Looking for stories
from firefighters
If you have anything you’d like to share,
please email Joe at: [email protected]
As the summer comes to a close, Jersey Fire Fighters is proud to accompany the members of our
great state’s fire service to Wildwood. We are looking forward to meeting our colleagues from
all areas of New Jersey. The management team at JFF looks at this as an opportunity for our
publication to continue to grow, and to solicit input from the diverse community of New Jersey’s
First Responders. Just one year ago, this magazine was in it’s infancy, and we are now well on our way to producing the
premier fire service publication in the state.
This edition continues to feature some of our newest contributors. D/C Frank Viscuso of Kearney discusses incidents at
electrical facilities, and expands on his Officer Development series with “Leadership Traits”. This article is a must read for all
officers, especially those up and coming officer candidates, whether it be in a career or volunteer department. As summer
leads to fall and the brisk nights that lead to winter, FDJC D/C Mike Terpak joins us again and reviews boiler emergencies.
Lt. Mike Daley of Monroe Township continues his extrication series that was featured on the cover of our May edition.
This edition we step away from our traditional remembrance of a member of the fire service and remember all those
responders who gave their lives in the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The impact this day had on emergency services
in our country is unimaginable. Countless members of New Jersey’s fire service answered the call that day and for months
afterward assisting our brothers in many ways, shapes and forms, and Jersey Firefighters salutes all of you for your service.
I was personally involved in managing the funeral of Father Mychal Judge, OFM, the FDNY chaplain who was the first
reported victim that tragic day. He was buried in Totowa, N.J. at a Franciscan Friar’s burial site. The Friar that he inspired
to serve the fire service, Father John Piccione OFM, (who was remembered in JFF May edition) asked me to assist in the
preparation to bury Father Judge, and it became an experience that I live with still today.
Jersey Firefighters is continuing to seek feedback from our readers. Feel free to visit our website
to offer feedback, submit articles or photos, and to register for home delivery of our publication. JFF is happy to cover your
events, just let us know of the happenings in your department.
Again, we look forward to sharing convention time with everyone in Wildwood. Please feel free to contact me directly at
[email protected], for any information.
Enjoy this edition and as always, stay safe.

health & fitness
By Matt Brzycki
irefighting is a highly strenuous job that requires an above-average level
of health and fitness. Being healthy and fit is beneficial not only to the
individual firefighter but also to others in the fire department and the
general public.
Fire departments can play a key role in the physical preparedness of their
firefighters – career as well as volunteer – by encouraging participation in a
health and fitness program and providing opportunities to do so.
An effective health and fitness program for firefighters can be implemented
with a four-pronged approach, involving wellness screenings, health education,
physical training and job-specific testing. Let’s take a detailed look at each of
these components.
Wellness Screenings
There are at least two reasons why screenings should be done. First,
screenings can collect data on the health and fitness of firefighters that can
be compared to future screenings. Second, screenings can identify problem
areas and/or medical conditions that may impact a firefighter’s health and/
or job performance.
Firefighters should be screened on a periodic basis. Screenings should include
measures of height, weight, body composition, Body-Mass Index, resting heart
rate and blood pressure, cholesterol, joint flexibility, aerobic fitness, anaerobic
fitness and muscular strength.
Health Education
It’s important that fire departments provide educational offerings for their
personnel. Arming firefighters with solid information can give them direction
and purpose.
A good idea is to use topics that relate to the wellness screenings. For
example, workshops can be given on how to decrease blood pressure and
how to improve flexibility. Other relevant topics are weight management,
basic nutrition, low-back care, injury prevention, smoking cessation, stress
management, diabetes and cholesterol.
Fire departments can tap into local resources for individuals to conduct
workshops. Qualified educators who may volunteer their time can be found at
hospitals, colleges, YMCAs, fitness centers and high schools. Nonetheless, it’s
wise to check their backgrounds and credentials to make sure that the person
is really a resident expert and not the village quack.
Physical Training
Firefighters should engage in four different types of physical training:
flexibility, aerobic, anaerobic and strength.
• Flexibility Training. Being more flexible enables firefighters to exert their
strength over a greater range of motion. Improving flexibility also allows
firefighters to move their joints through a greater range of motion which
makes it easier for them to perform job-related functions that might
otherwise be difficult such as entering or exiting through a window while
wearing restrictive gear.
Jersey Firefighter | september/october 2012
• Aerobic Training. Firefighters who have a high level of aerobic fitness
can function for longer periods of time at a lower heart rate. This aerobic
advantage means that they can perform job-specific tasks with less effort
since their heart won’t have to work as hard. Also, aerobic training helps to
modify several factors that contribute to the risk of coronary artery disease
and heart attack (which is the leading cause of on-duty death among
• Anaerobic Training. In contrast to the low-intensity, long-duration efforts
of aerobic training, anaerobic training involves a series of high-intensity,
short-duration efforts. These types of efforts are the ones that firefighters
might normally employ in the performance of their jobs.
• Strength Training. Increasing strength improves a firefighter’s capacity to
execute job-specific tasks more easily and be more resistant to fatigue. In
addition, strengthening muscles, bones and connective tissues can reduce
the frequency and severity of injuries. Strength training also increases muscle
mass and decreases body fat which makes a firefighter more functional.
Job-Specific Testing
The main purpose of fitness testing is to evaluate physical readiness. Traditional
fitness testing – such as that which employs push-ups, sit-ups/crunches and
other calisthenic-type activities – is certainly a means of assessing fitness and,
to some degree, readiness. However, it falls short of evaluating whether or not
someone is physically prepared to perform the strenuous duties of a firefighter.
The best way to do this is to administer job-specific (aka fit-for-duty) testing.
The fact of the matter is that fitness testing for firefighters must be
representative of the job requirements of firefighters. In other words, the tests
must measure their ability to perform specific jobs that they’re most likely to
encounter in the line of duty. Suffice it to say, push-ups and sit-ups/crunches
don’t pass muster.
