      Yes, *fire looks like I was still a bit frazzled when I woke up. Apartment building (4 units burned out, 7 units in total uninhabitable)

      It's cool man, been there a couple times. Yeah, those apartment buildings, if you're not quick the whole thing is a total loss. Sometimes you're lucky with one loss and minor smoke/water damage and others, thirteen units lost with the building uninhabitable.

      Idk how many apartment fires I have been too certainly in the double digits, and I have seen it both ways. But when you roll up with fire blowing out of every units windows and the roof no where to be seen, you know you're gonna be in for a fight 

  2. PGFD has suffered a tragic loss, with our first LODD since I have been a member, with another of my brothers still critical from gunshot wounds. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

      Ours (my NJ dept) is by appointment from the chief, who along with the DC and DC of EMS are the only voted members.

      Nice! Did FDNY just do the ladder and ambulance or did they do an engine as well?

      Just the ladder and ambulance I think.

      The Recue Engine was technically Rescue Squad 833 when it happened was the pump was OOS. This leads to the question of why it was so close, which is against our General Orders. As far as donations go, while 33 lost all of their tools their truck should be under insurance, another Seagrave most likely. But, 28s while they saved the tools will not be covered all the way due to its age.

      I saw the video a few more times, and it looks worse than the rigs they pulled out of ground zero. But I hope Kentland and West Lanham Hills gets new rigs quick. But I think that the whole fire could have been prevented in some way.

      I know 33 already got the county's spare squad

  9. Us going to our second fire in two days:

      Wow, that's insane! I thought the DFD and GFD were in rough shape.

  12. Crew sang C'Mon, C'Mon while responding to a working fire the other day. It is safe to say we are crazy in PG.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0b2TMcSsbY

  13. Smeal buys LTI:

  14. Putting on my helmet going to an alarm activation, when our FEO hit the brakes to avoid hitting a short parked Chief's Car around a turn. Now have a laceration right on the center of my forehead.

      I'd argue that in order to "get on air" you need to remove your helmet to get your mask on. If you're getting out of your truck with your mask on you're just asking for your mask to fog up and impair your visibility and make yourself look bad. (Seen it happen firsthand) A good firefighter should be able to take a hoseline to the door and mask up on the porch in seconds. If not donning drills are a good way to practice.

      Agreed, since this event; I have severely rethought my routine. Via reading, watching (

      ), and practice. I now feel I'm on the road, to correcting my flaws.
  15. I am in the process of becoming a PGFD firefighter!

  16. Lost my LDD files due to Windows 8.1 update

    1. Dustin

      Dustin

      You shouldnt have. Did you upgrade from windows 7 to Windows 8.1? If so you should have backed up your files. I just upgraded from 8 to 8.1 and didnt lose my files.

    2. ID-1

      ID-1

      Why would you ever update to Windows 8 at all? Such a shitty OS. 7 FTW. Could be a partition issue. I still recommend DropBox for LDD creations and other important files!

  17. Lost were my LDDs files went due going to upgradding to 8.1

  18. Anyone else been having problems with the site today? Such as not being able to get n and bandwith limits?
