Early on, firefighting was different than the sophisticated technologically supported endeavor it is today. While first responders are now more knowledgeable, more sophisticated and more technically astute, much of the tradition and motivation of today stems from the actions of the brave souls who were armed with little more than a rubber coat, wooden ladder and usually a less than adequate stream of water. Based on this heritage and these traditions this website was created to support areas of concern to all first responders and the those they serve.
