    Ha ha ha. That is hysterical. Now he's all about NFPA standards.

    More pathetic nonsense from our resident loser.

    Interesting. I can't tell you the last time I saw a rafter roof built on a house in my area. Well, perhaps then it is more regional than I thought.

    For a while around me we were seeing treated lumber fundation walls. They were built on a cement footing and then after the house was constructed they backfilled up against the treated plywood just like they do a cement or block foundation wall. I haven't seen one done in years but a house 5 houses away from me was built like that.

    Nothing but silence and crickets from Booby after that NFPA attack. He must be studying his NFPA manuals, or maybe perhaps shaving his pubed hairs..........

    GALESBURG —
    Firefighters rescued a 3-year-old boy from a burning house shortly after midnight Tuesday. The child, whose name was not immediately being released, was sent by Life Flight to a Chicago hospital, apparently suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Galesburg Fire Department Battalion Chief Todd Peterson said the blaze at 801 Oak St. was reported at 12:25 a.m. Tuesday.

    “When they got there, there was heavy fire and smoke,” Peterson said.

    He was unsure how many occupants were in the house, but firefighters were told upon arrival the 3-year-old was still inside.

    “Everybody else had gotten out except for the 3-year-old,” Peterson said. “We had a crew go in the back in the area by the bedrooms. They found him hunkered down by a bedroom.”

    The heavy smoke made it difficult for firefighters to find the boy.

    “Visibility in a fully charged house is usually zero,” he said. “You have to kind of grope around. It was fairly hard to find him.”

    Firefighters handed the boy out through a window to a Galesburg police officer, who took him to the ambulance. Peterson was unsure which hospital the boy was flown to in Chicago.

    “The guys did a great job,” Peterson said.

    The house suffered heavy fire and smoke damage. Peterson said the incident remains under investigation. Details were unavailable at press time as to the boy’s condition or the cause of the fire, though an investigator said a night light might have been the origin.
    Heavy fire and smoke means LA wouldn't have done anything except let a child burn to death.

    LA, this is what real firemen do. They risk theirs to save others, because they have this thing called COURAGE.

    Was teaching a class last night and didn't get in until late. Was at a school all day today.

    Now waiting on some really nasty weather to hit us so I may not have much time to post some replies.

    I have seen some truss roofs being built in Shreveport and Bossier, but everything here is lumber and mails. At least for now.

    Dependent on manpower, training and experience.

    Not much into that courage thing. More into doing what is smart and right for the crew.

    Education alone has seldom made anyone too awful smart. It takes the ability to use what you learn and tie it in with real world experience. The term educated idiot is not a new one and unfortunately too many educated idiots, with no real world experience, are trying to take over the fire service and turn it into Romper Room. Frankly paper without experience means exactly diddly squat.

    Thanks again for posting your resume, what is that now 8 or 10 times in the last week. It is as meaningful as you picking and choosing what NFPA Standards you choose to support. Don't forget NFPA has a Standard for firefighter training too, as well as those physicals you keep making excuses to avoid.

    No, I really don't but I'm not like some of those running around quoting NFPA standards to support the fact that they want FFI as the national standard.

    Fine ... If they want FFI then they need to agree that it is unsafe to use 3 or 4 members for initial attack as NFPA states a fire requires 16 members.

    Then I'll agree to physicals. Well actually, my Chiefs would have to agree to that.
