    Default New Website

    I am sure if I am not supposed to do this I will be informed.

    Anyway there is a new website www.onlyredtrucks.com
    It is a website with videos of fires in northern Illinois on it.

    My dept. has 2 structure fires on there. (Loves Park)

    If anyone is interested I am the one pumping the truck on the basement fire video.

    Oh yeah I'm Back!!

    Cool website Mike. I'll have to work on getting something from PC on there. We've had more fires than ambulance calls this year so I should get a video in soon.
    And welcome back.

    Unfortunately i do not know the man's name who set it up,
    but when he put our new const. fire on the website he also
    gave us a DVD of the fire.

    Great website, excellant way to critique your fires, and see what other dept.s are doing.

    I wish they had videos of fires in our area. Lately we have been running our butts off.

    The photo of the three firepersons in front of the metal shed involved reminds me of a dispatch we recieved. Dispatch: Respond to a combine on fire at such and such address. Upon arrival the first company reported the combine was in a shed full of farm machinery and chemicals with fuel storage tanks nearby. The shed was fully involved along with acetylene torch tanks and fuel storage tanks. Not what we normally expect when a combine is on fire.