A great example of a job-specific test is the Candidate Physical Ability Test
(CPAT). Developed by the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the
International Association of Fire Fighters, this pass/fail test consists of eight
job-specific elements that are done in a continuous circuit, including a stair
climb, hose drag, equipment carry and forcible entry. Furthermore, the CPAT is
taken while wearing a 50-pound vest to simulate the weight of self-contained
breathing apparatus and protective clothing along with safety gloves and
hard helmet.
Though the CPAT was intended to vet candidates as part of pre-employment
screening, there’s no reason why it can’t be used to evaluate veteran
firefighters. Job-specific testing should be conducted at least twice per year,
preferably every quarter.
Bottom line: By implementing the aforementioned components, a fire
department can help its firefighters enhance their health and fitness
and, at the same time, maintain a constant state of physical readiness.

Are firefighters
tired of being tired?
By Dr. Maz
A new treatment approach may end your daily battle
and your frustration with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Why would a person feel tired all the time?
This could have multiple factors associated with it. Feeling tired is a functional
problem. What I mean by that is that the body is failing to do what it is naturally
set to do. As a result, it will over work or under work causing debilitating
symptoms. In most cases routine diagnostic studies do not provide the true
cause of these symptoms and patients are “labeled” as having XYZ condition,
fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue…
What should a person do who is suffering
with chronic fatigue syndrome?
For instance, Cortisol levels should be high in the mornings and low at night.
When it is high you feel energetic. When it is low you feel relaxed or tired.
Stress plays a big part in Cortisol levels. Chemical stress such as alcohol or
tobacco use, emotional stress such as relationship issues, and physical stress
such as simply lack of exercise and being behind a computer or driving all day,
could cause “Adrenal Fatigue”. This is a condition where the adrenal glands
slow down. According to some literature more than 80% of the population is
suffering from this condition. The economic stress, 24/7 workday and popularity
of sugar and caffeine are enabling this condition to be a potential epidemic.
Studies have shown that many individuals have decreased Cortisol levels in
the afternoon which is the reason that they crash, and elevated levels at night
causing the lack of sleep.
Very good question. Being tired all the time is classified as a chronic condition.
Unfortunately, most doctors are very good at treating acute conditions,
but when it comes to chronic conditions, they drop the ball. There are not
many doctors who are trained in assessing the true cause of “why” these
functional symptoms occur. As a result the patients are given medications to
simply mask their symptoms or brain firing patterns so they can have more
energy or sleep better. Most medications have adverse side effects which have
proven to become long term. In addition the body will develop dependency
to such treatments. Unfortunately, people watch too much TV and rely on
information obtained from the world wide web where pharmaceutical
companies advertise about new medications and pills for these conditions and
emotionally manipulate viewers into believing in these drugs as a way to fix
their symptoms.
If you are feeling drained both mentally and physically, experience body aches,
mental fogginess, or blood sugar imbalances, there is a good chance that
you are suffering from adrenal fatigue. Many of these patients report the use
of coffee or other stimulants in order to be able to focus and get transient
energy. It can also cause digestive problems. Autoimmune dysfunction, thyroid
problems and blood sugar disregulation.
So what should people do who have chronic daily fatigue?
Good question. The medical and patient model has been to treat with
medication, which forces the body to artificially produce more energy. You
and I know this is not a cure, these remedies can have severe side effects while
putting stress on your organs. We need to help the body to function properly
so that these symptoms will potentially disappear. In most cases there is a
neurological, structural and metabolic cause and all three must be addressed
for optimum results.
People should report their symptoms to a doctor who understands functional
neurology and functional medicine. Unfortunately, there are not many experts
to refer to. These doctors, whom specialize in this area, are trained to order
a certain panel of diagnostic tests, that are not commonly ordered, or even
worse at times over looked. This usually happens because of the lack of
training in this particular area.
Based on the results, a trained doctor will use their expertise and assess what is
causing the patient’s symptoms. In most cases, the patient has been suffering
from some sort of an autoimmune condition. This means the body has an
imbalance or an infection that your immune system constantly is attacking. It is
very common among people who suffer from chronic fatigue, diabetes, thyroid
issues, hormonal imbalance, fibromyalgia and gastro intestinal complications
such as irritable bowel syndrome. Patients often complain of being tired all the
time even after sufficient rest, and the feeling of indigestion and bloating after
eating even small meals.
What are these tests that we are talking about?
One that we commonly order is a very comprehensive blood test. For example,
Thyroid condition is a common problem many female patients have and are
taking medications for it as long as they are alive. Usually when blood tests
are ordered by most physicians, they look at one marker (TSH) in order to
diagnose whether a thyroid problem is present. In our evaluation we look at
several markers and assess if the patient has a true thyroid problem or another
condition which is causing the thyroid gland to be affected.
Is there any other test that is usually done?
Absolutely, based on the patients needs and symptoms. A very important test
we order is Adrenal Stress Test. Adrenal glands are known as stress glands.
They are located on top of your kidneys. Its job is to release the proper amount
of chemicals such as Cortisol, Testosterone and Estrogen. These are the
hormones in our body that manage stress, maintain libido and control our
immune system.
Another factor that should be addressed is a chronic infection in their gut. We
have seen in many cases that patients have parasitic infection which was over
looked for years and once identified and eliminated from the body the patient
had a drastic improvement in their quality of life. As you may know 80% of
your immune system is related to your gut function.
Wow, so how do you treat this?
So how do you at MedWell
approach these chronic conditions?
We assess the patient neurologically, structurally and metabolically in order to
find the true cause of the patients symptoms. Then we treat the patient in all
of these areas. In most cases the patient will receive Oxygen treatment, start a
detoxification program, avoid certain foods that they are sensitive to based on
the testing results and start on specific customized supplements in conjunction
with one on one hands on physical therapy care to relax the body.
What does oxygen treatment do?
