    Hi, welcome to forums fellow lurker! I just gave up voyeurism myself ~grinz.

    Where in Indiana are you from? One of my best friends was born and raised in a little town called Berne. If I recall correctly it still has only one stoplight!

    Hey Confire, I'm in northwest Indiana. Grew up in the Elkhart area (Jimtown) and currently live in LaPorte. I started following this forum to catch any grant announcement rumors, and quickly bagan spending too much time reading other stuff.

    Good to meet y'all.

    Confire,
    Yep, I'm a Jimmy from way back--1974. I wasn't on a dept there, but my niece is married to a former Baugo chief. I started two years ago (at age 47) with Pleasant Twshp which is just outside of laPorte. Most of our dept went through ff 1 and 2 along with the new state haz-mat awareness and ops earlier this year.
    The South Bend Trib reported that there was a large fire that started late the night before, but no details, and then I didn't see a follow-up article the next day. We were mutual aid along with most of LaPorte County last Tuesady on a huge dairy barn fire Tuesday night--10,000+ bales of hay. At least it wasn't foam rubber and polyester!!
    How's the Minuteman football team shaping up for this year?

    Nice website. The pic of the car-train MVA reminded me of how spooky those tracks were when i was living there. With all the shopping and traffic in that area now, they must keep your guys busier than you want to be.
