    Seriously bro, I did fire prevention the other day with my dept, and heres a tip.

    Take off your lid and gloves, and get down on the floor and play with the kids. Click on your flashlight, let them "try" your lid on (hold it on their head). I eventually became a jungle gym for a group of kids who were initially scared of me,

    I did exactly that.. took off my gloves, knelt down beside the kids.. (funny.. i grew up with the teacher btw.. she used to live next door and was the same age) As the teacher explained that i was just like them i came off air, unbuckled my helmet, and got out of my gear.. After i was out, i let the kids try my helmet and mask on, and let them touch almost everything.. (I had just washed my turnouts, so there wasn't anything nasty on them) and answered questions about the stuff.. in the end they were all happy and weren't scared anymore.. Thanks for the suggestion..

    Default Here's a pic of me:

    It's not the best picture in the world, but it shows me working as the driver-pump operator. 2x 3" hoses hooked up with one yet to be inflated.

    I was not aware of the picture being taken; To see me smile, just look at my avatar

    Damien....

    Had to bust your balls on that pic.....LOL


    I do something similar, I start out by having them watch me go from my dress uniform to putting the stuff on and watch me "change uniforms" Then I get right next to them and they can touch me, play with my flashlight, listen to me breathe, and I point out that they can still see my eyes in the mask. That seems to make it easier for them to watch me get dressed then see my eyes too.

    No matter what, you will always have a kid or two that doesn't want anything to do with you and gets scared.

    Does your helmet have a pull-down visor inside it?

    Yes, it has. It's a rosenbauer heroes helmet. Visor can't be pulled down when wearing the mask.

    Now that you aren't in the sunny climes of Florida anymore, you're going to have to put some meat on those bones to stay warm. HAHAHA

    Yeah Harve, looks like you either are a little whooped or you just got told you couldn't play in the fire anymore.

    Chin up Tiger, there will be more fire!




    Lots of white helmets with SCBA's on. Something that isn't typical around here.

    I think he just caught a glimpse of the guy in the grey shorts and was doing his best to keep his lunch down. Shiny shorts like that turn my tummy too.
