Brain only likes blue lights. Nothing else computes.

And those colors really depend on state! I wish it was more universal…

Fire/ems should run reds like it’s always been and police should get blue

2 1/2” distributor nozzle for basement fires.

One of my favorite nozzles honestly. IT SPINS. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE IT.

The Bresnan Distributor literally saved our companies life in a Colorado mansion fire, March 2012. It’s not your bread and butter, but it is essential to learn and train on other tactics

Reflection from a K-9 Police Handler

For the second time this summer Jago and I were called to the scene of a State park for report of someone missing. This evening it was to Wallum lake in Douglas for 2 young girls who wandered off into the woods. The outcome was good, the girls were located and safely returned to their parents.

As a civilian you all get to flip on the television to watch the news, or read a news paper or look on social media or search the internet to hear of these stories. I want to give you a perspective of what it is like as a police officer to actually be there. Being a K9 officer and on other specialized units I have been able to be a part of some critical incidents like this and watch as they unfold from the inside.

Today I saw what OUR tax money and resources go to. And quite frankly its amazing. When I got on scene I saw a state police helicopter in the air, numerous state troopers, state police K9’s, local police officers from all over, environmental police, paramedics from all over, dive teams and their boats, local k9 teams from marlboro, webster, paxton, douglas, oxford. I saw fire fighters. I saw ambulances from towns all around. Everyone had one main objective and it was to find these 2 girls none of us had ever met. Many of us were home when we got the call. I myself had just got home and was about to eat dinner with my kids that I hadnt seen all day. I got the page, put my food down before the first bite and raced out the door.

The Douglas police chief and state police Sgt. Had k9 cops huddled around them devising a plan to devour the whole area till we found these kids.

After the kids were located everyone had huge smiles on their faces and a sense of relief could be felt. As I pulled away from the scene watching everyone put their gear away, loading the boats on the trailers, putting the k9’s in their cars, I couldnt help but think one thing. How good it feels to be an American, knowing that so many people can come together to help someone else in need, and to do it no matter what the cost or sacrifice.

Next time you hear someone complain about all of these resources and how they can be a waste, think of the 2 little girls we found today and how you would feel if they were yours. I know how I would feel…….thankful.
