  1. *Sigh* Welp the storm has passed but the damage will be here awhile. Flooding is bad statewide, especially here in Jax. First responders are mobilizing with Coast Guard and National Guard assets to begin search and rescue, assessments of structures and start to return things to normal.

      From my understanding, FEMA USAR teams are on site from Miami and Broward with FL USAR teams to cover as much area as possible. So far I've seen teams from Nashville, Little Rock and Phoenix to support local teams, not sure if crews from Atlanta will be heading down and heard crews from Ohio may be heading down, not sure on that. Task Force 5 (Jax) likely has more work as there is no team between Jacksonville and Tallahassee and may need to deploy west. Areas around Jax have local dept based USAR teams that are handling as much as they can right now but are spread thin as well.

      Mississippi Task Force 1 is on site in Clay county with additional water rescue resources.

  2. Just sittin' here waiting on Irma, eating way to much of the hurricane food. Stay safe my Florida peeps!

  3. Well, I've decided to take the bull by the horns and organize my collection. This semester is a lot lighter than the previous one so I have more time available. The quantum and a few other side projects are now on hold while I sort out my disaster. I plugged in all the boxed sets to brickset and I have some 850+ sets I need to open and sort! Whoopy

  4. Still plugging away on the project. Hoping to have some body work done before posting. Needless to say this may be a one time build with all the work involved. And still, the collection remains a mess. 

  5. Well, it's been steady progress on my build but nothing photo worthy just yet. Really need to organize my collection though, spent way to much time digging through parts. On another note, it seems like the city was going crazy today, 2 officers shot, a barricaded subject in a near by gas station, my neighbor was in a car accident and the store next to my work had an attempted robbery. What the heck is going on?

      Terrible things happening around the world.... On a side note, I can't wait to see what you have in store!

      I know it, guess it was a good thing I stayed home yesterday! Hopefully, I'll have something by Monday night for you guys.

  6. Been working steady on a project and have some decent progress but nothing solid yet. Hope to have something ready by Saturday to show.

  7. Finally got some time to pull out the bricks again! I've got 10 days off from college so hopefully I can put something together so Mike isn't hogging all the gallery glory! 😉 Lol I've also been remind that my collection is extremely unorganized, so I have a side project now as well.

  9. Early morning fire at a pulp mill in clay hill. Crews from clay county and JFRD responded. CCFR Engines 13 and 14, Tanker 14, Rescue 13, Batt. 1 and Ladder 26. JFRD Engines 143, 46 and 56, Tankers 43 and 46, Batt. 4, Rescue 46, brush 43 and 46.

  10. Just heard the town I was an explorer with is getting a new engine! Not sure on the specs but the truck is likely to be a pierce quantum.

  11. Was finishing up a meeting at work when a DUI MVC happened outside. Drunk guy fled, two victims got accessed by me before crews arrived. SO was all over the scene. JFRD kind of blew me off once on scene but whatevs. Busy night.

      Did you pass your NREMT?

    2. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Unfortunately missed it the first time but I've made arrangements for the second time. Plan to study up on the missed sections and hopefully pass before medic starts.

  12. Took my NREMT exam yesterday, just waiting on the results!

    1. Edward O.

      How long until results are in?

      Should be tomorrow, it says 2-3 business days.

      They must have really liked the 750 lb tipload and the 60 degree cramp angle 😂

      Just heard they actually cancelled the KME tiller order, which is totally surprising considering their history with KME.

    4. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Wow, that is surprising. I wonder why they cancelled.

  15. Welp, Florida's looking like a tinderbox this fire season. My county along with dozens of others issued burn bans in the last few days and my county just issued a state of emergency. But on the lighter side I received my Lego orders from Star Wars day, so that's a plus!
