we have all read the volumes of ladder conpany srategy and tactics until we were blue in the face.what i would like to see is a forum dedicated to what the dont include in those publications.what i mean are the little tricks that we have picked up over the years.we only share them with other members of our dept.now with the internet and Firehouse.com we can share these tricks with others worldwide.some of these tricks can be about roof ops search,ventilation and so on.so people if you have a trick you want to share do it here. thanks mike m
