APPARATUS STRIKES AND KILLS CITIZEN IN KENTUCKY

That Lexington fire truck was not en route to an emergency call when it hit and killed a woman walking in downtown Lexington late Saturday. It struck and killed Lauren Roady, 27, of Washington, DC. The cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma. Roady died after being struck by the Lexington Division of Fire's Engine 9 at the corner of Broadway and Main Street about 2215 hours. The apparatus "non-Signal 9" when the wreck occurred, meaning its lights and sirens were not activated. They were driving with traffic, heading to the hospital to pick up their crew. A newlywed of just 2 months, she was an attorney for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and was in Louisville to compete in a cross-country running competition.

 

 

CHIEF JACK PELTIER PASSES

Chief Jack Peltier of Marlborough, Massachusetts , one of the great fire instructors of all time, passed away yesterday, Sunday December 9, 2012. A veteran on nearly sixty years in the fire service, Jack was retired as an Assistant Chief of the Marlborough FD. At the time of his passing, he was serving as the Safety Officer for the Berlin Fire Department. As a matter of fact, he was still responding to incidents as recently as a couple of weeks prior to his passing. Here are some words from Jacks best friend, Dr Harry Carter:

Jack was a Life Member and Past President of the International Society of Fire Service Instructors. One of his greatest achievements was serving as Quartermaster of the practical firefighting drills at FDIC when it was located in Cincinnati. Unless you passed the Peltier test for skills and abilities, you never made it to the drill floor at the convention. Jack was an active member of the teaching staff at the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy for many decades. Many are the folks who claim with great pride that Jack taught them all they needed to know to succeed in the fire service. His knowledge of pump operations was with peer. Chief Peltier was an ardent supporter of the FIRE Act grant program, serving as a volunteer on the grant review committees since their inception. His knowledge of the grant system was outstanding and many were the folks who turned to Jack in search of the answers to their grant-related questions.
 
Jack is survived by his wife Sue, his daughters Ann Marie and Melissa Irish, his son Lt. Jim Peltier of the Southborough FD, and his grandchildren, Jason Irish, and Sarah, Steven, Shawn, and Seth Peltier and thousands of Firefighting friends and family across the world. Here at TSL & FFCC, we will deeply miss his kindness, wisdom and humor. He was easily one of our biggest fans.

RIP Chief Peltier.

Take Care-BE CAREFUL.
