    Default Videos for Motivation...

    Explorers and Juniors- Like you, I love being in the fire service. Also like you, I started at the bottom and worked my way up. I am also sure you've got your sights set on a bright future.

    For me, sometimes I need a little motivation and view these videos. I wanted to share them with you and hope you enjoy.

    Nothing like a good back injury to end a performance. I think she'll be a contender on the next American Idol.

    She don't mind at all. I was a little concerned though when I saw this pic of your life-partner floating around the internet though. Still working that Guido fascination I see.

    I don't know Bou. Videos such as these kind of irritate me. It's so over the top with the epic music and huge fires/rescues that it may give young, impressionable Jrs and explores the wrong idea of the service. I'd like to see a video of a typical day at work. You know, checking the rigs, cleaning the house, going to training, sitting around BSing with the guys, and waiting for calls. Then show what the majority of those calls are and see if people still get their rocks off and pumped up. This job is great, but it isn't what videos and TV shows make it out to be. Don't think for an instant that everyday is a still shot. Just my .02 worth though.

    Good call on that one. But what I see is something to get people excited about the fire service.

    A video of people checking out rigs, BSing and playing hoop wont ignite people and get them excited about the job and its high points.

    Very true. Fire shots are great to watch and always bring about discussion at the table regarding tactics and search/rescue techniques.

    great videos, I agree with the both of you guys. I am thinking of all of these video ideas and would absolutely love to get on my departments film/video crew. I was thinking of a video that incorporates station life, sweet code3 engine angles, fire, music, and so on. if you guys want, here is a link to my youtube account with some videos and lots of favorited fire videos.
