" The Fire Service "

The house that I grew up in was gutted by fire when I was a teenager and our family lost everything we owned except Mom's oversized, large-print Bible, that remained intact, incurring smoke damage only. From that day on, I knew what I wanted to do with my life and prayed that one day my dream would manifest itself in reality. It's been a bittersweet career as I LOVE the job but HATE the politics. I was heartbroken when two young boys died in a Ft.Wayne hospital, weeks after I found them in a… Continue

Oklahoma's largest ambulance company will become the first ambulance service in the nation to outfit its entire fleet with new Howler sirens, designed to emit low-frequency tones that penetrate objects… Continue

Friday, November 7, 2008



ROCKLEDGE, Fla. -- A cat, maybe, but what about a man stuck in a tree? Firefighters in Rockledge had to rescue a tree trimmer who accidentally hit a power line Friday.



The electricity made it too dangerous for him to climb down.



"When I came outside and I was watching the limb, then all of the sudden you saw the poll start cracking. Then, when it hit the aluminum ladder, you saw the sparks happen. It was kind of scary for a… Continue
