This is a bit of a long post…and it involves plenty of video. I got in front of the computer searching for what fires were caught on video and uploaded to Youtube…and I found a ton!
There is also a great video about the Mayday, Rescue, and Rescesutation of a Lt. in Columbus, Ohio at Paul Hasenmeier’s blog “Pass the Training & Tradition Blog”. The video describes what happened when Lt. Mike Polaski went down at a bread and butter house fire in Columbus. It occured in the basement and firefighters were quick to put their training into action and rescue one of their own. The fruits of their training and labor is that Mike survived the event. Great job guys!
I am actually sitting here working at ole #13 on C-shift. I am paying back another guy for working for him. I am sitting right next to Captain Willie Wines Jr. and we are having a great time! I even made him a cake for his 20th anniversary on the department. I made him a cake with a bunny rabbit on it. The messed up thing is that I only put one ear on the rabbit. Willie, with the sick mind that he has, thinks it was actually something else. I just don’t see how he thought I would put that on his cake! I mean really, what kind of person does he think I am?
Now, on to the videos!
