*************************************

Christmas is coming!
When you're making out your shopping list, think about giving the gift of life to your friends and family who have animals.

  • Pay their tuition for a class on LAR
  • Give them a book on LAR
  • Buy and/or teach a class
  • Donate a book/class to your fire dept., rescue group, or animal control/humane society
Remember the proverb:
"Give a man a fish and he easts for one day; teach a man to fish and he can feed himself."
Make a difference this holiday season. Times are tough all over. Make your dollars count for something!

LESSONS LEARNED

FIRE HOSE and EMERGENCY STRAPS

Next month I would like to write about using fire hose and tow straps for drags and lifts. A question was raised about removing the rubber liner from hose to make it easier to use. Tomas Gimenez sent some excellent advice, and I'd like to hear from the rest of you, as well.

Please send your comments to me and I'll incorporate them into an article on the subject. Thanks.
