I find this fairly informative....stuff on operations,tools,and training. There's even a bit about the culture and the people that make up the urban fire service.

Found out about it while doing forcible entry drill a few days ago....I never heard of it prior. Forcible entry was the topic I used as part of my officer training some years back. It's my forte.

The funeral home in my neighborhood used to have a hearse with gold spinning rims. It was used to take a person to their final resting place whose mourners had t-shirts with the deceased's picture on them.

Now they have a more boring hearse.

Those are awesome. They also make for a good weapon. Imagine getting one of the working ends right in the teeth!
