Video by: HPZ1442. Video info: Responded at shift change to a report of smoke in the area of elmhurst and 3rd. Arrived to find a very well involved dwelling. Our initial plan was to go in on tank water while the FEO hooked up to the hydrant across the street. That hydrant did not work, so we stuck around the front door knocking down what we could from there with tank water. Our FEO and Eng2s FEO had to stretch 4inch a block and a half to get to a hydrant that worked since most in this area do not. By the time we had established a water supply the fire had gone through the roof and our OIC took a defensive stance calling us out of the structure to put up our tower. Fire was brought under control within 2 and a half hours. No injuries, or exposure damage. Video was shot with a firecam 1080. You can purchase one at firevideo.net. video was edited with final cut

It’s time we recognize Jurassic Park for what it is—memories and history. Count yourself lucky: You get to live in both worlds, that is, the world of science and tradition. Our training grounds need to maintain the best of both of these worlds, too. We need to use the drill ground to reinforce our greatest traditions, and to dismantle our most dangerous ones so that we come to know that, for example, it is possible to conduct an aggressive fire attack from an exterior position. I ask you to join the migration from Jurassic Park to the new era, because “Thinking Firefighters Do It Different.”

What happens at work stays at work. I tried that. It wasn’t working. Maybe the job caused me to drink like a fool, maybe I’m genetically predisposed to alcoholism, I really don’t know. I do know that after ten years on the job I had to stop drinking or it would have killed me. So I did. After a few years of sobriety I started writing.

I have been busy recently and am just seeing this amazing video for the first time. Less than 10 seconds after command tells everyone to get out of the collapse zone, the house collapses. Not all of the firefighters were able to get to a safe area in time, two firefighters were injured.
I had previously covered the video when dash camera footage was available. View that post here.
Video by: BoiseFireDepartment. Video info: New Video Shows Close Call: New video being released today taken by a firefighter’s helmet cam shows just how close a call it was for several firefighters as they battled the 3-alarm, 3-story house fire. In describing video previously released of the incident, Boise Fire Chief Dennis Doan explained it was thanks to an alert firefighter whose training allowed him to recognize signs that the large structure was about to collapse, and the immediately notification from the Incident Commander warning firefighters to back away from the structure that likely saved several lives. “Calm heads mean good decision making especially in a crisis. We train for the worst and that training paid off.” said Chief Doan. Two firefighters were injured in the collapse. Both were hit by falling debris that pushed them into the side of the neighbor’s home. One firefighter was hit in the chest, the other in the leg. Neither injury was serious.

I asked for pictures of you participating in 9/11 Memorial Stair Climbs, Memorial Services, and other events. WOW…you guys kept me busy keeping up. I certainly hope I didn’t miss any submissions. I also included 12 of the dozens of videos available on Youtube.
All I really have to say is thank you all for representing the fire service in remembering our Fallen Brothers and all who died that day. Your preservation of memorial events will help younger Americans and others in remembering and learning about what happened on September 11, 2001. #RFB

Burlington, NJ 11 Alarm Commercial Fire 9-1-2013
Video by: firtog. Video info: Firefighters in Burlington County New Jersey had their hands full as they strike 7 alarms for a commercial structure fire. The warehouse which is a distribution facility had only security guards working when the fire broke out. Crews put multiple ladder pipes and master streams in service to try and put a knock on the fire which was running the roof of the building. Crews from Burlington, Mercer, Gloucester and Camden counties converged on the blaze which caused heavy damage to the building. At one point as it appeared crews were getting the upper hand the roof gave way which unleashed intense fire and a smoke column seen up to 20 miles away……

Not much information on this one, but I did find it interesting that they used foam for attacking the fire. I realize that there are departments who use foam regularly, my department is not one of them. We carry foam, but it is rarely used. How many of you use foam regularly?
