    Innisfil Unveils "Ladder 1"
    Innisfil has unveiled its latest tool to fight fires today. A new 100-foot aerial truck, known as Ladder 1, has now been added to the town’s Fire and Rescue team. The unit will be operated out of Station #1 in Alcona, and is available to respond to calls throughout the Innisfil area. Once training is complete, the new truck will go into service on November 15th.

    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?

    As we have ready ourselves for another Christmas, we must not forget the members who will not be here this year. They were called to duty and gave their all. Some had returned back to quarters, when the Good Lord called them home.

    At this time, as we sing, party, eat and be joyous, lets paused and give the members who will not be joining us a toast and a moment of silence.

    I concur. As most of everyone knows, we have main battle fleets sailing around the southern Med and other parts of the world. Once again, my last ship, HMCS VANCOUVER has spent another Christmas away on deployment. This year she is in the Med, overlooking Lybia. It was 10 years ago this very month, that I spent a similar holiday season, looking out from the quarterdeck, at a foreign land and wishing to be somewhere else.

    For the Crew, their families and friends, I hope that this Day was as happy and wonderful as it could be. May it also be uneventful for the Crew of HMCS VANCOUVER, and for all other ships and crews of all the Battle Groups on deployment.

    Default But Occifer....

    {7 reasons for impaired driving}:

    "But ossifer … " You can bet that B.C. police officers have heard it all when it comes to excuses people give when they're caught driving impaired. Here are the top 7 excuses this holiday season:

    1. ‘I’m driving my drunk friends home … I’ve had less than all of them.’
    - Police say: Choosing the least drunk person to be the designated driver is not a safe way to get friends and family home, and it’s a decision that could end in tragedy. Start the night with a plan to get home safely – choose a designated driver before you go out, make sure you have money for transit or a taxi, a place to stay overnight or a friend you can call for a ride.

    2. ‘I’ve only had a couple.’
    - Police say: Every drink you consume adds to your level of impairment. The ‘just a couple’ mentality can blur your perception of reality and the actual number of drinks you’ve consumed throughout the night.

    3. ‘I was just going two blocks.’
    - Police say: Impaired driving is dangerous and illegal whether you are travelling one block or 20 kilometres (12 miles).

    4. ‘I can hold my liquor.’
    - Police say: We often hear from drivers who have survived an alcohol-related crash that they had very little to drink and really didn’t think they were impaired. Alcohol affects your perception of how impaired you are, and your risk of crashing increases with each alcoholic drink you consume.

    5. ‘I can't be drunk...I'm the designated driver!’
    - Police say: Taking your turn to be the designated driver is a commitment that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Offer to be the designated driver before you head out to celebrate – but remember that a true designated driver is the person who decides not to drink so they can drive others home safely.

    6. ‘I was the soberest of them all and they wanted to go to town.’- Police say: Don’t get caught up in the celebration – if you’ve been drinking, make the smart choice to get home safely.

    7. ‘Taxis take too long.’
    - Police say: CounterAttack road checks are everywhere – so think twice about getting behind the wheel; you might just encounter a friendly, neighbourhood roadcheck.