Oxygen is food for the brain. As you age your ability to utilize oxygen diminishes
at about 1% a year after the age of 25. As a result your brain functions will
not be the same and you may have symptoms of chronic tiredness, memory
loss, brain fog…
Oxygen therapy is a must to improve body function. Let’s face it, the brain
controls all your body functions and organs. If it does not have enough food
your body will not work efficiently, especially your hormone production. We
have had a great success with patients who suffer with these functional

Oil Burner
By Mike Terpak, Jersey City
Responding and operating at an oil burner
incident is a common, everyday occurrence for
many in the fire service. During the colder weather
months, firefighters will respond to numerous
emergencies that involve oil-fired heating systems.
For fire departments that experience challenges
from oil fire heating systems, fire officers need
to be prepared to deal with the common delayed
ignition, and the not so common white ghost.
This training bulletin is not designed to turn you
into a heating system technician. It is designed to provide the firefighter
and fire officer with a few operational tips with oil burner incidents.
Delayed Ignition:
Delayed ignition, puff backs, kick backs, or as they are also called, blow
backs, can occur in a heating system when unburned atomized fuel
is ignited at the start of a burner cycle resulting in an explosion. The
explosion itself can vary in size and effect. It can be as minor as a small
thud quickly followed by a puff of smoke. This is the most common. It
could also be more intense resulting in the dislodging of the heating units
flue pipes filling the basement with smoke, or it can blow open the fire
box door sending fire across the room. Well-maintained systems have
protective systems in place to prevent such occurrences, but as in any
mechanical system, faulty or poor maintenance is a high possibility.
Enroute/Arrival Steps:
• Ensure all members are in full PPE/SCBA – delayed ignition incidents
have the potential to be dangerous to say nothing of the hazards of the
oil-saturated smoke.
• Observe conditions and odor upon arrival – With a delayed ignition,
there is often a distinct odor that identifies the incident. Also be aware
of heavy smoke coming from the chimney, or smoke that may indicate
more than a simple puff back. Be prepared, you may actually be entering
into a basement/structure fire.
Action Guideline:
• Assign members to bring in a few fire extinguishers – Extinguisher
options should include a CO2, dry chemical, or AFFF extinguisher.
• Order a hose line stretched – Fire extinguishers by themselves are not
enough. Stretch a 1-3/4 hose line as a backup.
• Prior to entering the basement/cellar area, shut the remote control
switch to the heating unit – This is usually identified as a red electrical
switch/box installed outside the burner room.
• Ventilate the affected area.
• Shut off the fuel supply from the oil tank into the burner. If approachable,
this will generally be a copper hose line that is goes directly from the
tank to the burner. It can be strung along the wall, floor or attached
to the underside of the first floor joists. Trace out the line and find the
shutoff valve.
• Avoid operating in front of or near the burner unit – the heating unit can
violently pulsate and force the firebox door open injuring a firefighter
• Extinguish any fire outside the burner.
• Monitor any fire in the firebox and allow it to burn itself out - Applying
any water in the fuel box can result in devastating steam/oil burns to
your firefighters.
• Search all floors for any overcome building occupants.
• Check for any fire extension – Thoroughly check and remove any
Jersey Firefighter | september/october 2012
affected combustibles in the basement and around structural members
in the basement area.
• Check for any fire extension in and around the flue pipe.
• Check for a possibly chimney fire.
• Check for fire extension on the floor directly above.
• Always use utilize thermal imaging when checking for fire extension.
• Once under control – advise the homeowner of findings and the service
needs of the heating system
• Check CO levels prior to allow occupants and owner to re-occupy the
• If the building cannot be reoccupied due to a loss of heat, assist the
building owner/tenants with relocation to a warm shelter. (i.e. Red
Cross, etc.)
White Ghost:
A white ghost is a situation that describes a lethal combination of
vaporized oil, heat and air, all in a confined space. The right combination
of the three can produce an explosion and accompanying fireball that can
relocate the structure’s walls. Although their occurrences are few and far
between, they are the type of incident that you will never forget.
A white ghost is a white cloud of super heated vaporized oil that is released
from the combustion chamber of a heating unit. As we mentioned above,
when a heating unit fails to ignite the vaporized oil in the fire box, a
delayed ignition or puff back can occur dislodging the units flue pipe
or forcing opening the combustion chamber’s door. These openings will
allow the highly heated oil cloud to escape into the basement/cellar of
the structure. As the vapor escapes from the openings, it will expand as
it is heated by the chamber walls and flue pipe. This release of oil vapor
creates an explosive atmosphere that is seeking the right combination of
air and heat to ignite. If it finds one, the results can be devastating.
• Ensure all members are in full PPE/SCBA – These can be devastating
incidents causing severe damage and death.
• Observe smoke color, location and any accompanying odor. A strong
smell of oil accompanied by what appears to be a white cloud from the
basement is indicating a white ghost.
Action Guideline:
• Evacuate all members from the area/building – This should include the
basement area as a minimum.
• Evacuation may include the entire building – If conditions indicate
the need to evacuate the structure, treat the incident as a defensive
operation until sufficient ventilation and cooling can take affect.
• Ensure protective hoselines are stretched and charged.
• When possible, attempt to shut down the heating unit at the remote
• Attempt to eliminate all ignition sources.
• All mitigation steps must be done under the protection of stretched and
charged hoselines.
• Ventilate the area.
• Operate a fog stream to cool the vapor cloud and space.
• Be prepared to deal with an explosion, extending fire, and a possible
structural collapse.
• Incidents that involve super heated, vaporized oil are just two more
examples of situations that fire fighters and fire officers need to be
prepared for. Stay safe!

Bill Tompkins:
On The Hot Seat
with Joe Murray
ill Tompkins began his serious hobby of fire photography
in the late 1970’s. To date, he has photographed over
1,000 fires and his work has been featured in numerous
newspapers and magazines. His son, Chris, has followed in his
footsteps and photographs fires, as well. Tompkins owns Peters
Camera Shop in Bergenfield, and in recent years he and another
photographer have been putting together a unique 9/11 photo
shoot involving various fire departments. The photo shoot, which
will continue this year, is an effort to give back to those brave men
and women who too-often make the ultimate sacrifice, as they
did on Sept. 11, 2001.
