2017 Series Schedule

TheBattalion.tv Networks 2017 Schedule

A note to our viewers: Our schedule changes weekly, and sometimes the day of the show.

The challenge is with the Departments or Agencies who's series we are producing may be busy during the period of time they have to Authorize the show we are producing for them and we cannot Broadcast a show without Authorization. In Respect, and for Real-Life-Training purposes, each and every show on our website has been Authorized by the designated Department or Agency.

January 31st -  Our first show for 2017 is with Prince Georges County Fire/EMS - St. Josephs Station, the day starts with a vehicle accident with the Engine Company, late night, a call comes in, we ride with the Battalion Chief, we arrive on scene with smoke through-out an apartment complex, the Fire Chief arrives on scene and takes command. 

February 28th - You will find this show in the Calaveras Consolidated Fire Series on the West Coast: The Chief offers his time to be one of the Safety Officers. Training is one of the most important components to be safe on the fire ground. The California State Firefighters Association's trainers cover the state with training evolutions that are free to any member, professional or volunteer, this show has some live fire training for Part I and continues with ventilation and then forcible entry; and a short story how one firefighter found The Battalion. 

March 23 - We are back in Cortez Colorado with the Cortez Fire Protection District to see how a small town department gears up and trains for a possible Hazmat call, portable pump pool drafting and several EMS calls.

March 30th - In this webisode, we return to Fresno California and spend 12 of a 48 with Battalion Chief French in the 1st Battalion, at Station One which houses an Engine Company, a Battalion Chief and Hazmat. He starts his day like always, at his desk tracking  firefighters across his Battalion for the next 48 hours, who's on, who's off and who's trading. Then, he drops in on Engine Company 5 and his first time with a chainsaw, then, he meets up with a big group of Hazmat crew members on-scene at the railroad yard, night falls, a call comes in, it's a structure fire, smoke showing. 

 April 4th - The morning starts with the Safety Officer arriving on-scene of the structure fire. Back at the station, it's positive pressure fan training with smoke at the tower. Late afternoon, we are riding with a new Battalion Chief with Prince Georges County Fire/EMS 5th Battalion, we see him at his station, we drive his 1st due and meet some of the firefighters at stations in his 1st due and at 6:42AM at the changing of crews, a call comes in...we arrive on scene of a single family home, the flames of the fire have been just put on, a male has been removed from the home and we watch them as the save a life. 

April 18th - The 2017 FDIC Experience begins - We just filmed in Amherst New York with the Snyder "All Volunteer" Fire Department whom we followed to FDIC in 2016, and they are back again. This show features them are what most departments do a lot of EMS calls and Training, and can the weather change, from a sunny very cold day to a snowy night. A few calls, a few interviews, some great training with a great department as members get ready to go to FDIC in April, and we will once again be there at the Airport in Indianapolis Indiana to follow them on their journey.

May Date: TBD - Back with the Fresno Fire Department and we visit The Shop, to learn more about this professional departments staff that maintain their equipment and learn how they keep their fleet on the road and not in the parking lot.
