Health Care Reform and EMS: at odds or at peace?

Amar Patel | 08/01/2012

There’s a saying that the only thing you can count on is change, and that’s especially true when it comes to providing emergency services. Whether you’ve recently begun using an electronic medical record (EMR) to chart your patient’s vital signs (rather than writing them on paper), or you’re participating in a new, interactive fire and rescue training activity with high-tech simulation mannequins, you know change is inevitable. The key to dealing with change in a positive way is to embrace it. Read More...

The new plan: Using wirelessly connected monitoring equipment to protect First Response Hazmat teams

Bobby Sheikhan | 08/01/2012

From the time it capsized at a refinery dock in Texas City, the listing barge — loaded with 235,000 gallons of sulfuric acid — began seeping its toxic, corrosive load into the 30-foot-deep waterway. The water mixing with sulfuric acid inside the hull had begun to corrode the steel. This process reduced the barge’s structural integrity and created reactions inside the sealed compartment that generated a cloud of highly flammable, highly pressurized hydrogen gas — just one spark away from a calamitous blast. It was time for a new plan. That plan included federal and regional Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) personnel expanding... Read More...

Returning to the Foundations: foam fire streams

Mike Coffey | 08/01/2012

Foam fire streams are one of the few fire streams that have a special purpose. That purpose is a four-fold plan: Separating fuels from fire Cools temperature of the fuel and surrounding surfaces Smothers or suppresses the release of flammable vapors thereby reducing chances of re-ignition or the initial ignition of a fuel Penetration of water by reducing its surface tension and allowing water to penetrate into a deep-seated fire area Read More...

Rainbow Stew: The importance of "good education, good healthcare and a good job" in the Fire Service

Dave Murphy | 08/01/2012

With national elections on the horizon, we are constantly bombarded by each candidate’s economic quick-fix version which usually only serves to raise the debt ceiling culminating in just another “rainbow stew” budget line item to be shouldered by the American worker. In reality, the only possible long term solution to what ails our great nation was proposed in 2002, just before his untimely death. It has been 10 years since the passing of a true American hero, Senator Paul Wellstone. A dated dispatch from the St. Paul Pioneer Press that quotes Senator Wellstone as saying, from the Senate floor, “if you want real welfare reform, you focus on ... Read More...

Volunteer Firefighters: Who the heck do you think you are?

Ron Cheves | 08/01/2012

I’m really tired of reading about volunteer firefighters doing stupid things! Some people already think of us as tobacco chewing, redneck, 4X4 truck driving, “belly-hanging-over our-belts,” wanna-be heroes, and we’re sure not helping our own cause. Read the news from across the country and you’ll see that we’re giving the public plenty to talk about. We had volunteer firefighters in Tennessee who responded to a fire and then refused to extinguish the fire because the homeowners did not pay their fire dues. Why respond in the first place? So you could get your photo taken and be the subject of national news? Read More...

Fire Station Design: the single story vs. multi-story firehouse

Ken Newell | 08/01/2012

“Should our new station be two floors or one floor?” It’s not unusual for this question to be brought up during the preliminary stages of public safety station design, and it’s one that we’ve heard many times over the years while working with officials on new and renovated stations. If this is your question, there are numerous factors to consider before making a final decision. And, as those who work in emergency services know full well, the best decisions are well-informed decisions. Therefore, let’s examine a few key factors that you need to consider. Read More...

Fire Service Safety: Avoid aggressive ignorance on scene

| 08/01/2012

Several years ago I was at the scene of a 1,000 gallon Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) tank that was laying on its side leaking what was clearly liquid, creating a large white vapor cloud around the tank and creating a Lower Explosive Limits (LEL) hot zone of greater than 500 feet down wind of the tank.  The fire department personnel went to work setting up hot zones, shutting down a major highway, performing evacuation and tactical strategies for entry to attempt mitigation.  A second alarm for manpower was called for due to the heat and humidity.  At this point you could say we were in the textbook.  The following could be the picture in ...
