    Episode 1179: 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?

    Episode 1218: Professional Volunteer Fire Service

    in Training

    When headlines appear featuring stories about volunteer firefighters embezzling funds from their fire department, it definitely hurts the professional reputation we work so hard to earn.


    Today, public safety agencies can no longer financially manage their operations with a checkbook and a pen. State and Federal requirements, in addition to insurance requirements now place more responsibilities on agency leaders to manage their volunteer fire and EMS organizations like a business.


    Tonight’s show will discuss financial reporting requirements and best practices for managing fire and EMS agency financial systems. My guest will be Dr. William William F. Jenaway, Vice President of VFIS Education, Training and Consulting Services; as well as President of the Board of Directors of the Congressional Fire Services Institute. We will focus on preventing theft in our volunteer firehouses and Dr. Jenaway will outline many important steps that should be implemented by the professional volunteer fire department to safeguard the department’s treasury and maintain accountability by department leaders.


    Examining issues and challenges faced by the volunteer firefighter today.  Being a professional firefighter has nothing to do with earning a paycheck but has everything to do with attitude, appearance, commitment and dedication. Hosted by Tom Merrill.

    in Politics

    Hosted by Marti Oakley

    Guests:  Heidi Turpen and Atty: Michael McCray


    In May 2015 Heidi started her first season as a Forestry Technician in the timber program on the Sequoia National Forest in Region 5,
    California. Heidi was directed to live in coed barracks that included at least one male firefighter who insisted upon using the women's toilet
    and shower. From the start Heidi endured discrimination in the form of vicious rumors, sexual innuendo about sleeping with coworkers, and
    multiple incidents of a sexually hostile work environment. As the season went on Heidi was faced with sexual harassment by an Engine Captain in
    front of other employees. She later discovered that he had been identified as a “repeat offender” and had been accused of work place violence by a subordinate employee. In another situation she and another female coworker were yelled at and intimidated by another male firefighter. She discovered this employee was also a repeat offender who had been accused of harassment and work place violence against women.


    She reported the harassment and as retaliation from management, Heidi was subjected to an illegal Forest Service law enforcement search of her barracks with a drug dog. She discovered the Law Enforcement Officer had done this to another woman who had reported harassment.


    As ran act of retaliation Heidi was left alone in the wilderness while on duty by her crew leader without a radio or GPS unit. This was a safety issue.
