ABOUT
Anything from training articles to calls that we have gone on in my area, to issues going on in the fire service around the country. Whatever I feel as important. I would also like a place to record calls to be able to look back on in twenty years or so. This isn't just limited to firefighting as a first responder it will also be covering ems.

Recently we have had several fires involving these cup holder ashtrays. They are sold as a type of fire resistance plastic, however if not properly emptied and a water level maintained in the bottom they can ignite.

If you look close to the wall near the tree you can see the remains of a Cup Holder Type ashtray. It ignited outside a home and caused the house fire pictured in the photos. The mattress fire was caused by another Cup holder type ashtray next to the bed.

We recommend a sturdy glass or ceramic type ashtray be used at all times.

Can we pass this on? The proceeds of the shirt campaign go to the same cause, or if your really generous you can purchase gear for the different companies. There are 9 firehouses, 13 different companies involved asking for gear the city cant afford, that they need while on duty. Every cent helps. NFE started a smaller program to assist just one house awhile back after equipment was stolen from their rig. We were able to supply them with saws, a generator, and a BLS bag. They need our help.
