  3. We use the M40 Multi-Gas Detector. Meters 02, LEL, H2S, and CO, this came on recommendation from Mount Vernon. Great meter, easy to calibrate, have not had an issue yet. Comes with a multitude of clips for almost any application. Rugged and easy to use. Price is in the ~$700-$800 range. Well worth it, we budgeted for a second one next year.
  4. Not totally on topic, but in the scope, interesting read... Linky
  5. From what I am told the ladder is quite the beast, the decking around the turntable is quite thick and the outriggers span out quite a bit. But either way congrats to the Jakes in Mount Vernon!
  6. You never know where these people are working on their plans, our area is as we know very accessibly to the greater city area and the city itself so like aforementioned keep this in the back of your head for now guys.

  8. Thank you to everyone for your answers, I wanted to get an idea of what everyone else was doing. I see that there is quite a diverse set of solutions to this, and I like that everyone is doing hands on. Thanks again everyone, you have helped me in what I needed to accomplish.
  9. I am interested in hearing a few different things, so let us dive in.. How are you training Forcible Entry? If you are using a prop, how did you come about it? If you made it how easy was it to make? How are you backing up the how you force with why you are forcing as such? If you are not using a prop, how are you effectively communicating the skills without the hands on? Mimicking the force used on doors around the firehouse? Movies? Etc. I am curious to see what methodology TO's are using to teach this skill which I think sometimes goes by the wayside in companies not frequently utilizing it, and naturally in those that do it every day. Thanks for all of your responses and discussion before this gets started, and please post pictures if you have them!
  10. From what I understand on FE the bottles integrate with existing harnesses. I am curious to see what matches up to what but that is what I read on FE. I just priced 4.5 bottles at way less than 1k a piece.
  11. Lower profile, lighter weight, just as safe? Count me in.
  12. We stripped all struts, air bags, and cribbing from the rescues of Millerton, Amenia, Wassaic, and Stanford. We had Millbrook en route but realized we were in a good point before they arrived. Pallets were a small part of the cribbing at first due to the lack of anything else. They did wind up playing a small roll however.
  13. Felt in parts of Millerton, mainly along the business district in a straight line. No damage but we were a rockin'.
  14. Thank you Seth for posting about the anti-negativity campaign. I am going to refrain from commenting on what has transpired on this thread since the last time I was one to read it because Mark went against his better judgment to post these pictures on here so we could talk about a unique scenario (thanks Mark), and someone had to mount the QB chair this fine Monday to pick apart PT issues. The Medics and EMS personnel on scene have enough crust on their EMS gear for me to trust whatever treatment they executed, and that is the bottom line. The pictures give no one enough basis for any claims otherwise. I want to again thank those who were there or involved in any way shape or form, a late thanks to the Medivac crew who was on standby for a portion of the call. And a big thank you to those who have contributed positively and constructively to this thread.
  15. Of course, they are the unsung helpers in a lot of cases.
