Hey I'm a new guy and just wanted to say hello. I'm an AC in charge of training for a small DOD fire department in Iwakuni, Japan. I've been here since September and am loving Japan. You want to talk challenging, try teaching amercian fire fighting techniques to Japanese Nationals who speak very little english. Oh well, I din't get into this job because it was easy.

Greetings from North Pole, Alaska! Sounds like quite a challenge you have. I'm a retired Air Force Firefighter so I understand some of the challenges of the DOD Fire Sevice - had quite a time in the late 70's, early 80's when I was in England with the difference between the way the British fought fire and the way we did. A few years ago I had the priveledge to spend ten days in Okinawa- Japan certainly is a beutiful country(a bit crowded for my liking though) - was quite impressed watching the local national FD in action, and then seeing the Tokyo FD in action( must admit their firetrucks were a bit different). Keep us posted. Hang in there. Have a great, safe day.
