CYA PLUMBING

NEW Fire Engineering August issue editorial illustration: CYA Plumbing.
 
Looks simply-complicated enough to me! With political correctness running amok in nearly every aspect of our lives, from the things we can and cannot say or write, to the once ignored pigeon-poop stained statues erected in parks, we must learn how to deal with this reality within our firehouse walls, too. Perhaps I’m just too old-school, but I’m a stern believer of straight-forward leadership and direction. If you want something done, give a clear and concise order. If you don’t understand something, you ask the person at the top – and expect a direct uncomplicated answer! Ever-present PC creates an atmosphere of CYA which leads to way too much BS!
 
Stay Fired Up, and keep it simple and truthful!

NEW PRINT RELEASE

Guardian-Promotion-Card-PRE-US

GUARDIAN OF THE WILD

I am excited to introduce my new print, Guardian of the Wild. Inspired by childhood memories of Smokey calling upon all of us to prevent forest fires, and my love of nature and the tranquility it offers to all of us who choose to protect it. Guardian of the Wild is my vision of a native woodland fire fighter – ever vigilant and prepared to protect the natural home of all creatures large and small.

Pre-order now and get the signed and numbered 16×20″ print, plus a signed 8×10″ Guardian of the Wild mini-print and an 8×10″ signed print of Forest Hero. All for $70.00 (plus shipping and handling).

But don’t wait – this offer will end August 14th!

IT GETS REAL!

•-Combs-Social

There are a few professions where you can fake it through an entire career and never be exposed as a fraud – whether career or volunteer, firefighting is NOT one of them. Sure, you might slide for a while, but sooner or later you’re going to ride the bull and there’s simply nowhere to hide when you do. So the message here is simple: Get serious, be dedicated, train like your life depends on it, train like the people you swore to protect lives depend on it, and prepare for the ride – or kindly walk your butt out the back door!

STAY FIRED UP, and grab the Bull Rope!
