Overcome Evil With Good

I originally wrote this article while serving as Chaplain-General at the Order of St. Isidore of Seville. As first responders we certainly see our share of evil. In fact far too often it gets directed toward us. I hope this article will in some small way help you to handle the evil that you encounter in a way that is consistent with your faith in Christ.

Fire Burns Behind Orange County Homes

A fire was burning in east Orange County in a wooded area behind homes along Spring Buck Trail early Monday evening.



At one point, the fire burned dangerously close to a half dozen homes off Curry Ford Road. Firefighters were concerned about the fire from the moment they arrived.



"It looked as if the flames were coming right for the house. So it was a little scary for a little bit," said resident Bill Scott.



One neighbor took a hose to his rooftop, as… Continue

Jury finds San Diego subjected 4 to 'simulated sex acts' in 2007 event



Four San Diego firefighters who were ordered by their department to appear in the city's 2007 homosexual "Pride Parade" have been awarded $5,000 each for emotional damages from the event, where they were forced to witness "simulated sex acts."



"Government employees should never be forced to participate in events or acts that violate their sincerely held beliefs," said Charles… Continue

Emergency Responder Rehabilitation

In order for a rehab operation to be completely successful, the area must be easily located and defined. In this photo, the rehab area is specifically designated by use of blue traffic cones. Photo: Phoenix Fire Department

From having to respond in the heat and humidity of summer and in the freezing temperatures and biting winds of winter, I believe the demands associated with firefighting and other emergency operations exceed those of just about any other… Continue

Cancer Killing Week

I know that many on this site if not all have been affected by cancer in some way. Family, friend, co-worker....the possibilities are endless that you have been touched in many ways. Even tho this week had some good points like meeting with the architect to build our new fire hall.....it was dampened for me by two very heartbreaking phone calls. Last Friday and this past Saturday I lost not one, but two friends to cancer. Both too young to have been struck down and cut off by such a… Continue

Black History Month – A Celebration of Pioneers in the American Fire Service

In celebration of Black History Month this February, I thought it would be most appropriate to look back and remember African Americans who have lead the way in making American fire service history:



* The oldest documents identifying government sanctioned African American firefighters were found in New Orleans, Louisiana. A devastating fire in July 1817 led the governing body to organize its people to avoid another conflagration. All draymen and their equipment as well as… Continue

" Happy Valentine's Day Maryann !!!

When Cupid's arrow struck

We were just seventeen

I was a Track Star

You were the Queen



Reminiscing about when

We rode bikes in the rain

Walked barefoot through puddles

And cruisin' on Main



Then came the kids

Romance waned a bit

We never went out much

No one to babysit



I've made some mistakes

And I've felt remorse

The heading I took

Was a little off course



Things I didn't say

I thought… Continue

USFA Blog: Lights and Siren Response

The use of warning lights and sirens on fire and EMS emergency vehicles is a basic component of emergency response and patient transport in this country. Over the past several years, the effectiveness of this long-standing tradition in affecting patient outcome or decreasing property or financial loss has come into question. What is known is that the majority of emergency vehicle crashes occur when warning lights and siren are in use. Vehicle crashes are a leading cause of on-duty… Continue

Praying at the Mayor

Last night at our Mayor's invitation I was able to give the invocation at city council meeting here in Katy. It was my first appearance as fire department chaplain at something other than a department event. It went well in fact the C.E.O. of our local chamber of commerce commented to me after the meeting about what a good invocation I gave. The Mayor was grateful thanking me profusely many times.



It also gave me a chance to congratulate our city's new chief of police. I hadn't seen… Continue

Bodies Lie In Road As Australian Fires Rage

Death Toll Rises To 166

Australia's prime minister said if arsonists are responsible for the devastating wildfires that have roared through the state of Victoria, then it amounts to "mass murder."



Police in Victoria said the death toll has reached 166 people.



Officials said 60-mph winds and temperatures as high as 117 degrees Fahrenheit sped the fires and touched off panic.



Investigators said arsonists may have set some of the 400… Continue
