  1. In this photo, new Lincoln Fire Protection District firefighters prepare to enter the Charleston training tower for their final practical of the training academy. This is the third training academy for the district. They have recently changed their department training over the last year, but their new member training has seen the most significant change. Now they bring on new members twice a year and they go through a mini fire academy, meeting one night a week for five weeks and one or two weekends. They are given the basic tools and training to get them started, but this is only the beginning. Part of the training curriculum is a medical physical, mask fit testing, breathing apparatus, ladders, hand tools, hose line operations, search, water supply, and review of department operations. The last night of the academy, they have a live burn to test the recruits on their skill levels. After the academy, with the very basic skills, they will train twice a month to sharpen the skills and also learn additional skills. Firefighting and rescue are complex tasks. Lincoln Fire Protection District operates out of three stations, covering 115 square miles, with 68 firefighters. These men and women volunteer their time to make Lincoln Fire a professional department, to serve and protect our community. For More You Can Check: ICO Marketing Examples

  3. The fire on the 50th floor New York City's Trump Tower that left 67-year-old Todd Brassner dead and six firefighters injured was the second fire in the building in 2018. President Trump's centerpiece Manhattan skyscraper opened in 1984, but does not have sprinklers on its residential floors, a measure required in new buildings since 1999. President Trump, then a private citizen and property developer, lobbied to try and prevent the mandate at the time. New York City in 1999 became last big city in the nation to require sprinklers, according to the New York Daily News. Under the 1999 legislation, buildings constructed before then were only required to have sprinklers if they underwent gut renovations. According to The New York Times, Mr. Trump was one of the developers in the late 1990s who lobbied against sprinklers in buildings. He then recanted once the legislation passed with grandfathering provisions that meant existing buildings did not need to install them, saying that he understood they made residents "feel safer." FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said on Saturday that there is extra fire protection at Trump Tower when Mr. Trump is there. Then-New York city mayor and now staunch Trump ally Rudy Giuliani signed the bill requiring sprinklers into force on March 24, 1999, having opposed it when it was first proposed in 1997. The legislation was spurred on by a major fire in a so-called "fireproof" apartment block with no sprinklers on New York's Upper West Side the previous December, and another in a Brooklyn housing project the same month in which hallway sprinklers failed. Survivors wanted all buildings to have sprinklers, but the legislation that was passed was not retroactive, much to the delight of existing property owners who cited cost as a major reason not to be compelled to retrofit their buildings. At the time the legislation was being discussed, Mr. Trump had just started construction on a 72-story tower near the United Nations, and he subsequently said he would install sprinklers there at a cost of $3 million.

  4. White House Utility District (WHUD), the state’s largest geographic utility provider, is using advanced mapping software to help Goodlettsville Fire Department keep its hydrants functioning at max capacity. The map, built in WHUD’s geographic information system (GIS), has increased efficiency, increased repair time and improved fire protection for the community. "We have seen a tremendous improvement our response time to fire hydrant issues,” said Rocky Reecer, operations manager for WHUD, “which is an important part of a community’s fire protection plan. Before this system, we would get a long list of needed repairs, a couple of times a year. Now, using our real-time mapping software, we are notified the minute a problem is found and can usually get it repaired within a matter of days. Before, it could take up to three months to get a full list of repairs completed." Using any tablet or mobile device, Goodlettsville Fire Department crews can access the map in the field during routine hydrant inspections. If a problem is detected, they can access the exact hydrant on the map and report the problem, along with detailed information about the issue. Doing so sends an automatic notification to WHUD operations’ team, who can then schedule a crew for repair. “Goodlettsville Fire found our hydrant repair requests to be easier to track and send on our end, and the resulting repairs happened in a very timely fashion,” said Fire Chief Kenneth Reeves. “Tracking hydrant maintenance and flushing records on the app was also very convenient and more reliable than paper records in the fire engine. We plan to continue using the app.” Key benefits of the program are: • Safety – Fire hydrants are supply water during fires. If they aren’t working, fire protection is jeopardized and community safety is impacted. For More You Can Check: Blockchain Application Marketing
  5. Hi, I'm a wannabe amateur/enthusiast photographer who, with my wife, probably spent way too much money on equipment, and now barely uses it at all! Well, as the IT Manager for my company, I want to utilize the employee photo features in email, Windows, and other software. Plus make them available for HR to use in marketing material, business cards, etc. For More You Can Go: Promotional Advertising Campaign Examples Thanks!
