Why do we preach the
360 size up in the fire service?
Because failure to see all sides can get people hurt.
The Slow House Rules
How do we navigate through such turbulent and uncertain times? Hold ourselves accountable to the level of expectations we have for so many others in regards to personal conduct, ethics, morality, and understanding. If we were as stringent and critical of ourselves as we are with others, what a world it would be.
Don’t forget to love others today, just as we love ourselves.
The Slow House Rules
If we want to make positive changes in our department, we must exemplify the changes we want to see. For others to follow our lead, we first have to show them the way. The same can be said for life as well.

The Fireman's Fireman
It has been said many times in many ways... Most of the work is done by the few not the many...
Out of every 50 "firefighters", 5 shouldn't even be there, 30 are just seat fillers, 14 are the real firefighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the scene. Ah, but there is one, one is a Fireman's Fireman, he will bring the others back, he will make the grab, he will make the push, he will not make excuses, he will make the difference... Be the one...
Doing the right thing and stepping up may not always be the popular option but it is the necessary one... In order to relieve the burden on the other doers, the doer must do... Doing the right thing is still the right thing regardless of the opinions of the spectators...
BE THE ONE
BE THE FIREMAN'S FIREMAN 🔥

Friends as we continue to deal with the growing Covid crisis locally, your Wichita Falls Professional Firefighters would like to encourage you to continue to practice social distancing.
Officials from the federal level all the way down to the local city and county officials, have asked that you stay home unless you absolutely have to. We all want to have things back to normal, but until we ALL stay home this will continue.
It really is this simple, just stay home.
'Stay at Home' order takes affect tomorrow afternoon, y'all... #coronavirus

England Airpark/Alexandria International Airport
Alexandria International Airport to limit public access to James L. Meyer Commercial Terminal
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Sheri Scallan
ALEXANDRIA, LA – March, 20, 2020 - Effective at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 20, 2020, Alexandria International Airport (AEX) will limit access to the James L. Meyer Commercial Terminal to airline passengers, rental car customers and employees.
Passengers may still be dropped off and picked up curbside, but non-ticketed passengers will not be permitted into the terminal building. AEX staff will be on-site to help any passenger needing assistance.
“We want to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” stated Executive Director Sandra McQuain. “Our intent is to limit the number of persons the traveling public and our employees encounter while inside our terminal.
Currently, all three airlines – Delta, American and United, along with our rental car partners – Avis, Budget, Hertz and National are operational and continue to provide services to their customers. Tailwind, the airport’s restaurant, is also providing grab-and-go meals from its counter.
In addition to limiting terminal access, AEX has increased its cleaning and sanitation efforts throughout the terminal and especially in high traffic, high-touch areas.
More information regarding England Airpark and the Alexandria International Airport can be found at www.englandairpark.org and www.flyaex.org.

IF YOU ARE THE ONE THAT REQUIRES HELP...
Calling a MAYDAY should be viewed as a request for help in saving ourselves. There are no rules in saving ourselves but here are some guidelines:
ACTIVATE PASS- be sure PASS alarm is not muffled.
LOCATE a hoseline and remember the male coupling is toward the water source and the female toward the nozzle. Smooth Bump Bump to the Pump.
TURN on hand light and point it upward if the smoke is light or along the floor if the smoke is heavier.
STAY with your crew. It becomes much more difficult to find many individuals then one group.
MAKE tapping noises with your tool against the floor, wall, etc. Anything to help draw attention to yourself and allow rescuers to find you quicker.
AVOID the fire for as long as possible. If you can't find an exit, find safe refuge.
BREACH floors to get below fire if necessary.
KEEP rescuers aware of your potential location.
INCREASE radio volume to full. Turn PASS alarm off when transmitting on the radio.
STAY calm, this way you will be able to commit to actions that will help save your life.
CONSERVE air with the proper breathing technique.
LOGICALLY retrace your thoughts, steps, proccesses and actions.
FIND an exterior wall. Move along it and describe it. Expansion joints in a cement floor will always lead to a wall. This way you are not moving in circles in the middle of a large floor.
UTILIZE windows for escape.
FOCUS on what you KNOW and not on what you SENSE.
SELF-TALK in a positive attitude.
STAY low, move slowly, minimizing mistakes and air usage.
FOCUS on what is important to know, not what would be "nice" to know. For example, losing the sense of time is disturbing but not vital if you can trust your SCBA gauges.
TALK to IC and RIT command until you are located.
MAKE SURE TO INFORM COMMAND IF YOU ARE ABLE TO SELF RESCUE AND HAVE EXITED THE BUILDING!
🤫 Do your job....Treat people right....Give all out effort....Have an all in attitude 🤫
