NORTH CAROLINA INCIDENT LOG Zebulon Fire Department entering contract with Johnston County A new arrangement between Johnston County and the Zebulon Fire Department will result in better home insurance rates for some residents in the Corinth Holders area starting May 1. The Zebulon department since 2001 has assisted the Corinth Holders Fire Department in serving the Belle Aire Acres subdivision off Perry Curtis Road, south of Zebulon. But the subdivision is only accessible from Wake County. And while it is more than five miles from the Corinth Holders department, it is less than three miles from the Zebulon station. Insurance ratings factor ... Read More...

The effects of ObamaCare on your EMS service Exploring how the Affordable Care Act will impact our profession

By Amar Patel | 01/23/2014

These days, the word “ObamaCare” is bringing optimism and hope to some Americans and feelings of frustration to a great many others. Many health care providers share these same feelings, and while not everyone agrees on how it should be done, most all would say that medical reform is necessary. There is significant room for improvement in the business of health care. Read More...

By Sherry Brooks | 01/23/2014

Fire and Football Revisited

By David Greene | 01/23/2014

Although this article will be read at the end of football season, it is being written while the NCAA football teams are making things exciting. There are many parallels between the modern day fire-service and football teams. Short of having “scheduled games,” we function very much the same. We could also learn a few things from the well-managed football teams. Being a huge fan, I have previously mentioned that while I do not want to minimize the importance of college football, I do think our job of saving lives and property is more important than how your favorite team performs on Saturday — at least a little. First, consider the amount of t... Read More...

Developing YOUR maintenance program

By Willie Wimmer | 01/23/2014

Developing a maintenance program for your department is one of the most important tasks that need to be performed, as well as adjusted to your department’s ever changing response needs. First let’s look at the two basic types of maintenance — proactive and reactive. Proactive is when you take the initiative to repair things before they break or in routine maintenance schedules. Reactive is where you fix the items only as they break and nothing more. The reactive route is very hard to budget due to the unknowns. When a proactive maintenance program is developed you will see within a year a couple of the benefits — some far more out way others... Read More...

ASK ERNIE - The Apparatus Maintenance Expert

By Anthony D. (Tony) Bulygo | 01/23/2014

Before we start this edition of “Ask Ernie” please allow me to expand on an earlier question regarding changing apparatus from incandescent or strobe to LED lighting. A caution: If you operate in very cold climates, LED lighting does not generate much heat. As such, snow can build up on the LED lamp, limiting its output. Know your environmental requirements when specifying LED lighting. Now, to your questions: Explain the purpose of NFPA 1911. NFPA wisely chose to bring all testing documents together into one single all-inclusive testing document in 2007. Formerly, NFPA 1911 was the annual “Standard for Service Tests of Fire Pump Systems on ... Read More...

HEAVY vehicle rescue

By David Pease | 01/23/2014

Well, as you read this column the holidays will be over. I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s and got to spend time with family and friends. Our families are the backbone of who we are and what we do, and without that we would not be able to function as we do. Always make time for them no matter what. I am sure during the holidays the amount of calls went up and the number of motor vehicle crashes increased as well. With more drivers on the road, along with the addition of drinking and texting over the holidays, we will see and respond to more crashes. But then again, it is what we do. Read More...

The Color Code of survival: A situational awareness tool

Capt. Brad Maness | 01/23/2014

Earlier this year, I completed a police reserve training course that spanned five months. While there was a massive amount of information to absorb, some of it stood out above the rest. As I mentioned in a previous article, law enforcement and military personnel have spent a great deal of time learning what goes on in the mind of those who serve and protect. Firefighters and police officers have always had that unspoken rivalry and we both feel like we are superior to each other. Today and in the future we face many of the same challenges. First responders have become likely targets of a troubled society. We continue to see LODDs increase fr... Read More...

A few months ago while I was attending a class at an emergency services conference the speaker put up a slide which caught my attention. So much so that I made it into a sign that hangs in my office. It simply says, “Smart people solve problems ... geniuses prevent them.” Now, I’m not a genius, and smart is sometimes questionable as well, but I thought this was a great motto. Read More...
