New on Firefighter Netcast: “The Front Seat” Premieres Wednesday!
“You can do everything right in this job and still get killed” – Paddy Brown, Captain Ladder 3 – lost 09/11/01
Wednesday night, the Firefighter Netcast family grows once again as John and Rhett welcome the newest member of the Firefighter Netcast family, Lieutenant David LeBlanc, from East Harwich, MA.
His new program is called “The Front Seat”- reflections on the right, the wrong, and the why. In each program, Dave will facilitate commentary about today’s Fire Service, training and techniques. We’ll be focusing on keeping our members safe while adhering to the principals of our Profession.
Dave is not a stranger to Firefighter Netcast, having been a contributor and guest several times over the last year. Indeed, he has made a great impression on us all. He is also a contributor to Backstep Firefighter over at Fire EMS Blogs as well as many other sites..
Through his writings and appearances on the show, one thing becomes glaringly clear: Dave LeBlanc is passionate about the fire service. He is never afraid to voice his opinion, yet can always be counted on to respect those who differ with him.
This is exactly the type of discussion Firefighter Netcast is looking to create- that banter back and forth around the station’s kitchen table, or as we jaw around the back step of the apparatus.
Dave LeBlanc began in the Fire Service in 1986. He was a Call Firefighter for the Dennis Fire Department and a Volunteer for both the West Haven Fire Department and the Allingtown Fire Department in West Haven, Connecticut. He has a Bachelors degree in Arson Investigation from the University of New Haven.
In 1993 he started working full time for Harwich Fire Department in Massachusetts as a Fire Alarm Operator. He became a Firefighter in 2000. He is currently a Lieutenant assigned to Harwich Station 2 in East Harwich, MA. Now, he brings his experience, his ideas, and his flavor to Firefighter Netcast.
