Welcome... I'm a Volunteer FF in Ohio. I'm actually a newbie, only been on about a month. If you're new to the forums, let me welcome you! I've only been posting/reading here for about a week and I think it's great! It's nice to have a place to ask questions and get information about procedures and new equipment, etc.
Have fun... and don't hesitate to post replies on any of the topics...
Be safe and God Bless!

Greetings from the North Star VFD in North Pole, Alaska. Always great to see someone knew on the fourms. The boards are a great way to pass along/recieve info.
I'm a recently retired Air force firefighter now volunteering with North Star. Again, welcome to the forums.

Hello! Are you in NYC or NY state? I'd like to find out what federal fire departments are still operating in the city. Regards.
