I new Joe back in the 70"s when he was active with the ropes. We under his direction had many drills behind my house over the brook. Making staged rescues over the brook. Joe was a smart man and new his stuff.
Jos is in a better place now with our Lord and GOD bless him and all of the Firefighters that give it all for out safety
