bulldog.)
So Chief-when you get your new engine/tanker in, let me know and I’ll be happy to take this off of your hands…you know, make room on your bay floors. I’d also be happy to bring it back anytime you needed it for a parade and stuff too.
Special thanks to Tipp City Fire Chief Steve Kessler and crews – Outstanding job to all of Tipp City Fire Department on preserving a true gem of fire service history.
It’s 2014 National Severe Weather Awareness Week from March 2nd through March 8th.
Do you have snow shovels and snow removal equipment in your emergency preparedness kit?
Do you have adequate clothing and blankets to keep warm?
How are the batteries in your NOAA Weather Radio so you can get immediate updates from the National Weather Service (NWS)?
During severe weather, minimize your travel. If travel is necessary, always keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle.
Bring pets/companion animals inside during winter weather. Move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water.
Snow day? Do not let kids play for long periods of time. Most everyone should stay away from the roads during severe weather. A great demonstration of why you should stay indoors by Fox29’s Steve Keeley.
