    Firefighters

    in Blogs

     
    We all know why firefighters exist in our cities but we might not all know the importance of their jobs. Firefighters primarily extinguish fires that threaten civilian populations and property and to rescue people from danger. These hard workers used to only be men and were referred to as firemen, however, now many women fight the fires that threaten our cities so the team was changed from firemen to firefighters.
                To become a firefighter a college degree is not required however some do go to college and earn an associate or a bachelor degree in fire science. In these classes the soon to be firefighters will learn things such as how to control a fire with equipment or how to inform their communities on how to prevent fires. A college degree is not required to become a firefighter because most skills are learned on the job or in training. There are several different types of firefighters found around the world including the following; career firefighters, volunteer firefighters and retained firefighters. Firefighters also on average work a fifty-six hour week with eight to twenty-four hour shift. Firefighters serve in an important spot in our communities and are vital to the safety of our families and friends.

    Police Officers and Firefighters: Why Sleep Matters with Karen Lansing

    in Education

     I will be interviewing Karen about her book and a practice that she is dearly involved in. Karen practices EMDR also known as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR psychotherapy is an information processing therapy and uses an eight phase approach to address the experiential contributors of a wide range of pathologies. It attends to the past experiences that have set the groundwork for pathology, the current situations that trigger dysfunctional emotions, beliefs and sensations, and the positive experience needed to enhance future adaptive behaviors and mental health.


     


    Karen is the author of "The Rite of Return: Coming Back from Duty-Induced PTSD"


     


    Karen Lansing, LMFT, Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress has been described by one Northern Irish Police Commander as, “the grit that makes the pearl.” Her first police clients dubbed her their Cop Whisperer. Twice an American flag has flown over US bases within the Mid East in honor of her service to military assets.

    Business Meets Art – Life of a Top Sculptor

    in Business

    Joseph Petrovics has created the 9/11 World Trade Center firefighters’ memorial, monumental pieces for St. John the Divine cathedral, well known governmental commissions, as well as highly popular abstract pieces in wood, bronze, and stone.  When not instructing Americas young, up-and-coming elite, he labors in his studio, transforming his dreams and visions into the tangible.  All the while, Joseph is an independent businessman.  His art must not only meet his own idealized standards – it must be salable.


    How does a sculptor, even a top sculptor, make his work known and purchased?  How does one transform a 20-inch model of clay into a 16-foot bronze monument?  Now, Joseph has brought to life a new life-size model of a very unusual, emotionally-gripping horse. Tune in and learn what tools and energy brought it from his mind to his studio, and what steps it must take to move from studio into the pubic view?

    The Helios Biblios Hour (book of the SUN) : May Day The Destiny of America pt2

    in Current Events

    Over one hundred years have passed since that first May Day. In the earlier part of the 20th century, the US government tried to curb the celebration and further wipe it from the public's memory by establishing "Law and Order Day" on May 1. We can draw many parallels between the events of 1886 and today. We still have locked out steelworkers struggling for justice. We still have voices of freedom behind bars as in the cases of Mumia Abu Jamal and Leonard Peltier.What is the origin of mayday as a distress signal The term Mayday is used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications. It derives from the French venez m'aider, meaning “come help me”. It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency by many groups, such as police forces, pilots, firefighters, and transportation organizations.Draco’s story and his infamous Draconian Laws, offers us much food for thought and teaches us numerous political lessons. Draco, though commissioned by the majority of his co-citizens, and not the “gods” like his predecessors, failed to deliver a people-friendly legal system. Instead, he became notorious for delivering one of the most inhumane and harshest legal codes the world has ever known. Nevertheless, from the ashes of that failure a revolutionary system slowly emerged which would soon set the foundation for a significant portion of modern law and politics in the Western world.
