3 NC LODD's, PA FF, People-Fire FF's, Tanker Rolls, Freebies FB (The Secret List)

     

Friday, November 9, 2012 All,



A very sad week for the North Carolina Fire Service family who lost 3 members this week in the Line of or duty related.
On Wednesday, John M. Hall, a deputy Fire Marshal with Bladen County, died from complications associated with heart issues. He reportedly became ill while responding to a house fire last Saturday. Hall, 48, of Bladenboro was an active with the Bladenboro FD and a Deputy Chief with the Clarkton FD.


Kernersville Fire Rescue Chief Walt Summerville died unexpectedly from a possible heart attack at his home shortly after leaving work Wednesday November 7, 2012. Chief Summerville had responded to a reported triple shooting late in the afternoon of the previous day and had not been feeling well afterwards. He participated in a town-wide United Way benefit on Wednesday afternoon prior to leaving due to not feeling well and was later found in cardiac arrest at his home. 


As we previously reported, On Tuesday, David Tatum, 55, a Lieutenant with the White Oak FD, died after complaints of feeling ill while responding to a vehicle fire on Monday. He was taken to Bladen County Hospital before being transferred to another where he was put on life support and then passed away.
Our condolences to all affected by these losses. RIP.

PA FIREFIGHTER DEATH APPARENTLY NOT LODD:
We had a report from some of you of an LODD in PA-but it appears it was not. It appears now that he was killed during an altercation with police Wednesday afternoon. 42-year-old FF Brian Williams (a member of the Lake Winola Hose Company) was killed in that altercation with police but it was not FD related as far as we have been told. Williams was first tazed, then eventually shot by police at his home. RIP. Our condolences to all affected.


"PEOPLE FIRE" FIRE FIGHTERS

In times of political sensitivity in China, security in the capital city Beijing can get pretty crazy. The government, it seems, really does not want any political disturbances during this week’s Party Congress, in which the country will change leadership. This means that Beijing officials are deploying, among other things, what has got to be one of the more unsettling measures against dissent: Firefighter teams in Tiananmen Square. These Firefighters are in position to immediately extinguish any protesters that set themselves on fire. Seriously.

IDAHO FIRE TANKER ROLLS WHILE RESPONDING

A fire truck responding to a house fire rolled on an Interstate 84 onramp in Chubbuck when the water in the tanks shifted. The Idaho State Police says the rollover crash happened shortly before 2300 last night as members of the Chubbuck Fire Department were responding to a trailer home fire. The Firefighters  were taken to a hospital in Pocatello for treatment.

Slow Down. Belt in.
