Happy 2018 to you and yours-we hope all your wishes, goals and resolutions come true for a happy, healthy, peaceful and safe 2018.
As you probably saw this morning on all the major network television morning news shows, 2018 is also the 20th Anniversary of The Secret List / www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com and we would like to announce the following changes:
We figure in a world where stuff changes in a moment-often for clueless reasons, we should probably stick with what seems to have worked….sharing the facts of what happened when bad stuff happens to good Firefighters – so we can all learn.
We will continue to do our best for you in being the most visited firefighter survival, health and safety website in the world, without advertising or commercial sponsorship. We will continue to issue The Secret List as we have done since 1998 with information we figure you should know about. We will continue to honor those who have had close calls, been critically injured or given their lives, all in the line of duty. We’ll continue to by respectfully sharing with you what happened and why-from those who know (and if any aspect was avoidable) so we can all drill, train and learn.
All of the work on FFCC is done by a group of about a dozen gung ho “all in” veteran firefighters who generously donate their time (they are named on our website under “who we are”). As always, the funding has been very generously provided by Gordon Graham, starting when we first co-founded FFCC, way back when.
Our thanks to all of you for your support, your incident contributions, your readership of FFCC and your (secret) membership in The Secret List.
As always, anyone can join by signing up:
For information during rail incidents, there is a FREE app (“AskRail”) available for Firefighters, EMS , Law etc for real time rail information when operating at freight rail incidents. The “AskRail” app is now available from both the Android and Apple app stores.
