Ambulance vs parked car

For the first time in almost ten years I was involved in a traffic crash with an ambulance. I am so pissed at myself. I lost my driving status today after the crash and hope I still have a job after they finish their investigation. I hit a parked car while pulling out of another parking spot. I don't know what I was thinking. I'm better than this. It was so stupid. I wasn't even on the phone. So everyone please pray for me and pray that I get to keep my job. JS

Now that I'm sober... I was very drunk when I put my last post up. I had a great Christmas. I spent it with my family and friends. It was 2 days of eating, drinking, and being merry. I got 2 gifts, A blender from my folks and a fire t-shirt from my ex-girlfriend. But in my family, Christmas is not about gifts, its about love. I did no Christmas shopping this year, I gave no gifts, and yet I had a great Christmas. I hope everyone can find what we have found.... Above is a pic of my family and the poker game that broke out on Christmas day. JS

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas... I hope everyone has a great one. And Mark wishes everyone the Christmas Herpes.... JS

Fire academy

One of my favorite topics to teach is forcible entry. I teach it at the fire academy every year. This year I'm teaching it at 2 different academies. But where else could I go and teach people how to break into things? I just finished the classroom portion of the class, I will be teaching the practical next Saturday. We will be breaking locks, doors and windows. We will be playing with power saws inside. It will be a huge ball. Its every mans dream. By the way, when did the students get so young? JS

Why I didn't go to class.

I'm a bad person. I didn't go to training this morning. I was supposed to teach extraction this morning. However I was very hung over and we got a lot of snow this morning. I didn't want to drive to the other side of the county on snow and ice covered roads while hung over. It seems like a smart choice, but I feel a little guilty. I hope the other instructors were able to pick up my slack. Most of them are a lot closer than me to the training site. Oh well. JS
