I just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. I am Chief of a small volunteer department in West Tennessee. We run 2 engines, 2 tankers and a squad out of 1 station. Last year we had 52 fire calls (probably 6 -8 actual structure fires) and 108 first responder calls. We have 16 members. We currently have a Class 7 ISO rating.

I have been reading the boards for some time now but just recently registered. I have gotten some useful information and have enjoyed hearing varying opinions regarding many aspects of fire department operations. I finally registered so that I could ask some questions and hopefully get some input from all of the knowledge and experience available from the members of these forums. I will be posting some of these questions in other forums in the near future.
