First Due Tackle Goes Live

It is with great excitement that we can announce the launch of this new Fire&EMS blog network site.  Much of the information on this site has been transferred in from my old blog including the posts contributed by others.

Here’s a bit about the site:

By routinely reflecting on the challenges that first due companies face, the materials herein will hopefully get you thinking critically and/or more creatively about how to use your tackle.  Contributors to this site and members of the crew vary in experience, age, technological abilities, and number of fish caught.  In addition, their houses of call cover the spectrum of rural volunteer, small combination, and career metropolitan fire departments.  It’s this aspect of our writing and instruction that we hope will find a place in your firehouse and on your training ground.  Read more about the premise behind the logo here.

I cannot thank brother firefighter Darrell Fitch enough for his awesome work on the FDT logo.  He turned some thoughts into the great design above.  Check out Fire Medic Art on facebook or his website.

Many others have contributed to the making of this site and I thank you.  For everyone else, thank you for your viewership, insight, and contributions.  Let’s keep it going for the betterment of the fire service.

Be sure to join in on Facebook and Twitter.

Pass it on!
