I recently started working with a local firefighter who has started to branch out in developing his own training company. With the mass amounts of companies and organizations needing CPR & First Aid training and fire departments looking for reasonably priced rescue training this seemed like a great idea.
First In Rescue Training exists to provide advanced safety and rescue training through real-life techniques and strategies, following OSHA mandated guidelines and independent company procedures; in order to create the highest level of employee preparedness and safety within the workplace.

Effective July 22, 2010 it became illegal in Illinois to sell or distribute for retail novelty cigarette lighters (The Retail Sale and Distribution of Novelty Lighters Prohibition Act (720 ILCS 668). We seek your assistance in protecting children from the harm that these lighters may cause as children are attracted to the visual effects, flashing lights, musical sounds, and toy-like designs of these lighters.
A novelty lighter means “a mechanical or electrical device typically used for lighting cigarettes, cigars, or pipes that is designed to resemble a cartoon character, toy, gun, watch, musical instrument, vehicle, animal, food or beverage, or similar articles, or that plays musical notes, or has flashing lights, or has other entertaining features. A novelty lighter may operate on any fuel, including butane, isobutane, or liquid fuel.”

We received an order for a Firefighters’ Wives long sleeve shirt and a Firefighters’ Daughters tshirt a couple of weeks ago from a lady named Heidi in Kalispell, Montana. When USPS didn’t deliver her order on time, she emailed us. She was initially wondering when she could expect her order, but after emailing back and forth, we discovered there was more to her story than just her wanting to get her shirts. She needed the shirts for something important, something that unfortunately many wives across the country are probably familiar with. Heidi needed the shirts for her and her daughter to wear because her husband’s department in Kalispell is dealing with cutbacks and she wanted to show her support for her husband and the department.
Heidi’s story touched our hearts and we thought there were other families out there that can probably relate to her story and give her some support. We decided to interview Heidi to give her the opportunity to tell her story. Below is her interview.
Today, over 80 area public safety officials are attending the Autism Recognition Response & Risk Management Conference host by the Charlotte Police & Fire Academy.
The rate of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has grown to one in every 110 births. Research shows that as emergency services personnel, your chances of encountering someone with autism has greatly increased. Special training has been developed in order to give you a better understanding of how to interact with children and adults who are affected by ASD. The NC Office of State Fire Marshal has partnered with the Autism Society of North Carolina and the Autism Research Institute to bring this training at a conference. (more…)
