My son Chastain, who is a firefighter in South Carolina, was recently chosen by the Aesthetic Smile Studio as a finalist in their smile make over contest. The winner will be determined by the number o...f "likes" on the picture of his face. I would so appreciate it if you would take a minute to vote for him. If you click on the link below, he will be the first of the 6 pictures posted. (You will also see his name under the picture) Also, if you could “share” the link for others to vote, that would be awesome! Chastain has 8 congenital missing permanent teeth and would be so thrilled to be the winner of such a wonderful gift. Thank you so much!

New York City Fire Department (FDNY)

It is with deep regret that FDNY announces the deaths of Lieutenant Christopher J. Raguso of Division 13 in Queens and Fire Marshal Christopher T. “Tripp” of the Bureau of Fire Investigation. Lt. Raguso and Fire Marshal Zanetis died in an American military helicopter crash in Iraq on Thursday, March 15. Lt. Raguso is a 13-year veteran of the Department; Fire Marshal Zanetis is a 10-year veteran.

“Today, we mourn the deaths of FDNY Lieutenant Christopher J. Raguso and FDNY Fire Marshal Christopher T. “Tripp” Zanetis, who were killed in an American military helicopter crash in Iraq on Thursday, March 15,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “They are truly two of New York City’s bravest – running into danger to protect and defend others, both in New York City and in combat overseas. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest condolences to their families, loved ones, and fellow service members and FDNY members.”

“Lt. Raguso and Fire Marshal Zanetis bravely wore two uniforms in their extraordinary lives of service – as New York City Firefighters and as members of the United States Armed Forces,” said Commissioner Nigro. “The hearts and prayers of the entire Department are with their loved ones and with the families of their five fellow service members who lost their lives defending our country.”

Lieutenant Raguso was appointed as a Firefighter in March of 2005 and assigned to Ladder Company 113 in Flatbush, Brooklyn. In September, 2016, he was promoted to Lieutenant and assigned to Battalion 50 in Queens. On six different occasions he was cited for bravery and life-saving actions as an individual Firefighter or as part of a unit.

Fire Marshal Zanetis was appointed Firefighter in September of 2004 and assigned to Engine Company 28 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In 2007 he transferred to Ladder Company 11, located in the same firehouse. In April, 2013, he was promoted to Fire Marshal and assigned to the Bureau of Fire Investigation’s Citywide South in Brooklyn. In 2014, he was recognized for his bravery as part of an investigative unit.

Lt. Raguso and Fire Marshal Zanetis are the 1,148th and 1,149th members of the Department to make the Supreme Sacrifice in the line-of-duty. The last member of the Department to die in the line of duty was Firefighter William N. Tolley of Ladder Company 135, who died on April 20th, 2017. The last member of the Department to make the Supreme Sacrifice while in active military service was Firefighter Christian P. Engledrum, who was killed in action on November 29, 2004 in Iraq.

Currently, 62 FDNY personnel are on extended military orders in the branches of the United States Armed Forces, serving around the world. There are more than 1400 FDNY members who are military reservists or veterans.

Fire Rescue Officer, Brian McDaniel

June 12, 1991 – March 11, 2018

Hired: May 2016


Assigned to Fire Station 36, C-Shift

Monday, March 12, 2018, Dallas Fire-Rescue received confirmation that one of its own, Fire-Rescue Officer, Brian McDaniel, tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash while on vacation in New York.

According to multiple sources, a Eurocopter AS350, went down in the East River, near Roosevelt Island in New York, at approximately 7:00 p.m. EST, while carrying a group of five people for a private photoshoot. Among those five people was Officer McDaniel.

Officer McDaniel, 26, was an almost two-year member of the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department, and was assigned to Fire Station 36, on the C-shift. Officer McDaniel was single, and had no children, but was immediately survived by his Father, of Dallas; and his Mother and older Brother, of Denver, CO. Despite his short tenure, hearts are heavy with grief as we not only try to come to grips with his loss departmentally; but to also be there in every way that we can for his family.

The family asks for privacy during this trying time.

Radio Location...

Radio placement on fires is a huge deal. Melted RSM cords have been contributing factors in close calls across the country an...d even a few LODD's (San Francisco report below).

Where do you where your radio? Many have argued for years and the proof is in the report below, that wearing your radio on a strap under your coat affords the RSM cord the same protection as your body.

Remember, while a melting RSM cord does not directly cause an injury, the side effects are detramental. When the strap melts and the bare wires come into contact with each other they can lock up the entire operating channel. Depending on how your system is set up there may be even more consequences.

Take a look through the Protable Radio Placement in the IDLH report put together by Fairfax County (link below).
