    1. Report from Engine Co. 82 by Dennis Smith for Leisurely Reading

    Vehicle Rescue by Harvey Grant for Technical Reading

    2. Not sure if I have a song that gets me pumped up "for the academy" but one that gets me pumped up for big swim meets and anything else is "Right Now" by Van Halen

    3. Anything involving any type of rescue.
    - Vehicle Extrication - Rope Rescue - Confined Space Rescue - Water Rescue - Ice Rescue - Rescue from burning buildings - Wilderness search and rescue

    1. Don't know if you can call it a training manual but I must say I enjoying reading and learning from Firehouse Mag. (yes I probably have some brown on my nose now lol)

    2. For the song I would have to go with "Give it all" by Rise Against. Really pumps me up for whatever I'm fixing to face on the next call.

    3. Also have to agree with RFRD on the best training being extrication because I mean come on, you get to destroy a car.

    Hmm. Maybe thats the problem.

    You dont have to use hydraulic tools to do extrication.

    Sawzalls, air chisels, hand tools, read a bit about it and you would be surprised.

    Or just listen to RFRD's dad talk about the trainings he ran back when they lived in Montgomery County, MD. I did tonight for about an hour... He didn't let his trainees use the hydraulic stuff at first. He taught them how to do it with hand tools and come-alongs first as a way to teach them what to do int he event of the hydraulic cutters/tools breaking.

    Yup forgot about that one. So do hacksaws, socket sets, air chisels, and you used to be able to pull an entire windshield using hay hooks.






    Ok....here's one. I fear that only Harve or someone from the east coast might know this one, but I am prepared to be surprised.

    Anyone else know what a spring tool is?
