We are sad to report the loss of a Brother

We raely report on the loss of firefighters, so many of the publications do such a great job, but in this case it's close to home, it was a firefighter from Prince Georges County Fire / EMS in Maryland, a department we consider home. 

Smoke-eater John Ulmschneider, 39, died after the shooting in the Washington D.C. suburb of Temple Hills around 7:30 p.m.

Firefighter Ulmschneider was shot dead and another was seriously injured after a suspect fired on them during a medical emergency call.

Our New Show tonight, Meet Calaveras Consolidated Fire

Battalion Viewers, people as how we pick departments to film? First of all, all of the Departments where we film find us, we learn about them and then decide why they may be a good department to film. As you know, we are not about the fires nor the patients, we are about the men and women on-the-job. The Calaveras Cosolidated Fire District is a new and young department with the normal growing pains, it's what they are doing with those pains that make this a good series with some great story.

Filming for the Firefighters Cancer Support Network with Boston Fire

Our involvement with the Firefighters Cancer Support has just begun, and we are very excited to be a part of it all due to the direction of Chief Bobby Halton from the Pennwell Fire Group when we were asked to film their Awards Gala here in Los Angeles a few weeks back with awards going to some of the people that have supported this great organizaion, such as Cheif Halton.
