    Default Need Pictures

    I work for a private firm that has been tasked by the USDOJ-Office of Domestic Prepardness to revise the Emergency Response to Terrorism:Basic Concepts course. I am in need of some public-domain photographs of emergency responders in either Level "B" or "A" CPC doing air monitoring activities. If you have such photos and would like to share these with me I would be greatly appreciative. You may contact me at the following e-mail address:

    Kristen,

    What problem would that be? You can see that in magazines and catalogs. I also will have to take the time to dig up the disks I have some pics on also gneal, if I find them I will send you a few.

    I sent you the reply, and you've probably alreay have read it Kristen. But..watched pearl harbor too many times?? I can't make the connection. But its like I said, pictures of anyone in a level A or B suit is the same whether they are fire or not. Its a suit, people wear it...that's not too hard to figure out.

    1) Showing pictures of people doing Level A monitoring does not teach anyone anything about our countermeasures anymore than showing someone a picture of a firetruck would give them an indication of how to fight fires.

    2) gneal- sorry- none of the training pictures I have found so far are of value, but I have a CD or two that I still am looking for. I'll get back to you.

    my apologies...im just fed up with the sanitization of life as we know it because of the big bad terrorist.i live 15 minutes from Manhatthan, i was involved in fire and ems activities on 9-11,12 and 13 and i dont let it get to me...people (im not saying you stroutkristen) have become scared of their own shadows. see what happens when you watch too much TV?

    StroutKristen,
    Your question is well founded. Which is the reason that I had asked for PUBLIC-DOMAIN photographs. Using that type of picture would show neither the capabilities or resources needed to combat Bio-terrorism or any or type of incident nor is there any copyright infringement. I knew that my response would draw some questions which is also the reason for placing my e-mail address in the post. I would like to assure you and any others that this request is made with the best intentions of providing a better training course and lerning opportunities for responding to terrorism incidents. As for the having photographs in my collection, I was never one to photograph stuff, I was usually to busy working in the trenches so to speak in my 22 years in the Fire and EMS service. Please feel free to email at any time if there is any question. I extend this to all who would read this post and any other that I may place in the future. gneal@community-research.com

    Truck6alpha thanks for you assistance, it is greatly appreciated.

    Why would pictures of responders in Level A and B suits give terrorists an advantage?

    There are articles in Fire House Mag about responding to NBC emergencies. How do we keep the magazine out of the "wrong hands?"

    Am I the only HazMat instructor that is not doing background checks on my students?

    Just wondering!

    And I went to the main page of Firehouse.com and typed hazmat in the search box.

    Got 1,450 results in .11 of a second.

    Damn, can we camouflage web pages as well?
