I’d like to start by thanking everyone who sent me comments or posted here. Your support has been awesome. We added two links this week to area writers – Olivia Tejeda and Michael Bradley. They each write something different and have been a big help to me, please check out their web pages on the “Links” page.
My first week with a blog didn’t go as well as I had hoped. I’ve planned time into my schedule to writing here and in my book. You know what they say about the best laid plans? As the Chairperson of our local Public Safety Retirement Board, I spent time learning the new amended regulations and reading the Arizona Revised Statues – not the most exciting reading I must admit. Our public safety professionals are pretty young as it relates to retirement, so we haven’t had a need to do much work in the past. As we age, injuries have started to creep up and the “older guys” are starting to retire. Its hard to believe that I’m now an “older guy”. Our job is to administer the requirements of the law for our members. In this case, thank God for lawyers. I spent the rest of the week writing my next article for the IAFC on Automatic Aid. Stay tuned for a post on that by the end of the week.
