Download Free Firefighter Wordpress Theme

This is my first attempt at making a Wordpress theme, with some help from my wife. I have been looking all over for something that resembled a firefighter theme, but could not find anything close or free. ecently my wife has been having a lot of problems with her website because she kept downloading free Wordpress templates only to find out that they did not work correctly. We finally decided to pay the $49 for Artisteer which is a software that lets you make your own templates. It is really easy to use. She made a couple the other day and asked me if I wanted to make some fire themes for my site. We started working on it together and when she put the kids to bed I worked on it myself. It was real easy to understand any did not take me long to make the template. The part that took the longest was finding picture that I wanted.

The header picture is an original picture of mine taken at Louis F. Garland Fire Academy at Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo, Texas. The photo was taken during Haz-Mat Instructor School and the exercise was pressurized container fires. I’m the really good looking one in the picture. I thought it looked really awesome so I am letting anyone who wants to use it, download it. I would appreciate it if you could leave my link in the footer.

You can download the .zip theme file here: intothefire.zip.

If you have trouble installing themes, here is the Wordpress Using Themes page.

Tactile Helmet Could Help Firefighters Find Their Way

A specially-adapted 'tactile helmet', developed by researchers at the University of Sheffield, could provide fire-fighters operating in challenging conditions with vital clues about their surroundings.
The helmet is fitted with a number of ultrasound sensors that are used to detect the distances between the helmet and nearby walls or other obstacles. These signals are transmitted to vibration pads that are attached to the inside of the helmet, touching the wearer's forehead. Rescue workers, such as fire-fighters, who might be working in dark conditions or in buildings filled with smoke, will be able to use the signals to find walls and other obstacles that could help guide them through unfamiliar environments.

It is anticipated that a lightweight version of the technology could also be useful to people with visual impairments, acting as an additional 'sense' to guide users or to help them avoid hazards.
Invented by a team of researchers at the Sheffield Centre for …

Build A Fire Training Roof Prop

Many departments have a roof prop available at their training grounds, but it is not always convenient to use.   It's nice to have something compact available at the station that can be used for practice.  The guys are always asking me to help them build something and I have found several sites that have some good pictures and diagrams which can be used to help build your own roof training prop.

Fire Engineering has some good articles with photos.  Here are some good links listed below:

Adjustable Roof Prop

Ventilation Prop

There are also quite a few posts out there regarding roof props on the fireengineering.com forums.

Some more pictures of three different props at the DCFD training facility are posted at www.vententersearch.com

For a variety of pictures of inexpensive training props, you can check out this document from the Indiana Dept of Homeland Security. It contains close up pictures and estimated costs to build.
