FF's Down in PA, Siren Lawsuit (The Secret List)

Tuesday, March 3, 2015  All,

Reports from Clearfield Borough (Clearfield County, PA) that a working dwelling fire turned bad this morning. The fire in a dwelling on Daisy Street evolved into a mayday call with some reports of Firefighters trapped or down at about 0920 hours. Initial reports are that there was a collapse with possibly 3 Firefighters injured. We are awaiting additional facts-KTIYP's.




SIREN LAWSUIT

Last week we read of a firefighting helmet lawsuit, now another siren lawsuit. A former FDNY firefighter is suing several fire truck and siren manufacturers for $150,000, claiming he’s suffered permanent, “irreversible” hearing loss because the sirens in the engines he rode were too loud.

Curtis O’Steen, who served from 1966 to 1981, said the companies sold trucks and engines that were in “defective condition” and didn’t protect firefighters from the shrill sirens.

The crew compartments of the vehicles lacked sufficient sound insulation or other noise dampening measures that would lower the intense noise,” according to the recently filed suit.
