  2. Speaking on "Suburban Firefighting," Chief Jim Silvernail of the City of Kirkwood, Missouri Fire Dept, captivated the audience of approximately 400 firefighters, at yesterday's 17th Annual Lt. Andy Fredericks. Our thanks to all those firefighters who attended and especially those who regularly support our seminar, as well as Chief Silvernail for a great presentation. Proceeds of each seminar are given to four designated charities: the Lt. Andy Fredericks Scholarship Fund, the Lt. Tyler Rush Scholarship Fund, the New York State Firemen's Home and Burncare Everywhere. Andy's company, FDNY Squad Co. 18, was on hand, as always, to sell T-shirts and support the cause. Also in attendance was FDNY Battalion 19, Engine Co. 75 and Ladder Co. 33 to sell memorial T-shirts for Deputy Chief Michael Fahy, recently killed in the line of duty; proceeds going to Chief Fahy's family. Great job done by all!!! From the Elmsford Chiefs and the Seminar Committee....

  9. We have been using Swissphone for the past 6-8 years and are very happy with them. They are exceptionally reliable with basically no maintenance issues. Unfortunately they don't make a low band pager. www.wolfecomm.com
  10. We carry C/O meters on our EMS jump bags. They are worth their weight in gold!!!
  11. Thanks to all who attended our 14th annual seminar, making it another tremendous success!!! I think all will agree that Captain Bill Gustin did a terrific job in presenting his case for the need of "Intelligent Firefighting." Thank you for your continued support!!!
