This and That- The Blog gets International’s Attention

Comments: 0

Local 1132 website is down for a day or two due to excellent service from USWARE. Hopefully the site will be back up and running tomorrow on a new server which seems to be more reliable. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope that you check back to see the RFFA Local 1132 website in the future.
In other news, the IAFF is very interested in this blog. They have not found any other blogs quite like it and think that it is a good idea. They are trying to develop online mediums in which members can be informed from the local, state, and international level. I told them that this blog has remained unofficial to the RFFA as well as the Roanoke Fire-EMS Department because I do not want anyone thinking that I am speaking for everyone in either of the organizations. Most of my views expressed are that of the RFFA as a whole, however there is not an official dialogue between what I type and/or what the RFFA believes. I do indeed want this site to inform, teach, and inspire those of you who feel threatened by speaking up. I try to keep my opinion professional and I am willing to hear both sides of any argument. The IAFF has thought of starting a blog, however they are unclear of how to go about posting without official say-so. Much like what I have explained as to why I do this the way that I do it.
Look for the fire yesterday on Shenandoah to be on in the Photostories section. Chief Hoback has emailed the information as well as my pictures to the site for a Photo story.
Check out some of the past Photostories here:
There have been others like the Salem Ave. Fire, however you need to search the archives to find them. I will leave that up to you all if you are interested.
If you have any pictures you want to see on this website, let me know.

Mutter: “When I grow up I wanna be just like you Willy. I mean it, I think this whole firefighting thing is allllllright. Hey look at me when I’m talking to you. You hear me. Where did you get that tie at? Did your mom dress you.”

Wines: “Damnit Scotty just keep your mouth shut and face forward, your getting an award for being there when I was in there doing it. I was doing it, and your darn snotty nose crew gets an award for watchin.”

Mutter:” You have escaped Reality!”

Wines: “You want reality, Hell I am reality.”

This photo was taken during an RFFA Awards Banquet in ’83 I believe. I could not resist.
