    How to Train When You're a Caboose

    By. Rachel Flint

    You were the last one picked for the team.  There was an audible groan when you were the last one left and the other team HAD to pick you. When people described you, they'd use sweet, funny, or smart, but never strong, athletic, or fast.  But you were content being the friend, the confidant, and the student.  Being an athlete never even crossed your mind.  You were always last.  You were the caboose.

    We Do QALO
    “I Do.”  These are the final words spoken before two become one. Two individuals stand face to face, in front of all of the most important people in their lives, and with these two words they commit to one another. And then, just like that, they’re married. It’s done. Yet it’s just started.  And at that moment, the individual “I Do” becomes […]

    QALO Rings: More Than a Metal Band

    By Frank Borelli

    It was a fairly typical Friday evening.  I was on patrol, moving along the rowdy juvenile loiterers and looking for the known drug dealers.  A fellow officer was on patrol in the next beat sector over and we’d occasionally meet at the line, brief each other on what was going on and then go back to our erratic patrols.  When the radio squawked, it was him.  He had a couple of our known dealers under surveillance and wanted to say good evening to them.  One of them would likely drop whatever they were holding and bolt.  True to form, one of us would gather the evidence while the other went on foot pursuit after the one that rabbited.

    6 Reasons A Firefighter Should Wear QALO

     By. Brendan Kragel

    There are many reasons firefighters should wear QALO rings on the job.

    1. The first reason is quite simple... safety. As firefighters we are constantly working with our hands. This means that we are at higher risk for hand and finger injuries. The injury of "degloving" is all too common in the fire service. By wearing a QALO ring the risk of this injury is significantly reduced based on the physical material it is made out of.

    Commitment is More Courageous Than Firefighting

     

    Everyone knows a firefighter.  It comes up every time I tell someone what my husband does.  Oh yeah. Our old neighbor was a firefighter.   It’s as if we should know them (and a lot of times we may!)   There’s that brief pause that shows their admiration and appreciation for firefighters who are willing to do dangerous things to rescue people in harms way.

I remember climbing my first rock face when I was only about six years old, and then summiting my first 14er at age eight. Since those years, my passion for everything outdoors has only continued to […]
