“The Main Street Memo,” is a project by Fire Engineering.
This is a downloadable, single-page offering that will focus on hazards and issues directly associated with downtown-type legacy construction.
It is our hope that you download and post wherever your fellow members look for information. Let us help you better prepare you for your next Main Street fire.
These memo’s are created by Chris, Lex, and Joe Pronesti. Joe is a 31-year veteran of the Elyria (OH) Fire Department, where he is a shift commander. He is a graduate of the Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Executive Officer program and a lead instructor at the Cuyahoga (OH) County Community College Fire Academy. He is a contributor to fire service publications and sites, including Fire Engineering, FireEngineering.com, and FirefigherNation.com. Joe has been a mentor to us both, and we are grateful to be working on this project with him.
