TBT - 23 years old I had just been hired as a full time career FF, and started my probationary period. As you can tell, my rookie ass didn’t know where my brass was suppose to go... I had so many amazing adventures with the best group of leather heads you could ask for. I will never forget The years I spent in the fire service, I am thankful for every lesson learned and every brother I made along the way, stay safe ole’ boys. And if any of you are reading this on duty... I hope it stays quiet for you 😉 (only the real ones will get that) #tbt#fd#a-shift #firefightherparamedic#rookie#probie#tbt#brotherhood#leatherhead#smokeeaters#publicsafety

I was honored to add some color to an otherwise plain gravesite marker for one of Guilford Fire Department’s fallen. Story was, he was an old school smoke eater that served the small shoreline community of Guilford, CT for a majority of his adult life. This held a soft spot to me as not only did I grow up on the shoreline, but I grew up as a firehouse kid watching my old man and the men and women he worked with do some extraordinary things. #thinredline#smokeeaters#guilfordfiredepartment#cerakote
🚨Tool Review🚨 HME Aerial Prodicts HAF104F 104' 1750 GPM piece of awesomeness.
This is the truck our firehall is looking at purchasing, especially with 4 storey wood frame multi res going in and all the development. The company from Michigan brought it to demo and of course I went all the way up. We also flowed about 1000 GPM through the tower. It was sweet.
If you skip to the last thing its it flowing water into the wind.
This is how you do awesome. Happy Weekend everyone. @toolboxbuzz #tbbpro
It used to be hard to explain my old job. I felt like people just didn't get it. What's worse is there just wasn't very much footage or many pics like these in my day. We stopped at the gas station on the way to a fire and got a waterproof pocket camera for $15. This page and pages like it are amazing. If you live in a state that burns, please take the time to check out this page and ones like it, and see first hand what people are working through to protect you and yours.
Fact. ➡️ #repost @healthyfirefighters Research CLEARLY shows that firefighters unfortunately run a greater risk of being affected by a number of diseases in which the worst cases are fatal. #healthyfirefighters .
However, there are MANY ways to mitigate these risks. What best practices are you implementing to lower these numbers? Is there anything we can do help? Let us know. #citrosqueeze#washwednesday