JerseyFirefighters: In general, when did your interest in
photography start?
Tompkins: Photography for me, in general, started back in high
school. In fact, I took it as a cake course. I figured I could squeak
on through without doing much of anything. But I got the bug
and I really started getting into it. The camera shop that I now
own here in Bergenfield was where I had worked for the previous
owner. The interest just kept growing.
JerseyFirefighters: When did you first start doing fire
photography? And what led you into that?
Tompkins: I guess I always had an interest in the fire service. My
grandfather was a captain with Engine 9 in Paterson.
JerseyFirefighters: Okay. You did tell me that.
Tompkins: He was in Engine 9, and then he went to combustibles.
He retired, I think, about ‘60 or ‘62. It was a ways back. But he
also lived four doors away from the Trenton Street Firehouse.
JerseyFirefighters: Okay.
Tompkins: So, when I was like ye high we would go over and
visit and it was like, “Okay, Grandpa. Take me to the firehouse.”
So, that’s where the interest in the fire service started. It was long
before photography. I always thought of fire photography as
being quite challenging, because it’s never the same. So, I got
a scanner and started chasing the local stuff, and then my first
published picture was on the cover of The Bergen Record for a
Teaneck fire. So, it took off from there.
JerseyFirefighters:: What year was that?
Tompkins: I believe it was 1980.
JerseyFirefighters: Other than The Record, what other
publications have you had your pictures published in?
Tompkins: Almost everything I can think of. As far as newspapers,
I’ve been in The Herald, The Record, The Post and the local
weeklies. All of the major fire publications; First Responder, the
magazines, Engineering, Firehouse, Fire Rescue, etc. I just can’t
remember. It’s been so long.
JerseyFirefighters: Do you have one memorable event that
you covered that jumps out at you?
Tompkins: There are actually so many. Probably the first one that
really did it was the Fulton Street fire in Paterson. I mean, that
was just so immense and so spectacular that it really cemented
everything. I was just walking around going “Wow,” as I was
watching what the guys were doing. It was just incredible.
JerseyFirefighters: That was 1977, I believe. Right?
Tompkins: ‘77 or ‘78.
JerseyFirefighters: So, you’ve been around the block a few
times, huh?
Tompkins:: Oh, yeah.
JerseyFirefighters: I know today that we feature your photos
and your son, Chris, got bitten by the same bug. How did that
come about?
Tompkins: I find that ungodly cool. I mean, most of the time when
kids hit their teenage years their parents are not cool whatsoever.
But it’s just so great to be able to have a similar interest and be
able to do this stuff together. And he’s not cutting corners. He’s
doing it the way it really needs to be done to be done the right
way. I’m very proud of him. He’s doing a hell of a job.

JerseyFirefighters: Good. Obviously, you’re in the business
professionally. How does your role as a photography business
owner and your passion for fire photography mix?
Tompkins: Well, that more than the modus apparatus. I’m not
big into that. I will do it, but it’s really the fires that I find the most
challenging and the most interesting.
JerseyFirefighters: You’re able to tie that back to the business,
at times?
Tompkins: To a point. It’s so specialized that it’s tough to do it,
but I do get the other fire photographers coming in and asking
questions. But it’s far from being a main part of the business.
JerseyFirefighters: Did you do any photography in New York
on 9/11?
Tompkins: Not there. No. I was already here at the store when
they hit and I just thought it was going to be so well-covered.
Then it ended up shutting down Manhattan, so I didn’t even
try. Although, since then, we’ve come up with an idea. Myself
and Eddie Gray, who is a heck of a video fire photographer, have
been doing a 9/11 photo shoot that a lot of departments have
taken part in, because they find it so meaningful. We go down
to Jersey City and we shoot the rigs with the contributing light in
the background, either with or without the guys. It’s really struck
a nerve with a lot of the guys and it’s just something that we do
to give back. We give them cards and free CDs. It’s just something
that we do every year.
JerseyFirefighters:: How many are you expecting this year?
Tompkins: You’ll have some that will show up without telling us
they’re coming. But, so far, we have 30-something that have said
they are coming. It’s scary. Who knows?
JerseyFirefighters: Maybe you’ll top last year’s number.
Tompkins:: We’ve got them coming from all over. I mean, from
places I never heard of. I think one is Continental Village. It’s
somewhere on the Putnam/Westchester border. They’re coming
down. And I don’t have a definite on it, but possibly the Air Force
base from outside of Atlantic City might be coming up.
JerseyFirefighters: And that’s in progress right now?
Tompkins: Yes. It just sort of amazingly took off. Last year, we
shot 103 rigs.
JerseyFirefighters: Wow.
Tompkins: Exactly. It’s just incredible. You know, it’s such a unique
JerseyFirefighters:: Wow.
Tompkins: We left there at 4 a.m.
JerseyFirefighters:: It truly is. Thank you for your time, Bill.

Getting in…
Part 2
By Mike Daley
Last time we spent some time talking about some of the
actions taken before the extrication, or disentanglement,
can begin to take place. This month we will focus on
gaining access to perform patient contact and treatment,
efficient tool usage and operation, and we will highlight
some simple procedures to perform on the emergency
At this point in the incident, the on-scene surveys
have been completed, hazards have been secured or
abated, and vehicles have been stabilized horizontally,
vertically, and internally. It is imperative to get medically
trained personnel into the vehicle to begin to stabilize
the patient while the disentanglement takes place. The
quickest method to achieve this is to remove the glass,
from a location furthest from the victim, so that any
broken glass is kept far from the patient. Once the glass
is compromised, all glass should be placed under the
vehicle, when applicable. To do this, it is paramount to
identify what type of glass is in the vehicle:
Tempered Glass is found most frequently in side and
rear windows. It is single layer, but stressed on the outer
surface. This glass will shatter into small pieces when
broken, so it is advisable to cover the glass with duct
tape, spray adhesive or sheets of adhesive paper so the
glass can be collected and removed without exposing
the victims to sharp edges (photo 1). Rescue teams carry
spring loaded center punches to break this type of glass,
but the point of a Halligan Tool or any other pointed tool
can work as well.
