Hearts and sirens: Preventing emotional overload

By Douglas Cline | 01/10/2013

The personality profile of the emergency service worker is one that is action-oriented tainted with the concept of control. It is not hard to figure out what drives the average emergency service worker. It is the adrenaline rush that is produced from responding to a working structure fire that has been upgraded by the first arriving unit to a second alarm assignment, to a gunshot wound to the chest that requires the medical responder to provide a vast array of life saving skills or a technical rescue where specialized skills have to be deployed to save a life or mitigate a hazard. To many these are routine responses and probably will be hand... Read More...

At 93, EMT still saving lives

The pager goes off and Clinton Lowman drops what he is doing to rush to his black pickup. There’s an emergency in Icard and Lowman, an Emergency Medical Technician, heads to the scene ready to help the person in need. When he arrives, he is used to folks doing a double take when they see who hops out of the truck to help them. That’s because Lowman is 93. “(A nursing home facility) had a call about 10 or 12 years ago, the first call we ran up there, one of the nurses turned around to him and asked (Lowman) if he was where he was supposed to be,” said Brand Lingerfelt, fire chief at Icard Township Fire Department. “It’s highly unusu...

How many times have you attended a training symposium or seminar and been bored to tears? As the speaker drones on and on about some uninteresting topic, your mind wanders: “I think I’ll check my emails and see what’s going on back at the office.

Are you ready for 2013?

By Mark D. Reese | 01/10/2013

This has been an interesting year for the country and all of the hard working public safety professionals across the United States. Many agencies have also had to deal with both large and small-scale emergencies, as well as budget problems and the balancing act that takes place between the need for services and the decline in revenue. It is never an easy environment to operate in, but with some good planning, 2013 can start out strong. Revisit Policies and Procedures If the budget axe hit your agency, you need to ensure that your current capabilities match your response policies. If you have had to cut FTEs, shut down stations,...

Returning to the foundations: Water supply

By Mike Coffey | 01/10/2013

In order to fight the majority of fires we encounter today, water is the main ammunition we use in battle due to its availability, affordability and its effectiveness in absorbing heat from combustion. Securing a water source is highly important for fire suppression efforts. That water source can be static — meaning natural or fabricated lakes, ponds, rivers or other spots of water availability — or pressurized by the local water system providing water for drinking and sanitary reasons. Understanding where the water comes from aids us in fire extinguishment and ultimately in life safety and property conservation. Read More...

During an early morning response to a house fire in Santa Rose de Temuco, Chile, firefighters witnessed the unbelievable. A mother dog risked her life to save her puppies from the fire surrounding the burning house, which started because of a car bomb. The mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth, putting her 10 day old puppies in the safest place she could find — a fire truck! Read More...

By Dennis Amodio | 01/10/2013

Disasters like Hurricane Sandy that impact large areas and several types of infrastructure, cripple communities and cost us lives are an unfortunate reality we face as First Responders. As firefighters it is our mission to do everything we can to mitigate the impact events like Sandy have on the communities we serve. It is also important for the first responder community to view the preparation for, response to, and recovery from events like Hurricane Sandy as an opportunity to learn how to do our parts better, and as a reminder of how valuable our day-to-day technologies are in training for and mitigating the impact of these large-scale inc...
