The Brotherhood Instructors, LLC. Training Blog is BACK!

We have decided to relaunch our Online Drills area of our website once again.  Over the past year, we have been utilizing our Facebook page (right side-bar) as a drill medium.  We liked the Facebook medium because everyone was FORCED to “own-up” to everything they wrote by name.  However, we were very limited to ONLY facebook users to the drills.  We wanted to bring this resource back to EVERYONE that is interested.  We will still be utilizing our Facebook page, and if you are a Facebook user, we would love to have you on board there as well.

We will still moderate this blog very heavily, standing by our previous rules of no unsigned posts or posts that simply bash tactics and/or provide no skillful learning to the reader.

We welcome everyone back, and hope that you will jump into the discussions, ask questions and contribute.  We are thrilled to be working with Fire/EMS Blogs and appreciate their patience and technological assistance in getting this blog back in action.

We will be posting regular drills and articles, videos, training segments, and sharing email questions that are sent to us by our brothers and sisters in the fire service.  We will post links to photos from past classes and upcoming classes as they become available.  Let us know what kind of drills that you would like to see, or if there are any other components to this training format that you would like.

Thank you for your time and stay safe!  We look forward to working with you once again!

We specialize in the basic fundamentals of firefighting. While we believe that hazardous materials, terrorism, emergency medical and the various rescue disciplines are essential parts of the Fire Service, we also think that the basic fundamentals of firefighting have been overlooked in recent years. We are here to help turn that trend in the other direction.

Power Saw Decompression Valves – By: Andrew Brassard
Some smaller chainsaws like the Stihl 025 are very hard to start because they are not equipped with a compression relief valve. Anyone who owns one of these saws will probably tell you that it was not as hard to start when new as it became later on. My theory, as to why this happens,…