Laminated Glass is found most commonly in front
windshields. This type of glass is constructed of polyvinyl
butyral plastic sandwiched between two layers of glass.
When this glass is broken, it will remain together as a
unit but will crack and tear. This type of material can
be removed with a variety of tools, such as an axe, a
reciprocating saw, a pneumatic windshield saw, and even
a hand saw (photo 2).
Enhanced Protective Glass (EPG) is a newer class
of laminated glass, located in side and rear window
assemblies. These glass panels will react in a similar fashion
as laminated windshields, as the construction methods
are very similar. Most rescuers will attempt to attack the
side and rear window panels as if they are constructed
of tempered material, but two or three attempts with a
center punch on these panels will yield little more than
a few small marks in the window. Furthermore, these
panels will usually be marked in the lower corner of the
window where the word “laminated” or “EPG” may be
present. Once the presence of EPG is found, removal can
be performed with the same tools used for laminated
glass panels.
Jersey Firefighter | september/october 2012
While patient care is being performed, crews can begin
to make purchase points, spaces in the vehicle that the
spreaders can be placed to displace the vehicle’s materials.
One method of setting purchase points is with the use of
the Halligan Tool and the Flat Head Axe, or the “irons”.
The Halligan Tool is set into place with the Adze end of
the tool into the gap, usually between the door and the
post. The tool is driven into place with the Flat Head Axe
or other suitable tool, and the shaft of the tool is then
lifted up and down, in order to create a larger “point” for
the spreader tips to be placed (photo 3).
Another method to gain a purchase point is by using
the hydraulic spreaders. In one method, the tips of the
spreaders are placed between the top of the door skin
and the “A” post, the rear of the hydraulic tool is angled
upward, and the spreaders are then opened (photo 4).
This vertical crush action will begin to displace the door
outward, providing a point for the spreader tips to begin
to attack the hinges on the doors. Another technique
that is successful is by opening the spreaders as wide as
possible, and using the tool’s arms to compress metal
together. The spreader arms can be placed on a front
fender, in a location just behind the center of the front
wheel, and by squeezing the fender together a purchase
point can be made to access the hinges. To access the pin
side of the door, the spreaders are opened and placed
diagonally onto the door assembly, with the tip side of the
tool pointed closely to the approximate pin location. By
squeezing the door assembly, the metal will deflect and
expose the striker pin and Nader Safety Latch on the door
post assembly. No matter what technique is employed,
keep in mind that the “golden hour” and the “platinum
ten” clocks are still ticking away; use a technique that can
be deployed quickly and efficiently.
Now that purchase points have been made, it is time
to displace some metal. A few safety points to consider
when deploying hydraulic extrication tools:
1. DO NOT position yourself between the tool and
the vehicle. When the tool begins to displace metal,
the tool can react and shift towards the vehicle. Once
it pins the rescuer against the vehicle, serious injury
can result.
2. Full PPE is a MUST. There will be flying glass dust,
shards and splinters of metal, plastic and other
materials reacting violently on the scene, and a rescuer
can get injured quickly. There will also be the potential
of exposure to bloodborne pathogens and body fluids;
protect yourself against ANY potential injury and
3. Be aware of your surroundings. There will be plenty
of activity around the rescue scene, and some actions
will produce reactions that will have to be addressed
(i.e., loose cribbing materials, tool proximity to patient,
4. COMMUNICATE! Noise, confusion and tension run
rampant on-scene. A good method of communication
during disentanglement incorporates hand signals.
For example, teams of two are commonly assigned to
To Advertise Call: 201.881.5100
disentanglement tasks. One rescuer operates the tools,
while the second backs up the first rescuer, and places
one hand on the operator’s shoulder. A common signal
technique uses a series of shoulder taps:
• One Tap means STOP!;
• Two Taps means continue to operate;
• Three Taps means we need to get back NOW, and
I will explain it to you later…
Door Removal
The rescuers begin the maneuver by setting purchase
points in the most accessible area of the pin assembly.
The tips are set into place, with the tool assembly just
short of perpendicular to the door. This position will allow
the outer spreader arm to displace the door in an outward
fashion, fatiguing the striker pin assembly and causing it
to fail (photo 5). Once the striker pin assembly has failed,
the tips are then placed between the post and the door
to tear the door from the hinges. Placing the spreader tips
inside the hinge itself can cause the large hinge pin to fail,
spreading the hinge assembly to the point of failure of
the large hinge pin. Once the door is displaced, it may be
necessary to cut any wiring that runs from the passenger
compartment assembly into the door for power window,
door locks and mirrors. NOTE: This example starts the
displacement at the pin side of the door, but the
evolution could begin at the hinge side of the door,
based on accessibility on the accident scene.
Roof Flap and Removal
It may become necessary to provide more space to work
around the patient for removal. One method to gain
more room is to “flap the roof”. This maneuver requires
two rescue teams, one at each side of the roof assembly.
Rescuers utilizing the cutters will cut the “A” posts, as low
to the dashboard area as possible. Once these posts are
cut, it may be necessary to support the roof, so it does not
drop down onto the patient. Horizontal relief cuts are then
placed behind the patient, and in front of the “B” post of
the vehicle. A rigid pipe or suitable tool (Pike Pole, Wrecking
Bar, pipe, etc…) is then placed across the roof at the relief
cut location. Rescuers then lift up on the front of the roof
and “flap” the roof backwards (photo 6). Large SUV’s,
station wagons and multi-passenger vehicles are common
candidates for roof flap operations. While this is a rapid
method of gaining more space, there are some drawbacks:
first, when this maneuver is performed on a high-speed
roadway, the winds of passage from vehicles traveling past
the incident can cause the roof to fold back down on the
victim, and the rescuers. It is advisable to tie the roof down
to the rear of the vehicle. Secondly, the “flap” may not be
feasible due to roof damage from roll-over incidents; in this
case, rescuers are best served by removing the entire roof
assembly. In this scenario, “A” posts, “B” posts, and “C”
posts (4 door vehicles) are all cut as low as possible, and the
entire roof assembly is lifted completely off of the vehicle.
While this will provide an enormous amount of room, more
rescuers are needed to lift the assembly off of the vehicle.
If the scene is short staffed on personnel, it may be safer to
perform the roof “flap”.
Dashboard Push
During frontal collisions, it is possible that the front/
dashboard area can become displaced on top of the
victim in the vehicle. In this scenario, it will be necessary
to “push” the dashboard off of the victim. Access to
the vehicle’s rocker panel and “B” post assembly is a
necessity. A hydraulic extension ram is placed between
the “A” post and the “B” post in a diagonal position;
the cylinder/base of the ram is placed at the bottom of
the “B” post, while the traveling/extension end is placed
on the “A” post, just below the top of the dashboard. If
no “B” post is present, it will be necessary to use a ram
with an extension to maximize the travel of the cylinder
and displace the dashboard (photo 7). It is more efficient
to utilize two rams, one on each side of the vehicle, but
if only one is available, then it should be placed on the
side dictated by the medical needs of the victim. At this
point of the maneuver, an important question is raised: Is
there a need for a relief cut in the bottom of the “A”
post? The deciding factor is based on the needed travel
of the dashboard assembly. If the front of the vehicle is
displaced, and the victim can be removed by restoring
the dashboard back to the original position, then
the relief cut may not be needed. However, if the lower
extremities of the victim are entangled in the pedal
assemblies, then it will be necessary to displace the
dashboard beyond its original location to access the
pedal area. In the latter case, a relief cut would be needed
to facilitate this space (photo 8).
The skills and techniques presented here are some of the
more common maneuvers that rescuers have utilized in
the successful disentanglements of many victims. They
are also building blocks for more intricate maneuvers that
may be required on-scene. Next time, we will discuss a
few different techniques that can add speed, space, and
efficiency to your rescue teams’ operations.
Until next time, stay focused and stay safe.

officer development
Fire Service
Leadership Traits
By Deputy Chief Frank Viscuso
ome people like to debate whether leaders are made or born. The
most likely answer would be that some true leaders are born, but
most are made – “self-made”. A smart fire officer will concentrate
on developing the leadership qualities and traits that are necessary
for success. For the most part, leadership traits in any profession are
universal. In the fire service, however, there are specific qualities that an
officer absolutely must possess. In this article, we are going to discuss 12
leadership traits that firefighters – and the public – look for in a fire service
leader. Officers, and firefighters in general, who regularly demonstrate
these leadership traits, will earn the respect and confidence of their peers.
By possessing these characteristics, you will make it easier for people to
want to follow you. The less time you have to spend on getting others to
follow you, the more time you get to spend refining exactly where you
want to go and how to get there.
On the following pages you will find definitions of each trait, followed by
suggestions on how to develop the areas where you feel you are lacking.
The 12 Leadership traits are:
because situations escalate quickly on the fire ground. A “routine” fire
can turn into a life-threatening situation in seconds, which is why there is
no such thing as a “routine” fire. Your ability to evaluate and revise your
strategies on the fly is imperative.
Suggestions for Improvement: Again, never stop educating yourself.
The more you know, the better equipped you will be to react and adjust.
Practice being proactive, not reactive. The more capable you are at
seeing problems before they happen, the more effective you will be as
a firefighter.
Definition: Being determined means you have laser sharp focus on the
goal you are trying to achieve. There’s a saying, “Brick walls aren’t there
to keep you out, they’re there to see how bad you want to get in.” That’s
the way an aggressive, strong-minded firefighter should think when
performing a duty on the fire ground. The word Determined, with regards
to firefighting, is synonymous with Heroic.
Suggestions for Improvement: Never, ever, give up. Don’t stop until
the goal has been achieved. This does not mean you should ever defy the
IC’s orders on the fire ground if there is a need to change tactics. It simply
means, when firefighters say they risk a lot to save lives, they don’t just
say it… they live it.
Definition: Being loyal means you are devoted to the fire service, your
community, your department, and your crew. Loyalty should flow evenly,
up and down the chain of command, to seniors, subordinates, and peers.
To be loyal, is to be dependable and trustworthy, which means that
you can be relied upon to perform your duties properly, and trusted to
complete your assignment, every time.
Suggestions for Improvement: Refrain from discussing the problems
of the department (or your company) with outsiders. Never talk about
seniors or superior officers unfavorably in front of your subordinates.
Also, carry out every task to the best of your ability regardless of whether
you like, or agree with it. Once a decision is made, and you are given an
order to execute it, carry out that order willingly as if it were your own.
Suggestions for Improvement: Understanding and believing in the
mission of the fire service will add to your enthusiasm for the job. Our
mission is to reduce the loss of life and property, and protect the weak. To
do this, everyone will have to fulfill a role on the fire ground. It’s important
to understand why even the uninteresting jobs must be done with the
proper attitude.
Definition: Being educated means that you continue to acquire the
appropriate information from reliable sources, and that you understand
your fire ground duties; the policies and procedures of your department;
and the science of firefighting. Your education should be broad, and you
should NEVER stop trying to improve your knowledge base. The day you
think you know too much, is the day you should consider retiring.
Suggestions for Improvement: Increase your knowledge by committing
to continual learning and remaining alert. Constantly listen, observe, and
learn about things you don’t understand. Read fire service text books,
attend educational seminars, talk to street-smart firefighters, and ask
questions. There is an endless supply of knowledge available. You just
have to seek it.
Definition: Being adaptable means you are able to quickly adjust to
rapidly changing conditions. This trait is paramount for all firefighters
Jersey Firefighter | september/october 2012
Definition: Enthusiasm is defined as a sincere interest and exuberance in
the performance of your duties. If you are enthusiastic, you are optimistic,
cheerful, and willing to accept challenges. You are the type of person who
is eager to take on more responsibility. The fire service needs more leaders
with this trait because enthusiasm is contagious.
