Time to Remember September 12, 2001

After a day of remembering the horrible events that unfolded on 9/11 some 10 years ago I believe it is time to remember what it was like on 9-12-01!  We had been attacked on our soil by some foreign cowards and America had responded! On Sept. 12 we all responded! From the pile that was […]

What 9/11 Confirmed for me….

9/11 meant back to the Jumpseat.   Good afternoon from the “Views Crew”. On this somber day we pause to reflect on the events from 11 years ago.  We all remember where we were and what we were doing when the US was attacked.  All Americans grabbed their televisions and stayed glued as we watched […]

What 9/11 should mean to the Fire Service!

Remembering 9/11 Good evening from the jumpseat.  On the eve of 9/11 comes we should all pause for a moment of silence for the lives lost that day.  We also should honor the sacrifice by learning out trade.  Watch this great video from the FDNY and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. “We lost a lot of […]

Are YOU Prepared?

Buffalo Firefighters responded yesterday afternoon at 1553 Hrs for a report of a structure fire on Bailey Ave across from Engine 23 quarters. Are YOU this Prepared.

Firefighter’s Goal

Once again, we are back in the jumpseat, welcome back!  Do you have a goal for your fire service career?  This question popped up in my head today as we reviewed the upcoming sports season.  Most athletes have goals that they strive to reach.  From a football player making it to the super bowl to […]

Busiest Firefighter on Scene?

Good afternoon from the jumpseat.  As another busy shift progressed on the best side we recieved the three words we all sit around and wait for.  Engine 8 for the “reported Structure Fire.”  Those words came across the radio as I was stepping up to drive the engine while returning from an automatic alarm when […]
