    Just 'cause we're moving to the Island, doesn't mean we're falling off the technological face of the earth! We'll still be on Firehouse!

    Actually, at times I wouldn't mind giving up the technology... it's getting way to easy for me to be found.

    The City put GPS Tracking on all of our vehicles.

    I hate the little bugger in my SUV. It tells me where I am going, where I arrived (in case I can't figure it out), then tells me how long I was there.

    At the end of the month, I get a detailed report that shows details on every vehicle.

    It even included every trip I made here to the "olde pub"...

    Yep, some family events beyond the control of even a good firefighter/EMT have come into being, and I have requested for a compassionate return to the Navy Of The Pacific.... however there are other irons in the fire so to speak, and as a Plan B contingency, I have also applied for a transfer from active duty to reserve status, and employment with 74 Comm Gp HQ. Each is contingent upon who moves the fastest.

    Sadly, I only know as much as the article relates.

    Ladder 1 - New Aerial Fire Truck Press Release
    Type:
    Press Release
    Notice Date:
    November 9, 2011 - December 9, 2012

    “LADDER 1”, 100 FOOT AERIAL FIRE RESCUE VEHICLE ADDED TO

    INNISFIL’S FIRE & RESCUE SERVICES FLEET

    Innisfil, ON (November 9, 2011) – A new truck, known as Ladder 1, takes the Innisfil’s Fire and Rescue service fleet “up” a notch, as Innisfil takes delivery of its new 100 foot platform fire truck. The 100 foot aerial ladder truck was custom built at Smeal Manufacturing in Omaha Nebraska, and is expected to remain in service at least 20 years. The unit will be operated out of Station #1 in Alcona, and is available to respond throughout the Innisfil area.

    “Innisfil continues to experience the pressures and challenges of a growing urban community and our Fire and Rescue Services need to keep pace with the tools that support the needs of the community,” said Fire Chief Randy Smith.

    The first step in putting the truck into service was to have Firefighters attend specialized training sessions conducted by the manufacturer. Over the next month firefighters will conduct additional driver training and response drills that simulate setting up Ladder 1 at various locations around Innisfil.

    With respect to Ladder 1 officially joining the fleet, Fire Chief Randy Smith said, “This impressive, highly effective, piece of fire apparatus will assist our emergency responders in delivering essential services now and into the future, as the community grows and develops its urban core.”

    Ladder 1 will replace a 50 foot ladder truck which will be re-deployed to improve the service level in Stroud and the surrounding community. The truck was delivered mid-October, however will not go into service until November 15, 2011, as the department works to complete the required training.

    Key Technical Details

    Ladder 1 is very versatile; it has a pump, carries water and fire hose so it can be used like any other fire truck in our fleet, supplying water at a fire scene.
    The 100 foot elevated platform provides the lateral reach required to put firefighters safely on the roof of a structure, while working from the street.
    While used to rescue people from high buildings, more common uses for the unit would be as an elevated work platform, a rescue support vehicle, fire service pumper, a Command Post, or providing scene lighting and power at a municipal disaster event.

    The onboard generator and light tower make it ideal for lighting up an accident and/or fire scene at night. This provides a much safer work area for emergency responders and has a direct impact on the efficiency of Police, Paramedics and Fire Rescue crews as they operate in hazardous conditions.
    The large size of this unit allows us to carry a great deal of support equipment, essentially making it a mobile “tool crib”. During a major emergency or municipal disaster event, responders will have tools they need when they need it.

    H3ll no!!! I had one of those once. Just once was more than enough. Just a big ol' slow-cooked turkey bird with carrots, an onion, an apple, sage, salt and pepper shoved up its butt.

    Last year, at the house, we had grilled steaks and smoked turkey breast for Thanksgiving. Leftovers disappeared quickly. This year, we had traditional turkey, we were giving leftovers away before letting people exit the driveway.

    Turkey pot pie, anyone?
