    Episode 1036: Building the Unbreakable Firefighter

    in Training

    Welcome to the Unbreakable Firefighter Blog talk radio show were we are helping firefighters  improve their performance level on the fireground and inside the firehouse.

    Building firefighters that are prepared to push limits and find their weaknesses is where true development begins.  The unbreakable radio show is built to share the mission of becoming a firefighter that stands fast, learns constantly, and performs consistently.

    Being unbreakable doesn’t indicate being reckless, rather a being unbreakable is using solid attitude, sound tactics, and persistence to accomplish the mission of extinguishment.

    Do you have what it takes to be an unbreakable firefighter?

    Jim Prince, a native of Central Michigan with over 20 years of fire and rescue service experience spent about 6 months in New Orleans first as a Volunteer Firefighter then as a Logistics Generalist for FEMA.

    Jim had some amazing experiences with FEMA in various ways which he will share.  On this show we will focus on aspects of the infrastructure, how the federal/state/local resources may have been better deployed…and provide significant insight into the balance of the three key governmental entities.


    Cary and Gretchen will be hosting…we encourage folks to call in and share their feelings…See ya there!


    If you don’t like FEMA…call in…ask some questions or share your anger…Call in and lets crawl into the controversy…necessary or not…open discussion is a catharsis…let’s get ‘er done!


    Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’.  The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States.  It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos.  The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.


    The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten
