It Could Be You

Summer heat can bring wildfires. If you live in an area where they are common, there are steps you can take to minimize damage.

The best thing you can do is use fire resistant building materials. If this isn't possible, be sure to remove flammable materials, such as leaves, from your roof and store gasoline away from occupied buildings.

Comment by Fyre Walker on July 18, 2010 at 7:18pm
LOL! Funny Doc! That was LAST year! Yuck it up, it won't last long!
Comment by Stephen Hawkins on July 18, 2010 at 7:12pm
I think Frye should go into Wildland FF
It would be like save the Gators instead of save the whales.

But then I'm from Alabama and the tide washed up the Gators on shore last year.

Comment by Capt. D Lewis on July 18, 2010 at 5:05pm
Nice group half-pint. So are you thinking about going into Wildland FF?

I'm going to have to agree with Andy, from the reports I receive it is going to be a nasty summer. I wish I was home for it.

Keep up the great work firefighter!
Comment by LT. Andrew Poole on July 3, 2010 at 6:51pm
Great group Chief. We definitely needs something like this. It's going to be a nasty, dry summer.

Marines become instant firefighters
On weekend training with a USMC-R Engineering group we were operating in a field of dead high grass in March with 40 mi/hr winds.
A Sargent accidently set off a trip flare and it was instant wildfire. I immediately had Uncle Sam's Misguided Chillen grab their E tools with 2/3 of them bumping the fire toward a lake and a dirt road with the last third on the road creating a firebreak.

Meanwhile the active duty was clinging on a hill trying to hold on cause they were laughing so hard.

A few NCOs were going to be tough and got infront of the flames. I took them to the ER for Smoke injestion in the brain later after the fire was out.

The local Vol FD pulled up took one look at the charred landscape ( We stopped it at the road ) and laughed. They did not want to fight it since the area was abandoned strip mines and very rough.

One Marine Quipped "This was harder than Paris Island"

Comment by Fyre Walker on June 16, 2010 at 1:22pm
