Video: Fire Truck Simulator

I found this video on Youtube and tracked it back to the University of Rhode Island Transportation Center (URITC) web page. There really was not a lot of information on the page a bout the simulator. Here is the video. If anyone has more info, please post a comment. Thanks.

Fire Scene Simulator 6 No Longer Available

I went to check out Fire Scene Simulator 6 today and found it was no longer available for download.  Fire Scene Simulator was a free software download that allowed  users to import photos of local structures within their department’s jurisdiction and add animated fire and smoke to those structures.  When I went to the website this message was posted:
Thank you for your interest in Fire Scene Simulator 6. However, Fire Scene Simulator 6 and Simulator 6 expanded are no longer available for download or purchase. The creators of the program are going back and redeveloping the software to make it compatible with current operating systems.
There is a link to fill out a survey so you can be notified of the next release.

Firefighter Tattoo Network

Sorry, I have not written much lately.  I had some time home over the holidays so I decided to do my usual web surfing and look for some things to post on the blog.  I came across an interesting site today called Strike the Box.  This website is a collection of photos showing over 4,500 firefighter tattoos.  Each tattoo photo contains a link to the bio of the firefighter who has the tattoo.

If you are thinking about getting inked, I highly recommend checking out some of these amazing tattoos.  The site allows firefighters to post their tattoos and members can to vote on some of the best new tattoos.
