Dear Member,
In this week's news, firefighters in Reno have sued the city, arguing the layoffs are a breach of their collective bargaining agreement, while two S.F. assistant chief's were suspended for their handling of a DUI fire truck crash last year.

And, listen to this week's episode of The Command Post — where our experts discuss what the best hose load is and how many black eyes the fire service can take.
