Views From the Jumpseat

Welcome to Views from the Jumpseat blog on This blog is dedicated to the men and women of today's fire services that are on the end of the hoseline or running the ambulance calls across the world. Views from the Jumpseat will cover a variety of topics that affect us all.

From the chief of the department to the newest probie, we all have ridden in the backseat at some point of our careers. The goal of this new blog is to help our reader's see things from that perspective.

So grab your gear, put on your helmet, and mask up firefighter. It's time to join in the fight with comments and share the word. This is a working incident, working on making us all safer!
