Happy Holidays!

LIEVT News LIEVT had a very successful 2007. Our membership has grown to one of the largest mechanics' societies in the nation.

The majority of our guest trainers this year were excellent.

We look forward to a bigger and better 2008 for LIEVT - thanks to your continued participation and support.

President Steve Velazquez and the entire LIEVT administrative team wish all our members and their families a very safe and happy holiday season.

The passing of Patricia Probst

The funeral is Monday at 11:00am at St. Thomas Moore. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the Hendrickson family on their loss.

New Feeds added

  • Contributed by:
LIEVT News I have discussed the power of RSS feeds before, but won\'t bore you again with details. I have added more RSS feeds from fire industry magazines which provide links to stories posted on *their* websites which may be of interest to the membership. Clicking on a link in any of the FEEDS will take you AWAY from lievt.org and TO another website. Enjoy!

Forum Settings Changed

  • Contributed by:
LIEVT News Last year many members suggested that an open forum would be best so that local EVTs as well as those around the country would be able to join into conversations without a registration hassle. Unfortunately I have been forced to change this setting.

Because of this open setting, 95% of all posts in the forum have been offensive SPAM which I have had to manually delete (sometimes up to 15 a day). No more - from now on, if you want to post in the forums, you'll need to be logged in with a valid account. Accounts on this site must be approved by me, so people new to the site will need to wait until I have time to approve them. If you already have an account, but have forgotten your password, there is a helpful ' Forget your password' link on the left side of the site which will email it to you based on *either* your email address or your username, but you'll need to know one of those things.
