One Foot in the Black

When you show up to a fire with Ambry Equipment Gear you’re confident that other fire departments will know you and your firefighters are serious and dedicated to fire fighting.  other departments will know that you are trained, physically and mentally able to do the job, and have the experience needed because long before you and your firefighters show up to a fire you did your homework selecting the right tools and preparing your firefighters before they even leave the fire station to fight fire.

Imagine you and your fire fighters charging up slope laying the main hoselay to the toe of the fire and set the anchor point.  You look back to see who is coming to support the hoselay and the other department is scrambling around the engine still trying to figure out what to take to support the hoselay.  You look over at your firefighters who are ready and eager to put this fire out and they are wondering why you are holding them up.  You of course take the active flank of the fire.  You start up the steep, hot, and smokey edge by spraying water and extending the hoselay up slope.  Even though you already covered all the safety stuff at the engine, you hear one of your fire fighters shout out one foot in the black, another yells LCES, and you keep progressing on that hot smokey fire.  Thanks to you and your firefighters the other departments catch up right when you hook this fire and pinch the head of the fire out.

“I’m a Great Believer in Luck. The Harder I Work, the More Luck I Have”

-Thomas Jefferson-

The fire’s out and everybody is giving high fives and patting each other on the back.  You hear some of the other firefighters say “we got lucky on this one…if the winds were to pickup or if the humidity was just a bit lower or if”….fill in the blank… to being lucky.  You know this fire is out because you and your firefighters are well trained, the department invested in the firefighters success by purchasing tested initial attack gear, and sure there was some luck.
