2011 Year in Review – The Best of The Fire Critic for 2011

2011 was a great year here at FireCritic.com. Most of it was experienced along side Willie Wines Jr. We truly have a great time traveling and hanging out once we get to wherever we ended up. We made it to Atlanta, Indianapolis, New Jersey, New York City, Baltimore, Cincinnati, and plenty other places. Let me be clear here, when we travel we are all business when there is a job to be done. Once we are cut loose, we make the most of it. Much of our experiences are heightened by the people we meet, hang out with, enjoy a drink with, or even shed a tear with.

I am blessed. I never thought for a minute that FireCritic.com would rise to the status it has. I never estimated the network, reach, and friends I would make along the way. I also have never, and will never take a second of it for granted. I have made the greatest attempt to answer every email, twitter message, Facebook message, text, and phone call. Some of you have even received an email from me months after correspondence. This is because I lost it in the shuffle but didn’t want to forget about it after seeing it again.

2012 is proving to offer some great opportunities as well. Be sure to check out the Holiday Message from The Real Fire Critic here!

To all of you (both of you) readers, friends, fans, and fellow firefighters I hope to provide more fun, humor, news, information, links, and everything else that The Fire Critic embodies. Keep sending in your links, information, stories, and pictures!

Here are some other “year in reviews” worth reading:

    Rhett, thanks for a great year. I have had some darn good laughs watching you, Dave Statter and Capt Willie tease us all. I got teary reading about your climbs for the 343, and I thank you for doing them, when I cannot. Wish I’d said HI in Baltimore when I saw you and Willie – maybe next year.
    May you stay safe this year, and please tell Preston he does a terrific job with The Fire Critic! Barb/Sharppointy1

      Next time don’t be a stranger. We love meeting new people! We should make it to Baltimore, we will just have to see!
