Well its that time of year again. The kids are going back to school, the Western fair starts next week and the even better Ilderton fair starts Sept 29th!

And with the Ilderton fall fair comes the annual strength challenge in support of our local firefighters association.

This year we are bringing back the original strength challenge circuit from 4 years ago of straw bail pyramids, keg tosses, and tire flipping plus 1-2 new challenges of course to keep in fun!

We will run 2 divisions again this year - an intermediate and an advanced. The only difference between the 2 is in the intermediate 1 teammate only does 1 leg of the course vs in the advanced where 1 teammate will do all 4-5 legs of the course.

All I need are teams of 4 people, an awesome team name, which division you are competing in and 20 bucks/team. This is all for fun, bragging rights, name on the winners trophy and most of all the Ilderton Firefighters Association.

Any questions or to register for this years event don't hesitate to send me a message.

Survey: Many Firefighters Putting Love of Firefighting Above Health, Safety – Firefighters Worldwide

A recent survey of 2,400 firefighters contributes to the renewed national conversation on firefighter health and efforts to prevent line of duty deaths from cardiovascular and other health events.

This conversation is critical given that 2014 is proving to be one of the worst years for firefighters killed by stress, overexertion or heart attack. The year has already seen 57 line of duty fatalities as of August 27, with 32 of these due to stress/overexertion, and 29 of those specified as heart attack. That’s 50.9% of all LODDs this year attributed to a heart attack.

Our First FDIC Indianapolis

FDIC Indianapolis is simply amazing…

FDIC 2014 Indiana Convention Center This post is about our first visit to FDIC Indianapolis. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is a week long firefighter convention and training show in Indianapolis. I was told by plenty of other firefighters that you have to see it to believe it. I have attended some other smaller shows including Toronto so I get what it is about. You bring a bunch of firefighters to a big room and try to sell them some new trucks, gear or gizmos. This is where FDIC Indianapolis is completely different. First, it’s a week long and its big, real big, with attendance in the 32,000+ area. In fact I heard people come to visit FDIC from more than 55 countries. It’s more than a sales blitz. There is live hands on training, seminars, book signings, demonstrations and many famous people there too. When I say this I mean they are famous in the North American fire service mostly but also many are well known around the world too. You will see fire service icons like retired chiefs Alan Brunacini, Billy Goldfeder, Rick Lasky, John Salka, Bobby Halton and many others. [Read more...]