Definition: Being resourceful means you are capable of skillfully, safely,
and promptly navigating your way through a variety of situations,
regardless of the tools, staffing, and resources that are – or aren’t –
available at any given moment. If you are resourceful, you are creative
and you will always be looked at as a person with ingenuity that shows
initiative, and can get the job done, no matter what.
Suggestions for Improvement: Think outside of the box. Don’t get
tunnel vision. There are always alternative ways to accomplish a task.
Once again, being knowledgeable is the key to success in this area. It’s
not enough to simply know what tools are available. You must know how
to use them. To improve your resourcefulness, you must also work on
staying mentally and physically alert.
Definition: The true definition of the word selfless is having little or no
concern for oneself. Firefighting is arguably the most selfless job on the
To Advertise Call: 201.881.5100
planet. It’s our job to put the safety and well-being of others ahead of
our own. Although selfless is synonymous with self-sacrifice, this doesn’t
mean you should disregard safe practices. To be selfless also means you
are considerate of others and openly give credit to those who deserve it.
Suggestions for Improvement: Think more about others and less about
yourself. Avoid using your position or rank for personal gain, safety, or
pleasure at the expensive of others. Be considerate of those you work
with and give credit where credit is due. It’s amazing how much your
team can accomplish when you praise often and in public.
Definition: To be tough is to be strong and resilient; able to withstand
adverse conditions. With toughness comes the ability to endure great
strain without breaking. This means both physically and mentally, and
it’s a necessity for firefighters of all ranks. There is nothing easy about
fighting fires. If a person is not tough, this simply isn’t the right profession
for them.
Suggestions for Improvement: You have to learn to love the fight itself.
Champions in every arena love to compete. However, it is vitally important
to cultivate your love of the fight more than your love of winning. This
way of thinking will help improve your mental toughness. Improving your
physical toughness will come from a consistent workout program.
Definition: It’s been said, “Firefighters are constantly meeting new
people and spending the worst moments of their lives with them.” Don’t
lose sight of that fact. Your job isn’t just to put the fire out, it’s also to
provide guidance for the people we serve and protect. Showing empathy
means being kind and tactful when dealing with people who have just
lost property, valuables, or worse – loved ones.
Suggestions for Improvement: Treat others the way you would like to
be treated.
Definition: To be assertive, is to be aggressively self-assured. Assertive
firefighters are confident. They know what to do on the fire ground (and
around the fire house), and they know how to do it. More importantly,
they don’t need to be told to do it. They just do it, and when they
recognize an unsafe practice, they are confident enough to stop the act
before someone gets hurt.
Suggestions for Improvement: Know your job. Take a moment to think
about your options then be aggressive and self-assured when you make a
decision. You should be firm, but remember the third trait of a strong fire
service leader is that you must remain adaptable, so you can quickly adjust
your strategy when necessary.
Definition: To be honorable means you are worthy of honor and high
respect. This is a byproduct of the other traits listed above. When you put
honesty, integrity, sense of duty, and sound moral principles above all else,
you are operating in an honorable and ethical way.
Suggestions for Improvement: Be absolutely honest and truthful at all
times. Stand up for what you believe is right. Always do the right thing.
If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. If it is not legal, moral or ethical,
DON’T do it!
Because it is important to always remember these essential leadership traits,
use the acronym LEADERS TEACH. Each letter in the acronym corresponds
to the first letter of one of the traits. By remembering this acronym, you
will be better able to recall the traits. The irony of this acronym is that it
is actually the 13th trait of a good fire service leader. They TEACH others
what they know. By teaching, you instill confidence, Eleanor Roosevelt
said, “A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a
great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.”
There are obviously other important traits for firefighters, like humility,
good judgment, strong motivational skills, and the ability to communicate,
but the ones listed above are vital to your success as a leader. Your skill
at exhibiting these qualities will be firmly linked with people’s desire to
follow your lead. Exhibiting these traits will inspire confidence in your
leadership ability. Not exhibiting these traits or exhibiting the opposite of
these traits will decrease your leadership influence with those around you.
Traits associated with leadership failure
To be thorough, we should take a moment to discuss some of the traits
associated with failure. As important as it is to understand what makes
a good leader, it’s equally as important to understand why so many fail
in leadership positions. Here is a quick list of some traits associated with
poor leadership.
• Lack of passion
• Unclear vision
• Poor communication skills
• Risk aversion
• Callous
• Unethical
• Poor self-management
• Incompetent
• Plays the victim
• Tears others down
• Micromanager
• First to take the credit
• Last to take the blame
When someone in an authoritative position displays poor leadership traits,
the mission they are trying to accomplish is doomed to fail. A fire service
officer will never earn the respect of his or her crew unless they develop
the qualities that align with those of great leaders.
“A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader. A
great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Fire Service Leadership Summary
Definition: The first words that come to most people’s minds when they
think of firefighters are Courageous and Brave. Courage is what allows
you to remain calm while recognizing fear. Moral courage means having
the inner strength to stand up for what is right and to accept blame when
something is your fault. Physical courage means that you can continue to
function effectively when there is physical danger present.
When firefighter’s under your leadership look at some action you have
taken and think, “That just goes to show why you are the one in charge”,
you are on the right track. If these moments are infrequent, it is likely
that some demonstrations of competency will help boost your leadership
influence. By consciously making an effort to develop and exhibit the
traits listed in this article, people will be more likely, and willing to follow
you. By exhibiting these traits on a regular basis, you will earn the respect
of others and increase your effectiveness as an influential leader.
Suggestions for Improvement: You can begin to control fear by
practicing self-discipline and calmness. If you fear doing certain things
that are required in your daily life, force yourself to do them until you can
control your reaction. Lead by example. It doesn’t take a hero to order
someone into battle; it takes a hero to lead others into battle from the
front line. Lastly, keep in mind, courage isn’t the absence of fear; it’s the
management of fear.

