Reading Assignment – 7 21 13

It’s been a long week at ELAFF HQ and the list is a little late going out, but here it is:

  1. We Are Not Cyborgs – Gea Leigh Haff, Fire Service Warrior
    We had an especially tough fire in the “ELAFF Local” last weekend. This post went up on the FSW main site within 48 hours, just in time to read it prior to heading to the CISD myself. A fine article and excellent reminder.
  2. 35′ of Getting the Job DoneFirefighter Basics
    “There is hardly a reason to have more than 2 members raising the 35′ ladder.  The job does go quicker with 3 people but usually the 3rd person gets in the way.”
  3. That Idea Would Never Work Here! – Craig Nelson & Dane Carley, Fire Engineering 
    “Why are new ideas important to the fire service and, more specifically, to your department? Ideas turn into innovation, and innovation is how departments adapt to a changing environment.”
  4. Tactical Nozzle Considerations – Dan Doyle, Fire Engineering
