At last some one from closer to home.
I am from Dublin, Ireland. A full time firefighter/emt. Its good to hear from somebody in the UK. I have made good friends in the states and aussie land, but you are the first guy I have come across from close to home.
Look forward to hearing from you, and would be interested in hearing about how busy you guys are, were you are stationed, you know all the usual stuff.
Talk soon and stay safe.

I am looking forward to chating with you in the future. This is a great site and a good source of all kinds of information. As for our boys up in Worcester, very tragic. We all have to watch ourselves. Lets pray it never happens again.

Welcome to the Firehouse forums, Steve. I'm fairly new myself, but I have become a forum veteran in a short time. I'm sure our brothers across the pond share a lot of the same experiences and problems. The names of the Department/Brigade and the people may change, but it's still the same game.
Take care and be safe....Lieutenant (or is it Leftenant?) Gonzo

Welcome Steve from the UK. It will be great to hear you ideas on the different topics here in the forums. The more ideas the better because what works for one person may not work for the next person. And yes lets all pray that no more tragedies happen like the on the past week.
