I find that I hate to open my e-mail because every day i find another line of duty death - a needless fatality- a family torn apart!
Having just lost a brother to a true accident ! (Medivac helicopter crash)
I have to ask myself when I see us still losing control of vehicles, racing private vehicles to scenes - firefighting interior on abandoned buildings or building to far gone to save, Are we truley practicing what we preach about wanting to have less LODDs and not wanting to go to another funeral of a Friend and brother? When will we really step up and " Do the Right Thing?"
I fully agree Tim. I also think we in the Fire Service really need to focus on Physical Fitness. With cardiac being the #1 killer I would think we would see more overall focus on getting in better cardio shape.
