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

  2. 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.

  6. 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~


      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.

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

      How long until results are in?

    2. ~JD~


      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.

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

  10. 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!

  11. The crap day when two districts get brush fires and your district is on cover.

    1. ~JD~


      District 14 on the Westside of the county got a brush fire that pulled crews from 2 or 3 other stations and got us on cover and then a second brush fire occurred in District 20 on the Southeast side of the county pulling additional resources south of us. Needless to say the county is stretched thin, luckily FFS is assisting so hopefully it doesn't last long.

  12. So this weekend was nuts, big fight at the local mall that had 5 arrested, a shooting in the north area of my district and a shooting with homicide in the neighborhood next to mine. Along with all the brush fires popping up it's kept everyone busy.

      My goodness, stay safe out there!

      Thanks Mike, will do!

CCFR activated it's Wildfire Task Force to assist, bringing extra manpower and equipment to the scene.
