New Firehouse Tablet App Out: Download it Today

The January edition of the Firehouse Limited Edition Tablet App is now available to download and it is filled with new features on training and leadership.

The first edition of the year looks at establishing goals for the fire service in 2014. The editorial by Peter Matthews offers some ideas for training goals and fire service instructors share their goals in the "Firehouse Asks" feature. Ryan Pennington lays out his goals for the fireground learning, rescue operations and his career in this latest article.

Shannon Arledge details the training that fire, law enforcement and hospital personnel went through in preprations for next month's Super Bowl at the MetLife Stadium.

An enhanced version of Ron Moore's "University of Extrication" series from the January issue of Firehouse Magazine includes additional information and photos on airbag cutting techniques.

What does your chief's vehicle say about him or her? Read Allen W. Baldwin's new series "Random Thoughts from the Chief's Buggy" to learn about the messages their vehicle conveys.

The five-part series on developing a dedicated rescue team wraps up in this edition.

"This series is to share the knowledge and mistakes we made while starting our team," Firehouse Technical Rescue Editor Bob Duemmel said. "We made some assumptions that slowed our progress and needlessly consumed our time. These articles help readers avoid those errors."

This month's cover story is from a Dec. 18 fire at a Superfund site in Tennessee. See exclusive photos and learn more about the hazards found at these federally mandated hazardous materials sites.

Grab your iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Zoom or Nexus Android tablet and download the new edition from the iTunes store or download on Google Play.
