    Default Hello from London

    Hey everyone, My name is Steve Dudeney, I am an Assistant Divisional Officer (Battalion Chief)in the London Fire Brigade. I am also a contributing Author on Firehouse.com, where I will be inputting on International Firefighting Procedures.

    I have been based in the busy East End of London for most of my 15 Year Career, apart from a couple of Years training Company Officers at London's Training Centre. I spend a fair bit of time in New York looking at the differences in our Command and Firefighting Tactics and sharing inforamtion to try to establish Best Practice internationally. Look forward to chatting to you.

    Stay Safe & Be Lucky, Steve.

    Hey Steve, (OZ, Witold,Butch)

    I work in Washington State (30 miles east of Seattle). I have been in the fire service for 22years and am still learning as much now as I did when I began my career. I specialize in Extrication and have a keen interest in Fireground Tactics and Technical Rescue. We have three major rivers running through out area (Not at big as the Thames chap) and we are in the Cascade Mountains. We respond to forty miles of interstate and local roadways (which is when I have gotten a lot of my experience in extrication).

    London Fire Brigades:Paul Grimwood is one of my favorite technical writers for our field and done some of the best work I have read) He writes here ( http://www.firetactics.com/index.htm ) a lot. I hope to be in contact with you all in the future.

    take care Bro's

    Know Paul Grimwood very well. We had lunch a few weeks ago. I always like to bounce ideas off him, I feel he is one of the greats on the International Fire scene.
