Too many firefighter deaths and injuries have plagued the fire service today.  We have a tenuous history of being aggressive, forgiving of our lives too easily and being lead by the "That's the way we Always have Done It" and maybe that's the change we need to correct.  Then we need to of course step up our challenge to be educated and stay at the top of our profession by training to the latest and greatest up to the minutes things.


Were to this do you all come in with your thoughts,  just trying to bring some change here in my department, but where to start is the difficult part I sometimes think.


Your comments and perspectives are requested and eagerly awaited.  Thanks in advance for any and all responses to this I receive.
