Volunteer Firefighters: Can there be too much training?

By Ron Cheves | 10/05/2012

Are we losing volunteer firefighters because we are demanding too much training? If you talk to 20 different fire departments, you will hear 20 different requirements for training and 20 different number of hours required to meet the minimum set by the individual department. Training hours are so very important, but should we be thinking more about the content and the type of training we are suggesting to our members? To offer more training hours on top of what is required is certainly needed, but how much is too much? I will agree that the 36-hour minimum required by the state of North Carolina will not even start to make you a firefig... Read More...

Firefighters attend ‘Know Your Smoke’ training

We have all heard the saying “where there is smoke there is fire,” but have you really thought about what is in smoke and what it does to you? On July 20-21, the Fire Smoke Coalition presented two days of training to North and South Carolina firefighters at Catawba Valley Community College in Hickory. Instructors of the seminar were: Battalion Chief Jason Krusen with Columbia Fire Department, SC Paramedic/ Training Officer Robert Marschall from Hillsborough County, Florida Read More...

What are your options in these tough times?

By Mark D. Reese | 10/05/2012

We all know that times are tough everywhere right now. Public Safety agencies in every region of the country are having to trim their budgets and tighten the Ol’ agency belt loops to make everything balance. This has meant laying off personnel and delaying purchases of needed replacement apparatus and rescue equipment too. It may be a few more years until things get better, but the next disaster really doesn’t care. It has you on the radar no matter what. Read More...

The ‘Cycle of Mediocrity’ Its destructive effect on emergency services

By Lee Sudia | 10/05/2012

“We Have Met the Enemy and it is Us.” No truer statement is applicable to emergency services in the United States and particularly in North Carolina than this. We in emergency services are losing our edge of excellence due to an insidious attack of a cancer-like disease which has infected our profession. It is destroying the very foundation that our lifestyles are based upon. This disease is known in classes that I teach as the “Cycle of Mediocrity.” The Cycle of Mediocrity involves the “dummying” down of our whole system through improper training and lack of operational standards. These attitudes by politicians and certain emergency service... Read More...

Electronic Pre-Plans and Emergency Preparedness for schools

Dennis Amodio | 10/05/2012

(This is part three of a three-part series on pre-planning.) More often than not, schools have standard procedures for responding to an incident or emergency that aren’t as effective or efficient as they can be. I know one high school that has their town’s fire department enter the building through the second floor window. The fire department actually uses a ladder to get into the building rather than walking through the door. This happens because the department doesn’t have access to the school’s keys, and the school hasn’t taken the steps to provide the department with the correct situational awareness. A solution to this problem is s... Read More...
