New Faces on Our ESD Board

 

Seeing Through the Darkeness

     This is a picture of the screen of a thermal imaging camera during a recent MFD training event.
      A thermal imagining camera or TIC, shows the heat of an object on its screen.  The hotter the object the whiter it is in the picture.  By using this picture it allows firefighters to "see through the smoke" and recognize potential victims or the seat of the fire.  In a structure fire actual flames show as read on some of the newer TICs we use.  TICs were originally used by the military and have been used in the fire service for the past twenty years.  The Montgomery Fire Department / MCESD#2 employs 5 such cameras.  Come by any of our fire stations and we can show it to you first hand.  The older kids really find them neat.
      In the picture presented here you can see two MFD firefighters attempting to rescue a training dummy inside the training facility at Fire Station 53 in Dobbin.  The dummy is outfitted with the same turnout gear and self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) that our firefighters use.  This allows them to practice the skills it takes to save one of their brothers/sisters in the event there was a catastrophic event inside a structure fire.
      The training is conducted routinely, with a large exercise annually.  MFD firefighters train everyday, honing their skills on any of the hundreds of possible emergencies they respond to; making sure they can continue to serve our community with the very best of their abilities.

     Montgomery Fire Department along with the surrounding community are showing their support for Team Taylor.  Taylor Peel is the son of Chris Peel, a 9 year Firefighter with Montgomery and a Houston Fire Department Captain at Station 46.
     To show their support for this amazing kid, the fire department designed and are selling "Team Taylor" shirts in his honor.

To purchase your shirt, contact Station 51 at 936-597-4455.

 

Taylor's Story...We are now sharing Part II of Taylor's Cancer Adventure.  A nodule in his lung decided to grow from December 2013 to June of 2014.  It was surgically removed and the results showed it was indeed cancerous.  Taylor is once again going through radiation and chemo.  He was diagnosed with Wilm's Tumor Stage I Anaplastic four years ago and is now categorized as Stage 4.  Anaplastic is the aggressive form of this cancer.  His treatment plan has and is 36 weeks of chemo and about 10 sessions of radiation.  Taylor is teaching us all with his strong will, good attitude and fearless determination.  Show your support for Team Taylor with our special edition shirt.  All proceeds will be presented to the Peel family for travel and medical expenses.

T-Shirts are $15.00 - Youth to Adult