Maywood: House Fire
At 5:37 p.m. on August 15, the
Maywood Fire Department was
dispatched for a reported house
fire at 310 Concord Drive. Paramus
Truck 4 was automatically dispatched
due to Maywood Truck 17 being
OOS for the last year. Shortly after
Maywood companies were dispatched,
the Hackensack Fire Department
dispatched a first alarm assignment to
the area of Central and The Esplanade
for a reported smoke condition.
The location of the house fire was
one block from the Maywood/
Hackensack border.
Rochelle Park chief arrived and
confirmed the working fire in a 2.5
story dwelling. Heavy fire was visible
from the second floor and rear of
the structure.Maywood ass’t and
dep chiefs arrived on scene shortly
after. Maywood Engine 19 arrived
first due and immediately began an
aggressive interior attack. Hackensack
Ladder 1 and Engine 2 arrived shortly
thereafter and immediately went to
work. As companies became engaged,
Rochelle Park Engine 1 and a Saddle
Brook FAST Team were dispatched
to the scene, while Lodi and Garfield
engine companies covered Maywood
The fire was under control in 40
minutes, however salvage and
overhaul operations continued until
10:30 p.m. due to the large amount of
storage in the attic and throughout the
second floor. The fire origin appears to
be in the rear of the dwelling.

Featuring Deputy Chief Vincent Dunn, FDNY (ret.)
Chief Vincent Dunn will share his forty years of firefighting experiences in a presentation
on firefighting strategy & tactics. Chief Dunn will discuss in detail, hose line placement,
searching for victims, primary venting techniques, aerial and ground ladder placement,
and how fire spreads. He will also examine flashover, backdraft-explosions, and discuss
collapse dangers, when fighting fire in private dwellings, strip malls, and wood “triple
decker” dwellings.
The mission of Moment of Silence, Inc. is an important one. When a public servant sacrifices their life in
the defense of his/her Nation and community it
becomes headline news for a few weeks until the
general public becomes distracted by the routine of
their own lives. When children are left behind they
never forget about the difficulties of having to deal
with life’s challenges absent their hero parent.
Deputy Chief Michael Terpak, Jersey City Fire Department
Structures designed and built out of ‘light-weight” building components have changed the
way firefighters operate on the fireground. With the increased use of truss, wooden I-beam
and cold form steel supported floors and roofs in our residential and commercial structures, firefighters in every town and city need to be prepared to operate safely on what is
being referred to as the “new fire ground.” In this class we will cover hazard identification
and consequences of involvement, as well as provide the firefighter and fire officer with
operational tips to enhance their safety.
Deputy Chief Frank Viscuso, Kearny Fire Department
There is a need for leaders in today’s fire service. With rapid turnover rates, more firefighters are moving quickly through the ranks without having a chance to learn leadership
skills. This class will introduce you to the essential traits that every fire service leader
should possess… and FYI, you don’t have to be an officer to be a leader.

General story
Electrical Facility Fires
By Deputy Chief Frank Viscuso
lectrical systems begin at generating stations and move through
a series of components that include transmission switching
station and substation transformers. Electrical power ranging
from 115,000 to 500,000 volts is carried great distances on towers to
substations where the voltage is stepped down by the use of power
transformers, to sub-transmission or distribution voltages before being
sent above ground or underground to their industrial and residential
customers. Electrical facilities can be found in any municipality throughout
America. As with downed power lines, fires involving electrical facilities
such as substations require extreme caution. They should be treated with
the same caution you would a delayed bomb.
The first rule at electrical facility fires is never enter a substation or
approach an electrical facilities until a local utility company representative
indicates it is safe to do so. Substations carry hazardous materials, such as
asbestos and PCBs, and have electric equipment that may contain large
quantities of oil or natural gas. A large quantity of oil in failing electrical
equipment can cause a boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion (BLEVE).
Explosions at these facilities can be powerful enough to project steel and
other equipment great distances. Again, it’s important to maintain a safe
distance until local utility personnel respond and make the facility safe
for the fire department to use conventional firefighting techniques. Until
then, fire personnel should secure the area, and wait. Attempting to rush
in and extinguish fires involving electrical facilities can be deadly.
Electrical Facility Fires should be treated with the same
caution you would a delayed bomb.
Here are 10 operational steps you can take when arriving on the scene at
Electrical Facility Fires:
pon arrival, perform your size-up - Don’t rush in; use extreme
1. U
caution. Assume the area is energized.
2. Establish command - This should become a unified command
with utility company personnel so you can coordinate with subject
matter experts.
3. Locate the hazard and immediately notify the utility company Communicate the situation through your dispatcher to the utility
company dispatcher. Report the exact location and thoroughly describe
the damage. Wait for the utility company to respond before taking
further action.
4. Establish a safety zone - Remain at least 500 to 1,000 feet away and
upwind. Use caution tape to identify your safety and hot zones, and secure
the area. Request law enforcement for pedestrian and traffic control.
5. Wear full personal protective equipment (PPE).
Jersey Firefighter | september/october 2012
6. Establish an ample supply of water and foam, and set up for
foam operations – It has been recommend that we use a 2½-inch
hose line, AFFF foam at 250 GPM. Foam operations technique for
application at these types of incidents is as follows:
• Place a blanket of foam around the base the equipment involved first.
• Cover the ground surface under and around the equipment involved.
• Use fog pattern to cool the vessel/facility and then attack main fire.
7. Evaluate and protect the exposures – If water is used to protect
exposures, prevent runoff from impacting the energized area.
8. Wait for the utility company to de-energize the equipment
before using water - Do not use water until a utility representative
indicates it is safe. The application of water could trigger an explosion
or possible electrocution if not de-energized. Use unmanned hose lines
whenever possible.
9. Do not go beyond the established safety zone without guidance
from the experts – Coordinate with the on scene utility company
representative before entering or approaching a substation. They will
know which areas are safe and which are not; you will not.
10. Do not leave the scene until the danger has been removed –
These incidents require time, patience, and coordination. If there is no
life hazard or exposure threat, there is no need to rush.
For additional information on responding to multiple types of electrical
emergencies, refer to chapter three of the book Fireground Operational
Guides (PennWell).
