Tune in this week to the latest episode of The Front Seat on Firefighter Netcast.  Last month we were excited to add Bill Carey of Backstep Firefighter and Firefighter Behavior as a co-host.  This month Dave and Bill will dig into the meat and potatoes of the Fire Service’s mission and the resources available to fulfill them.

We are all aware of our oath to protect lives and property, but what happens when that oath comes in direct conflict with our ability to do that?  The policy makers are usually nowhere to be found at 2am when heavy smoke is showing from a single family residence and we are the ones forced to balance our mission and the safety of the public with our resources and the safety of our crews.

As part of this month’s show we asked you, the listener, to share your tips and tricks of operating shorthanded.  We received some good write ups and we will be sharing those as well.  We are also looking for you to call in and make this a true “kitchen table” discussion.  We will also announce the winner of the “Expect Fire” contest.

So tune in this week, Thursday October 27th at 9:00pm EST and be part of the discussion.  Tell us how your Department deals with the Mission of the Fire Service, the Public Expectation and the resources available to accomplish both.
