My name is Justin Medearis and I am very new to the company, it's been nearly nine months now and I am very excited to be a part of this project with a purpose and meaning, very rare here in Hollywood.
I feel I am finally getting some good base knowledge of the fire service, the more I learn the better job I can do for you. I would like to show you how I edit and what I am doing to take the look and the story of our shows to the next level. Please join me and our Post-Production Team next year and follow us through the production process from Filming on-location to the production of each show.
See you then...

We are currently in Pre-Production for our upcoming filming season. We love filming in the Winter!
We know we are returning to both Prince Georges County in Maryland and Harrisburg Pennsylvania with possible new series being filmed in Colorado, New Jersey and Florida.
We plan for a lot of Battalion LIVE Feed Broadcasts from Location this year. With the addition of our new Director of Production Justin Mederias, a Los Angeles Producer for over 15 years, Justin is looking forward on joining our crew on location.

OUR NEW SHOW - THE 2017 FDIC EXPERIENCE with the Snyder Fire Department in the State of New York.
We followed them in 2016, you may have seen that series. In January we went and visited with the department for a week as they completed their weekly training, some of what they learned at the 2016 HOT, we learn more abut this 100% Volunteer fire department rich in tradition and forward thinking ahead with both modern technology and old school that always works. They check out some new gear and arrive on scene of a vehicle accident not more than a block away... and you may have seen us filming them this week for the FDIC 2017 Experience...that new show will be broadcast in early June...it's all about training.
Battalion Viewers, we are moving from Sunday nights to Wednesday nights at 6:00P.M. Pacific Standard Time...
We continue to have challanges for our shows being authorized by the Departments of the series, they all have been very busy last year and this year. The Fire Chief in Calaveras has had challanges keeping his department staffed and being able to help with manpower and apparatus to help with the fires crossing California, he has had no time to review his shows over the past few months. We continue to do our best to bring you our broadcasts on a schedule.
Be safe out there this summer, you can see what's happening across our Nation, it's not just California that is in danger with wild fires..
Battalion Viewers, we are moving from Sunday nights to Wednesday nights at 6:P.M. PST for new shows.
We are working to bring you new shows every two-weeks starting this Wednesday.
As usual, depending on the Chief of these departments having the time to authorize their video-webisdoes is has been the challenge for years and that has not changed. Case in point, the Chief of Calaveras Consolidated Fire has been busy keeping personal at the stations and helping staff with his members for the fires across California.
This Wednesday, we return with the Fresno Fire Series as the crew from Truck 11 arrive on-scene of two police officers trapped in their cruiser...
Stay safe out there this summer...
The Battalion returns to regular programing starting this Wednesday night with the return of the Fresno Fire Departments crew from Truck 11 as they extricate police officers from their cruiser..
New shows every Two Weeks through the Summer, check the "SCHEDULE" about for updates.
Our Battalion LIVE Feed Broadcasts with professional Trainers from across North America returns on July 12th, more on that next week.
Our hearts and our prayers go out to the families that lost their homes and some that lost their lives in the raging fires here in Southern California.
Have a safe weekend as the Summer kicks off with dangerous fires across the Nation.
