in the line of duty with the hope that those who visit this site will
PREVENT "HISTORY FROM REPEATING ITSELF" OUR
GOAL is for you, as a FIREFIGHTER to LEARN from these "events"
and TAKE THE INFORMATION BACK TO YOUR FIREFIGHTERS and SHARE IT WITH
one of these "CLOSE CALLS" can happen ANYWHERE! Each of these
FD's thought that "today was gonna just be another day"...
just like you and I... and then BAM! Something goes wrong. Please take
this information and use it, print it, forward it, post it and do WHATEVER
IT TAKES to pass it on and NEVER GIVE UP on focusing on
FIREFIGHTER SAFETY! Each CASE STUDY in this section is based upon the
writers description of the events.
Be sure to read FIREHOUSE
MAGAZINE each month and learn ADDITIONAL LESSONS LEARNED from the
CLOSE CALLS COLUMN.
