Kansas City (MO) Firefighters now take two safety steps that might have saved the lives of two brother Firefighters, Larry Leggio, 43, and John Mesh, 39 in that 2015 building collapse.
The steps were among the recommendations in a federal report released yesterday.
HERE is that report:
Emergency tones are sounded, as they were two years ago, when firefighters are ordered out of a collapse zone. But now heads are counted to make sure everyone got the message — which was not done before. Fire Chief Paul Berardi acknowledged those steps might have saved the lives of John Mesh and Larry Leggio, who perished at that fire.
===ANOTHER opportunity to honor the lives of these men and the work of the KCMoFD & NIOSH-by using this report as a template to determine if “that” could happen at any of our FD’s. RIP.
