Well, it appears that Dave and Chris have pulled off another amazing venture. I just spent the better part of an hour (with work waiting patiently on my desk) checking out the new FireEMSBlogs.comsite with direct links to some of my favorite bloggers, as well as a few I have wanted to check out but didn’t yet squeeze into my schedule.

While I’m pleased and flattered to have been included, I’m also pretty psyched because FHZ hashad some serious trafficin the last few hours, so it’s apparent that the strategy to put some very visible (and well-read) bloggers together in a network would pay off for all of us. It’s that synergy thing, I guess.

So take the time to enjoy some of the excellent bloggers we have on here and come back and tell me what you think of them. There are a few tweaks I want to make here on FHZ as well, so don’t be surprised if things change a little over the next few days (or weeks, since I still have a Buddy Walk to get done and a flooring company to support). Regardless, I’m pretty excited about this endeavor, and we haven’t even been up for four hours. Let’s see where it goes-

The Roto-Ray: Beauty or Beast?
One of the most important facts we reviewed when deciding on the roto ray purchase was this; With the speeds of traffic on SC 278, by the time people heard the sirens on our fire trucks our light bars (on top of the roof) were out of sight. The roto ray, with its mounted location…

Questioning Heroism
Thanks, Bryan! I genuinely believe I do and they tend to reward me with professionalism, innovation, and compassion to our citizens daily. That's something I am happy to facilitate.

Questioning Heroism
Chief, appreciated in your response to Geoff that you work for the FFs. Believe if more Chiefs lived that philosophy our fire services would be bastions of honor, ethics, and human potential.

Questioning Heroism
Geoff, EMS, as its own service, does not have a strong voice and in turn, does not get the respect in the media/public that it does deserve. I do hope that changes. EMS doesn't have a home either, and that doesn't help. There are so many different delivery methods in this country that its probably…

Questioning Heroism
I'm sorry you feel that way, Geoff. The department I work with has been doing EMS (advanced care AND transport) with cross-trained personnel for over twenty years and doing a pretty good job. Our community expects a certain level of service that we have been able to provide through that model and while not every…
