Help Me Celebrate My Birthday!

Posted in Choices, Education, Family, Inspirational People, Leadership, Life and Lifestyle, Relationships with tags , , , , , , on September 5, 2012 by firefighterselfrescue

On 9/20/12, I’m turning 36. And this year, I don’t want presents or drinks. I want clean water.

Women and children in Rwanda walk for hours every day, up and down mountains, just to collect water from rivers. And the worst part? The water they collect can make them really sick.

Terrible right? Well, we can actually do something about it. Just $65 can give someone in Rwanda clean water.

So I’m asking everyone for my age in donations. Give $36 or $360 or any amount that you can afford and help me give life’s most basic need.

The best part is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water projects in the Rwanda, and when those projects are complete, charity: water will send us photos and GPS coordinates so we can see the impact we made. I can’t think of a better birthday gift. Join me!

Please watch all videos and be inspired like I was!

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Firefighter Self Rescue!  It is my hope that this site will help those of us in Firefighting and in other service fields to think differently about how we train ourselves for the work we do.  Take some time to look through the videos, and please comment!  I welcome feedback, and I hope this space can also be a place for discussion of the work we do!

Love and Logic

Posted in Family on February 24, 2011 by firefighterselfrescue

After you’ve been a parent for a while, you’re probably like me.  You think you’ve got it figured out.  As soon as you’ve got that attitude, though, it probably means you’ve got a lot to learn.  After reading “Parenting with Love and Logic,” I truly began rethinking my approach to parenting, and I wanted to share some of my reflections with you.
