Congrats!!! But I might call a foul ball here.

Hmm maybe someone needs a little bit of their own medicine. Let's see what the magic eightball says......
(shake shake shake) Eightball says: Definitely


If I should know better, what's this say about someone with 1000's of posts?

(I realize you have to get them still from ur photo person but had to do it)

Lol

*Belated Update*

Sorry all, I have been super busy this week and hadn't had the opportunity to give you all the details of the "burn".

We all arrived at our training center and geared up (full turnout with our SCBA's {Self Contained Breathing Apparatus}, although not engaged yet). Our instructors then had us enter the conex where they had started our fire. We gathered up on the fire, sitting on our backsides trying to understand our instructor with his gear on. It was something similar to Charlie Brown's teacher.

(Ugly mug, but I wasn't on a photoshoot for Sports Illustrated)

[IMG][/IMG]

So here we sit on our knees, feeling some heat, trying to discern what the instructor was saying and maintaining movement so that our SCBA's PASS wouldn't sound (an alarm system notifying other FF's that there is an immobile FF in the vicinity that might need some help). I must say we looked like a bunch of antsy kindergarteners at an assembly. I was quite mesmerized at the fire, studying its movement, behavior and erratic dance. We also learned about thermal layering, just stand up and you'll get heat like you've never felt! This is why you are taught in the event of a fire, get to the ground and STAY THERE!

Everything getting set up

[IMG][/IMG]

We then vacated the conex and were divided into teams. I was assigned to the last team. In teams of two, a FF on the nozzle and his "hoseman" behind, we entered the building to extinguish the fire. Excitement and anticipation built watching everyone else go before me. Now it's my turn. I got down on my knees with one of my Capts outside instructing us. I took the nozzle and followed my his directions. I went to bleed the line, meaning clear it of air and possible debris BEFORE attempting to use it on a fire. This is the time to find out if your partner knows his role and can apply it. Mine didn't and I got knocked sideways into the ground, in front of my instructor! The hosemans job is to assist with the hose and brace against you providing support to prevent you from losing control of the nozzle. I was given a new partner.

We then entered the conex on our hands and knees and met up with another two instructors inside in front of the fire. He told me what he wanted me to do, diminish the fire using a straight stream, "Z" pattern formation (as roll over is taking place). I did it and knocked the fire out in less than 3 seconds! The excitement and praise from my instructors said all I needed to hear, "YOU DID IT GIRL"! So we are now told to back out of the conex, still on our hands and knees, as you NEVER turn your back to a fire. In my happiness, I took this opportunity to be me and starting singing "back, back, back it up (Get Low by Lil Jon)" to my partner behind...dancing like a wiggle worm, all the way out..with an occassional "beep.....beep....beep" (backup beeper).

Once outside, the rehab folks and instructors starting reaching for my gear to get it removed. I was walked over to the rehab that was set up and was shortly drinking water and having my vitals checked. A headache and weakness had taken hold of me (coming off the adreneline rush). There was concern in the air, though at this time I wasn't sure why. Later it was made apparent why.....most fires will reach a heat of about 860 degrees within this structure or enviroment. My fire had not been completely extinguished by the other teams, so it was permitted to accumulate and disperse heat of over 1200 degress!

In the end, I was very proud of myself, very thirsty and extremely sore, bruised and tired. I later told one of my Capts how I enjoyed watching the fire. How it had capitivated my interest, how I thought it was beautiful. I figured they would've sent me home and asked me not to come back, but his response was priceless. "You know what we are right, Paris?! We are licensed Pyromaniacs! You're going to be a great fire fighter!" God I love my team and career (volunteer at this point, but considering taking a paid position after school)!
