Scene Lighting Q&A with Norbe Puroll

May 8th, 2020

Part of the Command Light COVID-19 Demo Video Series, this Q&A session is with FRC’s Western regional Manager Norbe Puroll discussing Fire Research Corporation’s lighting fixtures used on Command Light towers with special focus on the anatomy of these fixtures. It is a great summary of FRC’s lighting fixtures including the Science of Lighting and how they are best in class.

Richard Blake, former employee passes

March 5th, 2020

Chief Richard J. Blake

It is with deep regret that the Chiefs Office of the St. James Volunteer Fire Department announces that Past Chief Richard J. Blake has answered his last alarm. We ask that you please keep Richard and his family in your prayers at this most difficult time.

“Richie” as we knew him worked at FRC for a time and would stop by to visit after he retired. Sometimes he would ride his bike (always a Harley) all the way to NY from Florida.

He transitioned to a three wheeled version (pictured below) in around 2009 when we all gathered around to admire it in the parking lot, but we remember some similarly beautiful two wheeled version of his from years before as well. Richie was born in 1928 which means he was 81 when he rolled in on this bike which none of us realized at that time.

Terri Hines, receptionist and office assistant, retires

October 18th, 2019

Mark Roth, Operations Manager, spoke at Terri’s retirement party on Tues, Oct 15 and he said everything so well we thought we’d just provide his speech in its entirety here!

Terri joined FRC in March of 2002 and has worked for us now for almost 18 years. I am both happy and sad that Terri has chosen to retire. I joined FRC and worked with Terri for a little more than 5 years. Since Terri has been employed by FRC for longer than I worked here I decided to talk to some of my fellow employees to get some history to help me write this speech.

Toh Meng, President of FRC was going to be away for Terri’s retirement party so stopped by for Terri’s last Long Island gig at the Rocky Point Ale House to say goodbye
