  1. 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.

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

      How long until results are in?

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

  3. JFRD responded to a tanker rollover on the far Westside on I-10. Engines 7 and 46, Heavy Engine 143, Squad 14, Hazmat 7, Ladder 7, tanker 43 and Rescues 7, 43 and 46.  

  4. Anyone else hear about Philly ordering 3 new tillers from Pierce?

      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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. Two fires sparked by lightening overnight, both on the south side, the first was a single family residence with fire showing through the roof. JFRD Engines 42, 51, 54 and 44, Squad 14, Rescues 42 and 54, Tankers 42 and 54, Brush 42, Ladder 44 and Tower 21, Battalion 4. The second was an apartment fire damaging 8 units, fire also showing through the roof upon arrival and struck a 2nd alarm. JFRD Engines 1,19, 21, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 50, Rescues 1, 21, 27, 28A, 29 and 30, Battalions 1 and 2, Saftey 1, Ladders 1, 4, 28 and 30, Squad 12, Air 5, Tanker 29.

  9. Major wildfire in Nassau County (North of Jacksonville). Multiple crews responded and responding to engage the fire, currently it is 60% contained. Nassau County Fire Rescue crews and volunteer crews are on scene with Nassau County SO, as well as FHP, JFRD, FFS, CCFR, Macclenney FD and crews from Charlotte County GA. CCFR activated it's Wildfire Task Force to assist, bringing extra manpower and equipment to the scene.

  10. JFRD recently equipped every engine company and ladder company with ALS equipment, combined with the city's ALS rescue units gives the city 110 fully equipped ALS units. Apparently this makes JFRD the largest department to have full ALS capabilities.

      Cool. All East Northport engines and the ladder are BLS-equipped and the ambulances are all ALS-equipped. Still need a medic to actually run ALS though. We currently have 8 (I think) volunteer paramedics plus one paid fly-medic and one paid fly-EMT.

      The Medic is F/T and the EMT is P/T. The EMT's car can be taken by anyone when not on shift.

  11. Major MVC in District 17 late last night. CCFR Engines 15, 17 and 18 Rescues 15, 18 and 26, MCU 26, Batt. 1, St. Vincent's Medics 06, 08, 14, 16 and 21 with CCSO and FHP. Stations 19 and 25 were on alert/cover assignments.

  12. Sad day for Orlando PD and Orange County SO, two officers killed in the line of duty. Thoughts and prayers to our brothers and sisters in blue.

      Prayers indeed!

  13. Went in to TRU to see about some clearance and apparently it's the opposite for lego. Everything was marked up, even stuff that's been there for months. Kind of ridiculous in my opinion.

  14. Fingers crossed guys, took my final for EMT. Waiting on the course results. Next up will be state/NREMT exam to make it official.
