The first weekend in June has been the occasion of the North Country International Fire School for 48 years. Do to circumstances beyond our control year 49 will pass without the school. Rest assured next year we will return with the 50th edition of the fire school and we will be stronger than ever. Alburgh Strong.
NEW ENGLANDERS! It's not too late to sign up for this awesome Fully Involved training next week! Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2491122300914045/
I am humbled that people are not signing up for classes at your school again. You always put on good courses and its a lot of work to do to not have the students. I am not sure if the word is not getting out or budgets are not allowing the expensive of the classes. Wish there was a way to find out.
Extremely productive meeting of your board today. They are to be complimented on their forethought and commitment in giving up such a beautiful Sunday to begin working on identifying courses for your 2018 June school Good work Guyz. Tanx and carry on.
Well another school year has passed bye, again such a pleasure in sharing training with so many dedicated people, it was a great weekend and I guess Mr Baker and all of his great family, and all the board members brought out the sun for us all on Sunday. The lady auxiliary put in their usual touch in all the food they provided, thank Girls….xx And a special dedication to Mr Timmons, there is not much more to add then what Mr Flynn said about this legendary firefighter. Thank you MR TIMMONS For me, there’s one sad part that I must share with you all. I had the honor to work under the command of a few great chiefs and directors that I have idolized in my career (Michel Vinet my first ff instructor and now great friend, Jacques Grilli Chief of Casino of MTL, Robert Imbeault chief of Brossard FD, Claude Chevalier Chief of Longueuil) But Sunday I had another Great Mentor that left me and many others for new and better things for him and his wonderful family. JOE FLYNN to me was a great inspiration and mentor, I had a chance to be on the board and share many meeting with this GREAT MAN, his presence illuminated the room, and the path he walked and his surroundings, Where ever MR FLYNN was people flocked to be near him, or even sometimes to be close enough to hear his wisdom, as I often eavesdropped. THANK YOU, MR FLYNN, YOU WILL BE MISSED. Thank you to all that that came over and shared the weekend and to the citizens of the Town of Alburgh Vermont. Hope to see YA ALL NEXT YEAR aah

Just wondering if she will know what hit her if it blows up.

With everything going on these days this might be something to look at when cleaning your gear next time.
Stay safe everyone.

When the Doctor calls you with a positive reading for skin cancer, it makes you reflect on the choices you’ve made during your career. The helmet is often the most overlooked piece of equipment when it comes to decon. Do you clean your helmet when you clean the rest of your gear? #themoreyouknow #cancersucks #decon #skincancer #skincancerawareness

Happy Canada Day to all our Canadians :-)

Have a great day ....

We always criticize when things are not done right.
Looking at these photos I have to say guys are wearing their SCBA's and the wheels on the truck are blocked.
The way things should be done when ever possible.
Nice job guys.

This morning at 9:02 am Monson Fire and Emergency Services was requested to 10 Boston Road East for a motor vehicle fire. Chief Harris arrived on scene about 5 minutes after the tone and found a fully involved truck fire. Once crews arrived the fire was fully extinguished in about 20 minutes.

So you get to your new station and see this . What are your thoughts? :-)

HAY WAGON CATCHES FIRE IN GRAND ISLE

Ron Prouty of Grand Isle was driving a tractor and pulling a wagon of hay on U.S. 2 Wednesday when his load burst into flames. “ I didn’t even know it was burning until a car started honking his horn at me.” Ron said.
Island Fire Departments including South Hero, Grand Isle and North Hero responded, putting out the burning bales on a stretch of road near Island Auto Haven. The Grand Isle County Sheriff’s Dept. was on the scene as was Grand Isle Rescue and other First Responders.
Traffic on the road was detoured around the scene for over an hour

“Our crews responded to a reported Structure fire today. Crews were met with heavy fire in the rear, venting out of the roof. Upon deploying handlines and beginning to advance, a roughly 400 pound propane tank exploded. Debris from the explosion landed as far as 200 metres away causing two secondary fires, including a large grass fire. 3 firefighters were sent to hospital via Ambulance, luckily with minor injuries. Mutual aid from 3 other departments attended to assist, especially given the temperature outside was 30 degrees C. “ - @william.398

"B*L*E*V*E
CES crews responded to a motorhome fire yesterday in the Penny Lane area, and when they arrived on scene they found a motorhome fully involved in fire with approximately 3/4 of an acre of wildand fire involvement, a shed on fire, and between the two, a 500 gallon above ground gasoline tank being impinged on by fire from both sides. Mere seconds after arrival, the tank experienced a BLEVE - Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion, which involves catastrophic failure of the tank and atomized fuels creating a large explosion. The video, taken by a bystander shows the powerful forces at work during these events. The house shown in the video was not the property where the fire was located, but a was a neighboring property. Thankfully no firefighters were injured in the event, and they were able to quickly extinguish the fire with the assistance of Kenai Fire Department and the Alaska Division of Forestry. While this fire did not start as a wildland fire, it was one of seven fires that CES responded to yesterday all of which involved a wildand fire component - please remember that there is a burn suspension in effect and open burning is not allowed.

[⚠ WARNING: “EXTREME” FIRE HAZARD FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS ⚠]
SOPFEU is appealing to the public to use extreme caution when outdoors the next few days. Since the beginning of spring, a much higher number of fires than usual has been recorded, despite the ban on open fires which continues to prevail over much of Quebec. Since Saturday, 64 fires have been recorded. Current weather conditions are causing the fire danger to reach the "extreme" level over most of Quebec.
The situation for the next few days is even more worrisome as the weather forecast will keep conditions favourable to the outbreak of fires. High temperatures, a lack of precipitation, and very low humidity will assist in the outbreak of fires in the coming days. SOPFEU also recalls that in spring, greenery is not yet present everywhere. Dead leaves and dry grasses are highly flammable. It only takes a few hours of sunshine and a little wind to dry out the brush and increase the risk of fire, even in places where the snow has just disappeared.
