As firefighters, you are entrusted with people’s lives and need to be highly trained in fire and emergency response. ChiefMontagna.com provides need to know information for gas and electric emergencies and fires. It also offers information on many other types of firefighting responses.
My book, “Responding to Routine Emergencies” offers information that you need to know for utility emergencies and fires, as well as other common fires and emergencies. It contains valuable safety and tactical information regarding utility and other “routine” responses such as kitchen fires, heating system fires, trash fires and carbon monoxide response. The book is available from Amazon and from the Fire Engineering Books website.
My articles, which you can find on my Training Resources page, will provide you with additional information on utility emergencies and fires, carbon monoxide response, and other various firefighting topics. In addition, I have provided a Links page that offers training and general firefighting information. I also provide tactical and safety tips for gas, electric, and other types of responses on my Training Tips page. My Memorial page remembers fallen members of Ladder 170 and Engine 257.
