The below Chief was stopped at a stop sign when the armored car ran the stop sign, struck another vehicle and then hit the Chief head on. He is banged up and is in surgery to repair his arm as of this email. He was wearing his seat belt….if he wasn’t, who knows how much worse his injuries would have been? Some say seat belts are a problem. They can be-in certain “tight” apparatus-but until the manufacturers come up with “firefighter friendly” restraint systems so we can also wear protective equipment-shut up and belt up….put your SCBA on when ya get there….
