  • A blogger break is often needed to reset. Take your time, we’ll cover your runs.
    As far as comments on content…keep it coming, but the grey and black stripes are a bit distracting. Perhaps darken them a bit?

    We’ll be here when you get back.

    I kind of like the stripes…kind of draws you in. As far as taking a break, it’s just something we all need every now and then.

    I think you guys post quality content, and especially liked the Tactics Tuesday stuff, just cause it’s a quick way to keep on your toes, and easy to grab the crew for a few minutes and get everybody’s take. Most of all, I like the different viewpionts from your crew. All post good pieces, and are open to discussion about them.

    Looking forward to your next offering(s)!

Marques Bush

Firefighter Basics launched in February 2009 after Founder/Editor Marques Bush was looking for a way to express himself and share his experiences with brother and sister firefighters. Shortly after founding the site Marques spoke with several trusted friends and ask them to come on board and contribute also. Firefighter Basics is a dedicated group of firefighters who strive everyday to practice what they preach about Training, Safety, and Tradition.  We can be reached at firefighterbasics@gmail.com

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
I found that firefighters do more calls than just structure fires, so with that I've established an acronym I use and teach others in my company. FIRE; First unit, Identify, Resources, Evaluate. It's simple and can't be used for any type of call. I know it won't ever catch like SLICERS but it works. First…

Ideology vs Philosophy: Are you Slicing or Dicing in the fire service trends
When I think of slicers or dicers I think of an acronym to remind you of interior attack tactics. S you should constantly be aware of your surroundings by maintaining your situational awareness while making an interior attack. L locating the fire is really apart of size up I.e. Seat of the fire and extension.…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
As you can most likely tell, I am in favor of the questioning. Thank you for your concern, but I am not offended. This arena does not lend itself kindly to the soft skinned. The purpose of this site is the discussion. Seeing how other departments operate and comparing that to how your department operates.…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
Anchor point, I to detest ideologues, there are no silver bullets, there is no one size tactic that fits all fires. I find it absolutely distressing that recently a friend of mine called those who disagree with some of the tactics being suggested as a result of some of the studies from UL and NIST…

The next big thing…or just another acronym?
We are honored to have you comment on our little blog, Thank you. I do not like acronyms, a checklist it's more accurate. I was in the Army for 7 years, I am very familiar with acronyms. Much ado about nothing maybe, but yet, here we are. I recently watched a video that described the…
