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...

Saturday, June 25, 2016 - 10:36

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.

Battalion Members,

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.

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...

You will see what you are missing, it's a great event, it's some of the best training in the world.

Be safe...

Big week for The Battalion.

This is the Premiere for our first series in the North East, and it's with theSnyder Fire Department celebrating there 100th Year Anniversary, big party coming up...

We filmed with them two weeks ago as they prepared to go to FDIC, produced the show in a week, now on FDIC.com, FireEngineering.com and FireAppartus.com

We are with the entire crew, but one of the firefighters we are focused on is the Commissioner, a long time attendee to FDIC and a Trainer, his class was this morning. He is all about the Volunteer Firefighter and the respect they derserve. 

They arrived at the Indianapolis Airport on Sunday, we followed them to their crib, a place they have been staying for years, the registration and the Commissioner as he did his "Tech Check" for his class for todays class.

We are also following a "1st Timer," a newly made Lieutenant.

We will see some training and some at classes, and maybe a little of the Downtown night life.

We will be posting throughout the week.

Check out them out in our NEW Current show and follow "The FDIC Experience" mini-series in the coming months. 

You've heard it a million times, but it's so true and what FDIC is all about; train like your life depends on it.

Be safe.

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.

We just returned from filming in Boston and learned that every year, 20 Boston firefighters are diagnosed with cancer, and more than 160 have died since 1990. Firefighters are dying from Cancer around the world

August 3, 2015  The Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) www.firefightercancersupport.org, announced it is providing occupational cancer awareness and prevention training to the Boston Fire Department (BFD).

FCSN President Bryan Frieders, a Division Chief with the San Gabriel (CA) Fire Department, praised Boston's collaborative and aggressive approach to reducing firefighters' occupational cancer risk. "Addressing the occupational cancer epidemic requires a cultural change for the fire service," Frieders said. " Fire Commissioner Joe Finn and Boston Fires IAFF Local 718 President Richie Paris are leading from the front. Their work together with FCSN illustrates how effective labor-management relationships can be to enhance the safety and well-being of firefighters.

As you know, cancer is the leading cause of firefighter line-of-duty deaths in the United States. Cancer caused 60 percent of line-of-duty deaths for career firefighters between 2002-2014, according to International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) data. Naturally, volunteer and call Firefighters across North America even more so increase the overall numbers.
