By signing your name by clicking reply here, I am hearby agreeing that I will

1. Wear my seat belt while responding to or returning from any fire call, whether Apparatus or POV.

2. Exercise Due regard while driving, regardless of the nature of the call.

3. Exercise Safety on the fire ground, and always watch out for the safety of those around me.

4. Treat all firefighters fairly and with equality. (regardless of sex, or race)

5. Promote training to everyone on my department, and commit myself into the training my department offers.

It sounds foolish, but hopefully we can start a trend to getting eyes opened to the way things should be. Please type Name and Department

Revised addition 28/FEB/08

I plan on taking the masses of signatures and printing off copies. I plan on going to Local Legislature and working my way up to the State level to try and secure some more support (via elected officials) to end this seat belt controversy once and for all on a National Level. Once I have secured my states ear on the matter, I am willing and prepared to move to other states in my area to also Lobby the movement as well. If you all are as willing as I am to make a stand, sign on board and be part of the Movement. I will be posting segments updating progress here and on my blog. I do plan on trying to get as many signatures as I can to show we have overwhelming support as well. Keep the Signatures coming, and thank you

Revision 05/MAR/08
I want to thank all whom have signed and for your thoughts and opinions on the matter. These names will be a great help. Feel free for additional commentary on the matter at a seperate forum Post started by my good friend FASNY Training.
The site is

This has been used to bump it to the top of the forum postings on the main page but also as a commentary and support section as we try to get this moved along.
Thanks again.


I am psyched at the vitality this has taken on today. Thank you to WebChief for sparking the newest wave of signatures. This new wave is inspiring to continue on the mission of pestering the hell out of any politician who will bother to respond. I have gotten at least a dozen "we received your letter and due to volume can't respond to all"
If ANY of you out there want to do more, start writing your congressional delegates. Include the pledge. Show them that we are truely 1 nation who is done with the lack of seat belt's causing LODD's
Thank you all again for all the help and your pledges.

Hello everyone here
I have to agree with this pledge
1. Seatbelts are very important
2. Fire safety on the scene is equally important. Everyone does his/her job, & everyone goes home
3. Treating other FF is important too Regardless of sex/race, it don't matter. When u roll up in the first in Engine/Pumper noone cares if your black/white whatever, Vol./paid, male/female, they just want u to try & save whats left, or try to help a sick/hurt family member.
4. Training with in is also important. Keeps everyone up on skills, & what they need to do at a scene safely. I myself have found training out side the department is just as good as in house
Excellent piece here. Everyone should read
