Filming Locations for 2016

Battalion Members,

We are in pre-production to film with at least three new departments between now and the end of the year, we will be announcing one of these new locations in the next few weeks. 

We begin Production this year as we continue with the Calaveras Consolidated Fire Department slated to start filming 24/7 on July 9th for a period of only eight days. We are returning for what we call "Pick-Up" shots for shows that are now in Post-Production. 

More info to follow in the coming weeks.

Be safe. Network Crew

Filming "The FDIC" Experiance with Snyder 100% Volunteer Fire

I arrived on Sunday morning to film the volunteers from the Snyder Fire Department in upstate New York.

The crew arrived at the airport, grabbed their luggage, caught a ride, and arrived at their hotel. Short after, they went to the convention center and registered to start their adventure...more to come tomorrow as the 1st Timer joins hundreds of firefighters as they all meet in preparation to load onto the bussess and hit the road for one of the many training locations around the city...

Filming for the Firefighters Cancer Support Network with Boston Fire

Our involvement with the Firefighters Cancer Support has just begun. We are very excited to be a part of supporting this organization, this is all due to the direction given to us via Chief Bobby Halton from the Pennwell Fire Group when we were asked to film their Awards Gala here in Los Angeles, he did not know that he too was getting an award and we were proud to be there. You will see all of this in an upcoming Special webisode in 2016.

Butte Fire in Calaveras County CA, is where I just arrived to film

I am back filming with the Calaveas Consolidated Fire District, I just arrived. The Chief is on his way to pick me up and take me into the fire line. We had a big dump of rain last night, so It's not going to be what you've seen on Television, but let's see what we get. Chief Robitaille is also one of Sixteen PIO's for this incident, so we hope to get some great behind the scenes shots and footage for their series.  We are going to see if we can find a few of the guys from this photo on the line tonight, photos will be posted tomorrow morning before we go back safe

Filming continues in Colorado

Late in the afternoon, a call came in for a roll-over. In Cortez, drive time on "G" road can be at least a half hour in the summer and an hour in the winter, that's way past the golden hour to save a life. In this case, the occupants of the vehicle self-extracated and were safe, but, as you 1st responders know, this is not always the case and it does affect you during these long drive times to want to get there to save a safe.
