http://www.thebattalion.tv/

Goes into the lives of departments around the nation and spends 24 hours with them, 7 days a week, filming their "daily" activities... (they are on the East Coast now). Each Friday at 5pm they air a new "webisode" of "the Battalion", there are already a TON of videos posted.

There are some very interesting interviews as well as footage... for those of us in the service it's a cool look into what other departments face on a daily basis, and for those not in the fire service, it's a pretty decent view into the fire service and the life of a fireman.

It could be more in-depth (going more into the lives of the firemen and women), but the 10+/- mins each webisode is, it's worth the watch.

This reminds me of something you'd watch on the Discovery Channel, A&E, TLC or one of those type of channels.

Anytime! Although when I found this site I spent the better part of a day watching all the videos and each Friday I can't wait to see what new video is out!

I like what they showed for Kentland. Those guys are nuts busy. Live in Vollys and 20-30 calls a day for the house.

I'd love to check it out, but only have dial-up (its all we can get).

They're also always at the top of the news for doing stupid **** and constantly thumbing their nose at PGFD. Wasn't really suprised to see them on there, they do whore some media attention. They do more to mire the reputation of and confidence in the fire department AND they also refuse to run EMS calls.
